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.
