Get to know Boca Raton

Boca Raton is a vibrant community, full of golf and tennis, boating on the Intracoastal Waterway, and 2 miles of world-class, white-sand beaches. The restaurant scene rivals that of cities 10 times its size, and there’s a Rodeo Drive’s worth of luxury tucked into what might pass for a bedroom community anywhere else in the Miami suburbs. Like many South Florida cities, Boca Raton came to be through the vision of real estate developers, but Boca was lucky because town founder Addison Mizner was an architect. He had established a reputation with New York society and carried it to Palm Beach, then set his eyes on farmland to the south and printed fancy brochures to lure in residents. Though not much of his vision was realized, his aesthetic mindset has shaped the town ever since. Nearly a hundred years later, it’s more brochure-worthy than Mizner could have imagined.

Commerce & Culture

Boca Raton is a thriving little city that deserves its international reputation. You know the weather to expect — breezy, sunny, and occasionally sultry — and the town itself is as neat as a pin. There’s a real cohesion to both residential and commercial buildings, and tight zoning laws keep billboards from obscuring the sunsets, even if the same can’t be said for luxury high-rises. The townsfolk like their city clean and safe and have committed the resources to keeping streets, parks, green spaces, and infrastructure in top condition. There are hundreds of upscale shops in the town’s mall (one of the nicest in Florida) and dozens of boutiques in Mizner Park and other tony neighborhoods. Perhaps because they are out burning calories during the day, the locals support an amazing restaurant community and a refined if subdued nightlife. In the unlikely event you get bored of Boca, it’s convenient to everything happening between the Keys and the Treasure Coast.
