Sunshine and bikini-friendly temperatures are practically guaranteed in Florida at this time of year. But best of all are the bargain rates at The Breakers Palm Beach and other plush resorts.

Through Sept. 30, weekday room rates at The Breakers start from $299. The towering Italian Renaissance-inspired luxury hotel also offers a variety of complimentary add-ons, including continental breakfast and access to a children’s day camp, as well as substantial savings on green fees at the property’s two golf courses.

The historic 540-room hotel is set on 140 acres of oceanfront property in the heart of Palm Beach, the famed playground of Rockefellers, Vanderbilts and Kennedys for more than a century. Within walking distance of the hotel’s front doors are the dozens of boutiques, galleries and upscale restaurants on Worth Avenue and its spider web of courtyards and vias.

Reputed to be Florida’s first 18-hole layout when it opened in 1897, the on-site Ocean Course is a lush 6,100-yard beauty redesigned by Brian Silva in 2000. A short shuttle ride from the resort is the Breakers Rees Jones Course, a challenging beast built in Jones’s familiar neo-classic style.
