Traveling to The Greenbrier Resort from Palm Beach


With travel restrictions lessening, we are thinking about travel plans! This travel series will include destinations in Florida within driving distance of Palm Beach (Hawk’s Cay, The Seagate Hotel in Delray, Kennedy Space Center), as well as other places you might consider visiting! One of my favorite vacations has been to The Greenbrier Resort in White Sulfur Springs, WV. Known as “America’s Resort,” it is like stepping back in time, or into a scene from a movie. The resort is located in the picturesque valley of White Sulfur Springs, West Virginia.

How to get there:

From Palm Beach County, you can either fly into into Greenbrier Valley Airport (LWB), located 10 miles from the Resort, or Roanoke International Airport (ROA), which is about an hour and a half drive to the Greenbrier.

Where to stay:

The Greenbrier Resort, in White Sulfur Springs, West Virginia. 

Things to Do:

The Greenbrier is a beautiful resort steeped in history. It was the site of a secret presidential bunker for years, and you can take a tour during your visit. It is a “bucket list” golf destination, made famous by Sam Snead, and hosts an annual PGA Tour event. There are so many activities to choose from, including beautiful indoor and outdoor pools, spa,  the Casino Club, afternoon tea, tennis, golf, croquet, fishing, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, shopping, and even falconry and archery.

Places to Eat:

Dining options include: The Main Dining Room, In-Fusion, The Forum, Sam Snead’s, Prime 44 West, Draper’s, Slammin’ Sammy’s, The Pizza Shoppe, and in-room dining, as well as options to order food and drinks at the pool (Treetops Café), Spa (Rhododendron Spa Café), coffee shop, smoothie bar, and happy hour in the Casino Club (Twelve Oaks).

The Main Dining Room at The Greenbrier is a special experience, including live music, and a dress code including jackets and ties for men. The produce served in all the restaurants is grown locally and without pesticides on The Greenbrier Farm, providing farm-to-table dining.
