Since coming to Boca in 1978 (my father brought the infamous Waterboggan Waterslide to Lighthouse Point during that time) we have enjoyed all that Boca has to offer. Amazing beaches, shopping, restaurants, schools, friendships, charitable organizations, business and lifestyle!
Downtown Boca is a 344-acre, pedestrian-friendly district of shops, businesses, restaurants and living spaces. It was here that famed 1920’s architect Addison Mizner established his signature Spanish-Mediterranean style. The magnificent Mizner Park, one of the earliest successful mixed-use developments in the United States, was named after the famous architect, known for traveling between Boca and Palm Beach with his mischievous pet monkey, Jonnie Brown.
WHAT SETS OUR DOWNTOWN APART?
•Downtown Boca received not one, but 2! International Downtown Association (IDA) Merit Awards for our annual Brazilian Beat Festival and our Pedestrian Promenade and Sanborn Square Arches
•The American Planning Association named Plaza Real one of its Top 10 Great Public Spaces in the US
•Movoto called Boca Raton one of the Top Five Best Dressed Small Cities (number two, to be precise)
•The League of American Bicyclists recognized us among just 11 other cities in Florida as one of the great Bicycle Friendly Communities
We’re home to a full menu of annual festivals, from the weeklong Festival of the Arts in the spring to the spicy, sensual Brazilian Beat each fall. More than a dozen cultural attractions and art galleries call Downtown Boca home, including the Boca Raton Historical Society & Museum, the Boca Museum of Art, and Mizner Park Amphitheater.
With an ongoing commitment to beautiful aesthetics, promising business opportunities, and pedestrian-friendly initiatives, it’s easy to see why we are Boca’s beauty spot. Downtown Boca, come early and stay late.
