In a big, bold headline on Tuesday, The New York Post proclaimed that Palm Beach County is “actually cool.”

The article was widely distributed by Palm Beach County tourism leaders, who heralded it as a major win for the region.

The article highlights several area attractions and boutique hotels, including the new 400-room Hilton West Palm Beach, which is set to open this week next to the Palm Beach County Convention Center.

It marks the second time this month that the county’s tourism industry has been in the national spotlight.  The Wall Street Journal this month ran a feature story about Delray Beach’s tourism offerings.
