Culture & Commerce
Boynton Beach isn’t a small city, but it hasn’t suffered from the overdevelopment that has crowded its neighbors. It retains a small-town feel, and local shops and restaurants haven’t been pushed out to make way for luxury retail mini-malls. Fine dining and tasteful boutiques do exist here, but Boynton isn’t a place where you’ll valet park your Rolls-Royce at brunch. Instead, you’ll enjoy restaurants with no wait times, a range of stores that provide everything you need for comfortable living, and easy access to all the cultural richness of the Miami Metropolitan Area. The city hosts a Haunted Pirate Fest and Mermaid Splash every fall, but the same free-spirited party happens year-round in the restaurants and bars along the docks. The people who live here enjoy Boynton for what it is: a laid-back city with notable beaches and perfect Florida weather.
