WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Across the darkened Intracoastal Waterway in Palm Beach, a string of lights traced the twin towers of the Breakers Hotel. The white marble and stone walls of the Henry Morrison Flagler mansion — now a museum of life in the Gilded Age — glowed in a wash of spotlights.

At the lookout point, the rooftop bar and pool of the Ben hotel, the voices of nicely turned-out men and women struggled against thumping, party rhythms. The margaritas and sauvignon blanc were flowing.

It was the start of another pleasant evening in the sister cities of the Palm Beaches, fabulously wealthy Palm Beach and the striving business city of West Palm Beach.

They and nearby Boca Raton — another place with more than its share of Bentleys, Aston Martins and Maseratis — often see a surge in visitors in early December when their art museums — the Norton Museum of Art and the Boca Raton Museum of Art — attract spillover audiences from the tens of thousands of art lovers going to Art Basel Miami Beach. This year the museums are presenting strong Latin American exhibitions in contrast to the mostly contemporary work at Art Basel.
