The rivalry between sunrise and sunset continues on a daily basis in The Palm Beaches. The morning sun wakes up the world, and all day the sun works to out-do the morning with amazing colors that produce striking sunsets in the evening.
Arguably the best angle in town is atop the Jupiter Lighthouse, looking to the east in the morning or looking west in the evening down the Loxahatchee River. The Lighthouse is a bit of a showoff when it comes to picture making. Of course, there are great spots on the ground at DuBois Park in Jupiter to frame up an image.

Grassy Waters in West Palm Beach is a pristine Everglades habitat that covers 15,000 acres. It offers the sunset picture maker freshwater marshes, clumps of grasses, large stands of cypress trees, and boardwalks with places to sit along the trail where you can spot wading birds, bobcats, white-tailed deer and river otters to name a few.

South County Regional Park provides a great setting to capture images of the sunset, and there are plenty of nearby options for unobstructed sight lines looking west over the 147,000+ acres that make up the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge. Adventurers can even climb the tower at Peaceful Waters Sanctuary in Wellington for a spectacular sunset.

You could always choose to chase the sun after a sunrise session on any of the 47 miles of beaches, head west to Lake Okeechobee or Lion Country Safari and frame up the grassy backdrop as the sun dips below the horizon.
