Welcome to Boca Raton
Boca Raton…it starts with an inlet, that leads to a lake, adorned with a majestic hotel from a different era and then blossoms into a world of restaurants, shops, museums, the finest medical and hospital resources, to universities, sports, and music! Truly an amazing lifestyle for residents and visitors.
There are only a handful of inlets from Miami to Palm Beach and “Boca,” as it is called, has one of the true gems connecting the Atlantic Ocean to its residents. It also has the totally unique saltwater Lake Boca that salutes you as you come in and out by boat. This is where the pink-colored, architecturally rich, Grand Dame resort, The Boca Raton is situated with its cloistered look and iconic tower standing guard as its sister Beach Club is perched at the ocean inlet.
Some people will share the history of Boca Raton that is quietly as notable as Palm Beach. Others might talk about the ’60s to ’80s when Boca West was a large part of its identity. But Boca Raton has reached its next renaissance. The Intracoastal and canal homes, with their yachts and boats, are such a part of the draw. Then there is Mizner Park, Royal Palm Center and the emerging restaurant row along Palmetto Park that brings 5 Star dining and shopping.
Let's also not forget the beautiful, pristine beaches and the park protected stretches that run for miles up the coast. Residents are proud that sand, sky, and ocean come together in an amazing way here in Boca. This helped Boca to be ranked in the Top 10 USA Beaches and the “Number 5 Beach Town” in America by one of the leading research sources nationally.
Two new items that will soon add a new dimension! One is the new Mandarin Oriental resort which will be the 5 Star hotel group’s second in Florida and 6th in the United States. It will create an in-town beacon for Boca Raton, with a spectacular hotel, spa, residences, double rooftop pool experiences, a half-mile of luxury shopping and dining, and even a new Jack Nicklaus championship golf course.
Then add Sir Richard Branson and his Virgin railway known as Brightline. This is a Miami to Orlando high-speed rail service that feels more like Virgin Air than a railroad. There is a new mini terminal (aka station) in Boca so residents to easily zip to Miami or Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach or points farther north.
