Walk route takes you past: the Breakers, an oceanfront 5 star hotel, modeled after Rome's Villa Medici, that has stunning Italian Renaissance architecture; Flagler Museum the former estate of Standard Oil Company millionaire Henry Flagler, hailed as more magnificent than any other private dwelling in the world; along Worth Avenue -- one of the worlds most exclusive shopping districts, and much more.
