Boca Raton is an absolutely beautiful place to live and build a life! It has beautiful beaches, and parks, and many wonderful museums. It is easily one of the cleanest towns in the state of Florida. In addition to its cleanliness, it is hands down the safest place I have ever lived! Not to mention the weather is ideal for an active person like myself to get outside to exercise. It is a town best suited to older individuals and families, however it is ever changing and is becoming a more dynamic place for young people to study, explore, live and enjoy!

Boca Raton is a city that is up and moving. I believe it is the heart of South Florida. It is in between all of the action; just 45 minutes from West Palm Beach and 45 minutes from the nightlife action, Miami. I believe there is definitely an older population and more of a snowbird population during the Winter months. Needless to say, there is always somewhere to go or something to do! Living more East has many advantages of being closer to the beach, closer to activities, festivals and restaurants/shops. I love Boca Raton and highly recommend it to someone who likes the hustle and bustle!
Love it here. Amazing weather, great shops and best food around. I’ve lived here my whole life and wouldn’t want to be anywhere else! Even when I’m on vacation, I miss home because it’s so much fun! The beach, the mall, downtown, what more could you want?
