“Life is a beach in Boca Raton”
From the days of 18th Century Spanish Gallions to the 1920’s when Addison Mizner built the Boca Raton Resort Club, Boca Raton has long been recognized as one of south Florida’s most significant destination cities. It is a vibrant business community including Fortune 500 companies, small business and high tech start ups.
In Addition to its progressive business climate, and lack of personal income tax, it also offers a rare quality of life with its great climate, (average temperature 74.7 degrees), clean environment and a reputation for planned residential communities.
Long known for its fine restaurants and shopping, as well as its “country club” lifestyle, Boca Raton is also garnering a great reputation as a center for higher learning.
The total area of the city is 27.14 square miles, unincorporated area 70 square miles, beach frontage is 5 miles. There are 1,087 acres of parks and the median age of the populace is 42.1.
Boca is just minutes away from 3 international airports: West Palm Beach International, Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International and Miami International. There is a private airport in Boca Raton, for those of you who like to fly small airplanes. There are also three sea Ports: Port Everglades (Ft. Lauderdale), Port of Miami, and Port of West Palm Beach, from where you can make your dream vacations come true by sailing in one of the many luxury cruise liners to almost any where in the Americas and the Antilles.
Being the southern most city in Palm Beach County, Boca Raton is in the unique position to offer the best of both worlds: Small city living and easy reach to the big city amenities of West Palm Beach, Ft. Lauderdale and Miami South Beach. If You are looking for paradise, I think you will find the greater Boca Raton area of South Florida to be as close as it gets.
