The Kennedy Bunker was built to accommodate President John F. Kennedy and his family and staff if they had been in Palm Beach during a nuclear attack.  The fallout shelter, buried 12 feet underground, was just minutes away from the Kennedy compound. It's on Peanut Island, near the Port of Palm Beach.
