Boca Raton, the second largest city in the Palm Beaches, is a community where history and innovation come together. Influenced by the notable architect, Addison Mizner, Boca Raton was built around an elegant Mediterranean Revival style that later grew into a vibrant city full of rich art and culture. From live concerts and international art exhibits to outdoor festivals and world-class museums, Boca Raton’s dynamic cultural scene offers unique experiences for all ages. Boca Raton has five miles of beautiful Atlantic coastline and 46 parks with 1,650 acres of recreational space to encourage a healthy and active lifestyle. One of the first cities in the U.S. to adopt a tree protection ordinance, the City of Boca Raton boasts landscapes with endless nature trails, green spaces and waterfront activities 1.
For a long period, Boca Raton has been associated with being a destination for retirees seeking a quiet place to reside. However, with a population totaling almost 300,000 residents, rest assured that there are families of all ages. As such Boca Raton also is credited with A rated schools, boasting over 22 primary and secondary schools combined. This includes the A.D. Henderson University School and FAU High School, which are on the Florida Atlantic University Campus. Additionally Boca Raton has 4 charter schools, almost 40 private schools of all grades, and 3 post-secondary schools (Lynn University, FAU, Palm Beach State College).
The city of Boca Raton, and its unincorporated area outside city limits cover a vast amount of space. This includes golf courses, museums, dining and entertainment, and of course the beaches. Whether its a family day at Patch Reef Park, Spanish River Beach, or Gumbo Limbo Nature Center; an evening in Mizner Park at the Amphitheatre for a concert; or a free outdoor yoga class every Saturday at Sanborn Square, there is always something that can be planned.
