The Kennedys and Palm Beach, Fla.

According to Barron’s, the town of Palm Beach is the ninth-best place
for a second home in America. “This pedigreed place — the Kennedys and
the Vanderbilts had oceanfront homes for decades — got its groove back
in 2010, as residents recovered from the Bernie Madoff scandal and the
ravages of the credit crisis,” the magazine proclaims. It calls the town
part of the so-called “Iron Triangle” of American high society, along
with New York and the Hamptons. First on the list was Sea Island, Ga.,
with Maui second. The Hamptons were third. [Palm
