Get to know Boca Raton

Boca Raton is a vibrant community full of golf and tennis, boating on the Intracoastal Waterway, and two 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. Mizner 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 Mizner's vision was unrealized for the most part, his aesthetic mindset has shaped the town ever since. Nearly a hundred years later, Boca is more brochure-worthy than Mizner could have imagined.

Boca Raton Commerce & Culture

Boca Raton is a thriving little city deserving of its international reputation. The weather is what you’d expect — breezy and sunny — while the town itself is neat as a pin. There’s a cohesive feel to residential and commercial buildings, and tight zoning laws prevent billboards from obscuring the sunsets. Townsfolk have committed to keeping streets, parks, green spaces, and infrastructure in top condition. There are hundreds of upscale shops in the town’s mall (one of Florida’s most pleasant) and dozens of boutiques in Mizner Park and other tony neighborhoods. Perhaps because they are 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, its location is convenient to everything happening between the Keys and the Treasure Coast.
