Boca Raton Overview

Boca Raton is a peaceful, affluent community on the southeast coast of Florida, about half an hour from Ft. Lauderdale and a little over an hour from Miami. It is famous for its pink and yellow colored buildings.

Boca Raton is bordered by the ocean on the east (and route A1A), and the Everglades national park (route 441) on the west.

For many years Boca Raton was considered to be only a community for "snowbirds", that is to say either retirees or northerners who visit/live down south during the winter. However, Boca Raton has recently become a much more diversified family community. There is great opportunity for shopping, eating, and entertainment.

Boca Raton has its own small municipal airport, located on Airport road off of Glades Rd.

boca raton is a bicycle friendly community with bike paths along most major roads and along the beach.

Boca Raton's residents, which are primarily the elderly, are very kind.
