Boca Raton Reviews

165 reviews
All Categories
When living in Boca Raton most people tend to think of mansions, fancy cars and expensive living. But honestly living in Boca is a great! You always have the nicest florida weather with an abundance of palm trees, local parks for children to play, and great plazas with plenty of little shops. The beaches in Boca are also amazingly clean and beautiful. Boca is also home to a few celebrities such as Adam Sandler, Ariana Grande, and even Jon Bon Jovi. Another thing about Boca is you don't have to be a celebrity to feel like one in Boca. Boca is also really well known for its health and fitness there are plenty of golf course, tennis courts and even several fitness locations. You would just have to take a trip to Boca to enjoy everything Im telling you!
Unfortunately I have more that I dislike about my hometown than I enjoy. The only thing I really loved was the beach. Boca has beautiful beaches with crystal blue waters and cloudless skies on good days which happen quite often year round, and attract everyone and their mother during the long summer days. However, there is nothing for high school students to do around here without spending money or doing something illegal, and it is being rapidly over developed. Boca has become increasingly more attractive to people over the years which has lead to the demand of more places to live. All of the apartments are being built on top of each other and the continuously increasing population makes tons of traffic downtown and on the interstate.
Boca Raton is an influential town with thousands of individuals whom obtain wealth. In my opinion, the driving situation here is very dangerous. Our town is populated generally with an older crowd of people. Being a 18 year old in high school, I have had several near death experiences with driving behind an older individual. These individuals either cannot see over the stealing wheel, or just are dazing off not paying attention. If I were to change an experience of the town of Boca Raton, I would enforce a law that all elders over at least 55 should retake their driving tests. This may sound ridiculous, but I have lost several people in my life and almost lost my sister and my own life due to an elder person not having the correct control in an automobile.
