Boca Raton

The city of Boca Raton in Palm Beach CountyFlorida began with the land boom of the 1920s and the dreams of renowned architect Addison Mizner. The "at the time" small, sleepy agricultural community with a tropical climate was envisioned as a haven of luxury homes and resort living. Mizner may be best known for designing the iconic Spanish/Moorish-style Cloister Inn now the Boca Resort and Club and known as the "pink hotel". In 1967, IBM opened a massive manufacturing and office complex in Boca Raton, welcoming an era of growth that continues today. 




World-class shopping can be found at Town Center at Boca Raton and at the outdoor shopping and dining center Mizner Park, the city's downtown cultural center. You'll find plenty of dining options here, from casual to elegant. The arts are very highly regarded as well: The city's many well-known and well-funded cultural institutions include the Boca Raton Museum of Art, Boca Raton Children's Museum, the University Gallery at Florida Atlantic University and the Boca Raton Historical Society Museum. Summer concerts happen at the Centre for Arts in Mizner Park, and residents enjoy performances at the Caldwell Theatre Company and the Boca Ballet Theatre. 




Of course, the two-mile stretch of protected beaches and parks along Boca's eastern shore are among South Florida's best, notably Red Reef Park, where snorkeling from the shore can bring divers to a living reef without the expense of renting a boat. Also in the 20-acre park is Gumbo Limbo, an environmental education center.
