AMERICA’S FIRST RESORT DESTINATION

An exciting and informative new series, America’s First Resort Destination, is joining The Palm Beaches.TV lineup! Palm Beach is often called America’s First Resort Destination because American industrialist Henry Flagler, built the railroad that brought vacationing Americans from the north down to the warm Florida beaches. He developed hotel properties right on the water’s edge – an innovation for that time. What ultimately became The Breakers resort was one of the first properties built to host sun-seeking guests over a century ago. This new series will explore the histories of the earliest influencers, like Flagler and architect Addison Mizner.

Keli Ferguson, sports anchor for local network affiliates WPTV and FOX 29, hosts the show. “ I love exploring the history, people and architecture of The Palm Beaches and how Palm Beach County became America's First Resort Destination! It was paradise then and is still paradise now!" Future episodes will find Keli enjoying a bicycle tour along Worth Avenue, Palm Beach island’s most glamorous shopping district; visiting unique architectural structures; sampling delicious dishes, and exploring the many dynamic attractions that make The Palm Beaches a true resort destination.

The three-episode series is produced by Jeff Aderman at AA Video  “Capturing the beautiful scenery, historic structures and unique amenities of our area has been a special thrill. The Palm Beaches is a playground for every traveler, budget and interest,” says Aderman. “I’m delighted to deliver these segments to viewers. Keli is the perfect host and storyteller.” America’s First Resort Destination will air on Discovery Channel’s Destination America this summer as well as ThePalmBeaches.TV
