Boynton Beach Reviews

178 reviews
All Categories
Boynton Beach has always been a place I call home, I found no problems with my surroundings till I opened my eyes. Although I do enjoy the convenience of having many stores in less than a miles radius, it does cater to criminality. If I ever need to go to the mall I always drive 30 minutes to Wellington, for our local mall is run down and not very safe. The people love to constantly argue and tend to be rude. The biggest highlights of my town is the movie theater and the abundance of food variety! Boynton Beach will always hold a certain place in my heart, but a little change of scenery would open my eyes to what the world really has to offer me.
Review Boynton Beach
Located just north of Delray Beach and south of Palm Beach, Boynton Beach offers visitors all varieties of seaside recreation, plus enticing shopping at the Boynton Beach Mall and downtown. The Boynton Beach Inlet provides nearly direct access to some of The Palm Beaches most beautiful coral and artificial reefs. And Boynton Beach’s OceanFront Park easily earns its reputation as one of South Florida’s most attractive beaches. Boynton Harbor Marina sports water activities for kids of all ages, as well as eco-adventures such as Everglades Day held at Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge. All of this making you hungry? Dig in at Boynton Beach dining options that run the gamut from casual to ultra-fine.
I have been a resident of palm beach county Florida for many many years. My son is a senior of Boynton Beach Community HS. He is in the graphic design academy and plays the saxophone and is a member of the marching, concert and jazz bands. We truly love the school and surrounding communities. Boynton Beach Florida is a great place to live, work, play, vacation and retire!
