Florida's playground for the rich and famous can be amazingly inexpensive and accessible. We show you Palm Beach for the rest of us.
During the week and on Saturdays, put your wallet away--matches are free. Pull your car right up to the field, and set up your tailgate spread just feet from the action. Sure, you will see your share of Mercedes-Benzes, but they're parked alongside VW Beetles, ramshackle pickup trucks, and soccer-mom-friendly SUVs. Spectators (many of whom are players) are more than happy to initiate a novice and create a new fan. The atmosphere mirrors that of a kickball tournament--zero pretension.
