In the middle of Palm Beach Shores, a tiny town at the southern end of Singer Island, there's a beautiful walking trail with an Old Florida feel and gorgeous views in every direction.

Palm Beach Shores is a peninsula surrounded by the Lake Worth Lagoon the the west, Atlantic Ocean to the east, and Palm Beach Inlet to the south. The walking/biking trail starts at Bamboo Road and Park Avenue near a large fountain and ends at a historic jetty marking the easternmost point of Florida.

The trail is about a mile long and passes by Town Hall, two marinas, and houses that'll wow you. There are massive banyan trees along the trail as well as benches, pretty landscaping and vintage buildings and restaurants reminiscent of the Old Florida days. Look to the

Since most of the cities in Palm Beach County contain either "Palm" or "Beach" in their name, it can be easy for new residents to get a little confused about where things are. 

The county has a 1,970 square-mile area with a population nearing 1.5 million. Being so large, most people think of it in two parts- the north and the south. The north side of Palm Beach County starts with Jupiter, then Juno Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, North Palm Beach and Singer Island. The south side continues down the coast with West Palm Beach, Palm Beach, Lake Worth, Delray Beach and Boca Raton.

The Lyrid meteor showers is an annual event where the April Lyrids shoot across the sky from the 16th-26th of the month. 

The peak of the meteor shower this year will be Saturday night, the 21st, and early morning on Sunday the 22nd. 

The Lyrids are space dust from the comet, Thatcher, which orbits our sun every 415 years. Earth crosses the path of the comet every April and bits of rock enter our upper atmosphere at the rate of 110,000 mph, resulting in a phenomenal display across the night sky.

The Lyrids get their name because they are seen in the constellation Lyra the Harp. They were first observed by the Chinese more than 2,600 years ago.

As the Lyrid meteor shower takes place throughout the week, you can usually see an average of 20

The Palm Beach County coastline is riddled with natural and man-made reefs, sunken ships, barges and more. There are nearly 150 artificial dive sites off the coast and some of the coolest ones happen to be right around Singer Island.

To the west side of the Island in the inlet, there's a snorkeling trail at Phil Foster Park incorporating preserved reef with artificial concrete structures and sculptures. You can swim along natural limestone rock, filled with holes and crevices which are ideal hiding spots for sea life like octopus, eel and lionfish. Follow the trail to a sunken speed boat and over to sculptures like the three hammerhead sharks. Most of the time you can also find starfish, manta rays, sea turtles, and schools of snook and

The Great American Cleanup is a nationwide beach cleanup in honor of Earth Day. Next Saturday, people all over the country will head to the beach with a bag and gloves to pick up litter that pollutes our oceans and kills marine life.

Singer Island is an important beach to keep clean because many Loggerheads and other sea turtles use it as a nesting ground. The tiny island sees a whole 5 percent of the Loggerhead population and last year the Loggerhead Marinelife Center recorded 4,000 nests. 

You can help keep our beaches beautiful by participating in a beach cleanup with local non-profits like the Friends of John D. MacArthur Beach State Park. They'll be be participating in the Great American Cleanup and hosting a beach clean on Saturday, April

Located on picture-perfect Singer Island, Martinique is a gated community of 4 condominiums: the Martinique II Towers, the Ocean House Condo and the Martinique Townhouse.

The complex was named after the Caribbean island of Martinique for their similarities like clear water, year-round beach days, perfect weather and a small islander population. With amenities like private beach space, heated pools and panoramic oceanfront views, you'll feel like you're in paradise every day (only you don't have to worry about a 4,700-foot volcano erupting, unlike the Martinique in the West Indies).

Other features include an elevated hot tub, fully equipped gym, sauna, tennis courts, a luxurious lounge, billiard room, full library and a restaurant.
