10 Reasons to Love Living in Boca

Posted on: February 12, 2020

Boca Raton Florida Aerial View

Everyone is talking about Boca Raton, Florida. Its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean is just as appealing as its great weather, and plenty of other things as well. So what makes Boca Raton so great to live in anyways? Ask the residents, and they might tell you…

Lovely Location
Boca Raton is in a great spot. It’s roughly 12 minutes to Delray Beach, 20 minutes from Fort Lauderdale, and 30 minutes from West Palm Beach. Whether for work or for play, residents of Boca Raton can reach these great cities with little effort. Three large international airports also allow residents access to nearly any point in the world.

Awesome Activities
No matter what you like to do, Boca Raton has it. Try one of the hiking trails that run through the parks here, or visit an art gallery to find a work by a great artist. Sample some great dishes, or enjoy lying back and relaxing. The only thing that you’ll have a hard time with is finding space on your calendar for everything you want to try.

Delicious Dining

Boca Raton is on the edge of a culinary revolution. From poke to Persian, you can find nearly any cuisine here, at any time. Down Glades Road is The Capital Grille, famous for its steaks. The experimental Six Tables serves a five course tasting menu with alternative takes on classic dishes. Any night can be the best night to try something new when you live in Boca Raton.

Wonderful Weather

Boca Raton has an average of 231 sunny days per year, and an average temperature range from 61 to 89 degrees Fahrenheit. This means that residents have plenty of time to enjoy getting out and exploring beautiful South Florida. Whether that’s through visiting a local preserve, boating the waterways or enjoying outdoor shopping is up to them.

Beauteous Beaches

There’s no way that anyone could live in Florida without visiting the beach. From Red Reef Park to South Inlet Park, residents have their pick of sand and shoreline to play on, swim in, or explore. Kick back and enjoy the great weather on a Boca beach – you won’t regret it!

Special Shopping

If there’s anything that Boca Raton is known for, it’s the shopping! The famed Town Center at Boca Raton is unparalleled, with stores such as Cartier, Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Tesla having residence there. Shoppers in search of lavish goods and services can also make their way to Mizner Park, an outdoor shopping mall known for offerings such as J. McLaughlin and Kendra Scott. Lucky shoppers might even see a live performance at nearby Mizner Park Amphitheater.

Compelling Colleges

Boca Raton is proud to host Florida Atlantic University’s main campus, where learning and culture collide. The college is consistently hosting great live shows and programs on their stages. They also have Living Room Theaters nearby, which is a movie theater that screens independent films. Local residents love attending some of the classes that are available to the public through FAU’s Lifelong Learning Program. Furthermore, the influx of talented students that are available for work means that it’s never hard for residents of Boca Raton to find hardworking staff to fill positions for their businesses.

Engaging Entertainment

It’s easy to find great live entertainment in Boca Raton. The Wick Theater and Costume Museum puts on live shows while also letting guests explore the costumes that made theater history. The Funky Biscuit also has a rotation of musicians, from local performers to travelling shows.

A Busy and Fun Social Calendar

There’s always something to do at Boca Raton. The holiday season is rung in with the annual Holiday Boat Parade, where participants compete to outshine each other by decorating their boats with lights and collecting toys for Toys for Tots. Downtown Boca Raton also hosts the Boca Raton Art Show come November, where attendees can see crafts and creative work by artists from all over.

An Amenity rich lifestyle at St. Andrews Country Club

One thing that Boca Raton is famous for are its country clubs. One in particular stands out: St. Andrews Country Club. The amenity rich lifestyle that this club offers allows residents to keep busy, no matter the season. They’ll practice with golf professionals at the Golf Performance Center, or meet with friends for a meal at the Clubhouse. The Club is always hosting events, too, so residents can attend a live music performance, travel to another state, or even across the globe, or enjoy a tasting menu.

For many, it’s hard to resist the allure of Boca Raton, Florida. The South Florida locale combines the best of small town life with big city attractions, enveloping its residents in a world of art and culture. Restaurants such as the renowned La Ferme, Ke’e Grill, and Prezzo abound. Chefs are encouraged to play with flavor and sensation in order to create the next great dish. Boca Raton lives in a harmonious relationship with the area’s flora and fauna as well. Residents of this town often rejuvenate at the white sand beaches that line East Boca. Many of them enjoy the solitude that is offered at spots such as Pondhawk Natural Area. Once choked over with invasive plant species, the area was cleared of all harmful vegetation and restored to its proper nature. Guests can walk down the boardwalk and watch as the environment changes from scrubland to wetland. Those who are paying attention might even spot a gopher tortoise or hawk. Once finished absorbing the best things that Boca Raton can offer, they return to the best spot on earth – St. Andrews Country Club.

St. Andrews Country Club, a resident-only private golf and country club, is located in upscale Boca Raton, Florida near world-class shops, superb dining, cultural attractions and gorgeous area beaches. Its distinctions include a “Distinguished Club of the World” and a “Top Ten Healthiest Clubs in America,” and its world-class amenities make life a permanent vacation. When members drive in the gates of this private community, they know that they’ll be experiencing the finest dining, amenities, and living offered in South Florida, if not in the entire country. Members take time to meet with friends and neighbors at the 125,000 square foot Clubhouse, with its expansive spaces and dazzling social opportunities. Here is where the Club hosts many of its holiday events, casual soirees, and galas.

Just as stunning as the recently renovated Clubhouse is the Club’s two golf courses, designed by Arnold Palmer and Tom Fazio II for the most intrepid golfers. Members often meet friends here for casual games, or visit the Golf Performance Center to utilize staff’s knowledge and to improve their game. The Club’s offerings of clinics and private lessons let members learn new skills and build upon older ones, in order to play their best game possible. St. Andrews Country Club also offers 14 clay tennis courts, one stadium court, and two pickleball courts for the pleasure of tennis and pickleball players. The expert tennis staff overseen by Aaron Krickstein also holds private lessons and group clinics. Those looking to build upon their strength can visit the completely remodeled and expanded Fitness Center, and take advantage of its cardio and weight machines, its personal trainers, and its multiple exercise classes. Afterwards, they can cool off at the Aquatic Center, with its open and shaded cabanas, its Jr. Olympic pool, its Activity Pool, and its Adult Plunge Pool. Those hoping to relax with a spa treatment would do well to visit the Spa & Salon at St. Andrews Country Club, and partake of a Warm Stone Massage or Silky Body Polish Exfoliation.

With only 730 families living in the private, low-density community, the custom estate homes are all unique. Home prices average $1.8M, many offering lake and golf views. To see currently available estate homes that are for sale, click here.
