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.
