I have really enjoyed growing up in this city, it has so much to offer! My parents have always made sure to enroll us in excellent schools in the area that have been very beneficial with our education. I would definitely suggest others to move here, it is very diverse and has friendly neighborhoods. If you like quite cities, this city will be great for you, we do not have a downtown so you will not have to worry about loud noises and crowded, busy areas. This city has treated me right since I was a little kid and I hope it will treat you and your families right. I hope my review has contributed to your consideration of moving here! :-)
Boynton Beach has been the best since we moved from Broward County. The area is very clean, and the people seem to be very nice compared with Broward County. All the Target, Publix and Walmart seem very clean. Restaurants are always busy and seem to be serving based on Palm Beach County healthy guidelines. I do not like the public schools in the area, but all the public schools seem to be very nice. We love to go fishing and go to parks in the surrounding areas. Boynton Beach has a calendar that shows the residents all the different events that will be happening during the different months and most of them are free. Downtown Boynton is very nice and clean and the environment by the beach is always very nice. They are working on the Boynton Beach library and I'm sure it will be very nice. The Children's Museum is so nice, very educational and even though it has a charge is worth the money and the membership comes with some good perks for discounted classes.
