Boca Raton

BocaRatonHarborS06AFamiliarly known to locals by its first name “Boca,” truly has it all. Beaches and golf courses; fine hotels and wondrous art museums (and the Festival of the Arts BOCA); jazz clubs and concerts at Mizner Park; the glittery Town Center at Boca Raton shopping mall, with 220 upscale and elite specialty shops; and, elsewhere around town, countless family-owned boutiques. And let’s not forget fine restaurants, some of the best in the south. After all, Boca is located in The Palm Beach and, more to the point, in the heart of Florida’s Atlantic Ocean Coast. Along those lines, give some thought to staying at the Boca Raton Resort & Club, one of the nation’s premier resort destinations.

Boca Beaches

imagesBoca Raton Florida’s East Coast is known for its most priceless treasure a two-mile stretch of lifeguard-protected beaches. This pristine beach area, isolated and serene, provides recreational use for the thousands who wish to spend time at the ocean or enjoying the various sand dunes spotted with sea oats and sea grapes.  Lifeguards “man” the beach 7 days a week, year-round, from 9am to 5pm. Three City parks—-Spanish River, Red Reef, and South Beach—-are connected to the miles of beaches and provide such amenities as playgrounds, restrooms, grills, and picnic tables.  A fourth park, South Inlet, managed by Palm Beach County,  is also located on Boca Raton’s oceanside.
