Wellington and Loxahatchee Groves, Florida, are well known internationally as superlative equestrian areas, and with good reason. The largest horse show in the world – the Winter Equestrian Festival – is held annually in Wellington mid January through March or early April. Additional equestrian events are held throughout the year.
Nearly 60 miles of equestrian trails traverse the area – another reason Wellington and Loxahatchee Groves Florida Bed and Breakfasts are a destination for folks who enjoy horseback riding. Some Loxahatchee Groves Florida Bed and Breakfasts allow guests to bring their own horses – and the horses lodge as luxuriantly as their owners. Folks bring their horses for equestrian events, then linger to explore miles of trails.
Eventually, even the most dedicated equestrian eventually craves another activity. Loxahatchee Groves and Wellington are close to West Palm Beach, an area rich in culture, the arts. After a morning or full day of riding, a short drive to West Palm Beach brings the ocean and a plethora of cultural activities. Norton Museum of Art currently offers exhibits about Altered States, Photographs, and Eternal China: Tales from the Crypt. The Kravis Center for the Performing Arts brings such big names as Bryan Adams, regional concert series, and more. And West Palm Beach offers restaurants galore.
