    Boca Raton’s Top Ten Dog Days of Summer Must Do’s!

    As summer in Boca Raton slowly comes to a close it doesn’t mean you have to pack up your backpack and hide away your swimsuits! There are a ton of cool things to do around town to wrap up your summer break in style! Here are #SoooBoca’s Top Summer Picks for staying cool in August!

    Take a step into time and check out one of Boca’s oldest landmarks — the original City Hall where you can find the Boca Raton Historical Society. Built in 1927 this long standing building has seen #SoooBoca grow into one of South Florida’s largest and most popular travel destinations. Between the hours of 10am and 4pm you can catch a guided tour around the hall or you can explore on your own. Curious about the history of not only Boca but IBM…the rooms are full of fun facts and history changing items for you to learn from and see.  This sweet piece of history is a prize possession among locals. By the way…if you love wine and food the Boca Bacchanal is one of the Historical Society’s signature events!

     

    Weekends in Mizner Park are always a blast thanks especially with the variety of events always happenin’ in this popular downtown hot spot! Grab a drink with your posse around the park or bring the family down for a night that all can enjoy. This family friendly atmosphere is a great way to shake up the usual summer routine!

    Keeping it within the Downtown Boca family make sure to stop by the Boca Raton Museum  — with a beautiful mix of visual and fine arts you can stroll these gallery’s all day, while finding something new at every corner! Lose yourself in the art and sculpture while visiting this gem — daily tours are available so get your Picasso on! And don’t forget about the Boca Childrens Museum the states first kids museum with tons of classes and events throughout the year!

     

    If you prefer to spend a bit of time in nature be sure to check out Boca Raton’s most impressive nature trails and rehabilitation center for sea turtle. Gumbo Limbo has been a proud resident of Boca Raton for over three decades and is an important part of the community! Get up close and personal with many plants and marine life — you can even take a night tour to try and sneak a peek at the mama turtles leaving their nests in hopes of plentiful hatchlings. Feeling like you want to adopt a turtle? Well have it with the Adopt a Sea Turtle program!

     

    You don’t have to take the treacherous hike up to mouse town in order to get a little water park thrills out of your system! Right up the road Coconut Cove Waterpark is the perfect spot to splash around and get a few butterflies in your tummy. This park offers a full interactive water playground, lazy river and four giant water slides. Plus a full concession and meeting rooms!

    A stop by the newly renovated Sugar Sand Park should be high up on your list of summer to-do’s, this one of a kind program not only is a ton of fun for the kids but it is full of education, sporting areas and rent-able pavilions. The carousel is a fun spot for a photo shoot and see if you can out run a cheetah on the playground! Make your summer complete and invite all of your friends to the park for an end of the summer Hooray!

     

     

     

    Travel to a different country right before your eyes by visiting a local favorite — Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens. Take a stroll among the Roji-en and admire the beautiful gardens, grab a bite to eat or gawk at the lovely galleries and spend your day immersed in a culture that is truly connected to South Florida! Don’t forget the amazing events like Sushi and Stroll and the Lantern Festival during the year.

     

    For a fun and different cinema experience iPic is a great way to enjoy the newest flicks in style! Grab a tub of popcorn and a glass of wine or upgrade to the full service experience and relax in style! Big cushy recliners are the perfect way to make you feel right at home while you are waited on hand and foot! Not taking in a movie but the kids are…or maybe you just want to meet friends for brunch…check out Tanzy for a full out fabulous dining experience. Something for everyone!

    For a more adult concert extravaganza you can pop on over to the Funky Biscuit! This cool bar/venue has been jamming out around Boca for years and is always a fun spot to meet your friends! Grab a drink, unwind and listen to the songs of the evening. The “biscuit” has the traditional to the eclectic in its repertoire of revolving talent whether at happy hour or a full out concert experience this is truly a “gem” in Downtown Boca at Royal Palm Plaza.

     

    And when it is just too hot to be outside run on over to Town Center mall grab a few new items and relax in Boca Raton’s true Allison in Wonderland playground! World class shopping, restaurants not to mention some epic people watching. From the big boys like Nordstrom and Bloomies to the fan faves like Lilly Pulitzer and Urban Outfitters there truly is something for everyone at “the mall”.

     I’ve had a love affair with Boca Raton since I moved here in 1978 and I am not alone! This city is one of the great loves of my life along with my children, my husband and my dogs. I, also, love the color “pink” which conveniently is one of Boca’s signature colors, and, did you know that the color pink happens to be universal for love ? Isn’t that so romantic, which is so Boca.

    Enjoy colorful sunrises, beautiful walks on pristine beaches, date nights at Mizner Park in Downtown Boca, or you can head over to the original “pink plaza” , The Royal Palm Place! Love is always in the air, especially, around Valentines Day, in the city I call my home…beautiful and fabulous Boca Raton.
