My family and I visited Boynton Beach Florida in the spring of 2011, and had a wonderful time on our trip. The weather was absolutely wonderful and the beaches were clean and well maintained. We stayed at the Hampton Inn at Boynton Beach, and although there was nothing spectacular about the hotel, the rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable, the breakfast in the morning was perfect for my kids, and the hotel had a nice pool.
There were a lot of outdoor activities for the whole family to do along the beach from banana boat rides to snorkling that kept the family entertained. There were many great seafood restaurants in the area, most of which looked out over the ocean. However, Zaza's Fresh Mediterranean Restaurant was truly the best place we ate at during our stay. The food was flavorful and departed from the normal fish and chips entrees most of the seafood restaurants served. Overall, while Boynton Beach wasn't the most exotic vacation destination, our family had a great time and no complaints whatsoever.
If you like the beach, warm weather, sand, hanging outdoors and chilling with friends then go to Boynton Beach! I went there last year in June, and had a great time - there is so much to do! The beach is clean, the sand is soft and the water is perfect.
The food in Boynton Beach is great - if you have a chance to go the Purple Lotus Kava Bar, then go! It is West Palm Beach, which is only a 10 minute drive at most. There is so much to do in Florida in general, and we saved a lot on hotels being 30 minutes away from Delray, West Palm Beach, Lake Worth and Boca Raton.
The Loxahatchee National Wildlife Park is something that nature lovers will enjoy. You can see the Florida Everglades, and I even saw a alligator. The beach is nice and sandy, not too crowded and you can rent gear nearby to snorkel, surf, and do some water sports. You can even purchase a ticket aboard the the Seamist III, and go fishing for around $40.00 per person.
I had a great time in Boynton Beach... make sure you rent a car and visit the nearby cities, because its worth it!
