Not Your Parents’ Boca Raton, It’s Even Better
Our tour of the Palm Beaches this winter takes Behind The Hedges to Boca Raton. Known for its golf courses, beaches and great shopping, it’s no wonder Boca is a favorite for snowbirds. We wanted to hear from those who know the lay of the land best, what makes this particular enclave so special. Who better to ask than some of the top real estate agents?

My husband Chuck and I moved to Boca from Boston 25 years ago and began our real estate career. Prior to the move, I was skeptical about living in Florida full-time while raising our children. After years of Florida bliss, I can honestly say it was the best move we ever made and we’ve never looked back. Boca Raton is so special. Of course, it’s known for its ritzy shopping mall, luxury Town Center and high-end restaurants, but here’s the secret: it’s also warm, friendly and fun! We got to raise our kids enjoying the outdoors — a long-forgotten experience these days — at Boca’s three pristine beaches, one of which is where I taught them how to snorkel as it has a man-made reef just yards offshore. The locals know Boca as a “city within a park” including 20-plus parks featuring sports fields and courts, water parks, boat launches, pet parks, skateboarding and more. Now that our kids are grown and we are empty nesters, we’re still enjoying all that Boca Raton has to offer — playing pickleball and getting a few rounds of golf in at the many public courts and courses across our beautiful city. All that said, whether you’re seeking luxury shopping, a five-star meal or a relaxing day at the beach or golf course, Boca Raton simply has it all!
