The Winter White House Of JFK: The Kennedy’s Getaway in Palm Beach

A home away from home is just the thing the president of the United States needs. Donald Trump has his home away from home at Mar-A-Lago in Florida. President John F. Kennedy also had a getaway home on a sprawling Palm Beach estate that housed the famous family for three generations. While the beautiful mansion was the setting for warm family moments, it wasn’t free from secrets and scandal. Take a look inside the Kennedy compound in Palm Beach, Florida.

The Kennedy’s Home Away From Home

The Palm Beach, Florida mansion located at 1095 N. Ocean Blvd was a gathering place for the Kennedy’s for three generations. The home was first purchased by JFK’s father Joe Kennedy back in 1933 and remained in the family until 1995.

During his time as president, the home was known as the “winter White House” where Kennedy and his family would escape the cold winters of Washington D.C. and enjoy their time together on the water.
