West Boca Raton, great for families 4 rating By copassio ( Dec 03, 2016) We live in the unincorporated part of town, west side of the city near the Everglades. Great school atomophere, very little bullying going on. Most teachers at the middle school where my son goes to are willing to reach out and help our son who has mild Aspergers and some learnin ...Read More g issues. Our subdivision has nice neighbors and kids play outside together safely. Grocerly shopping are convinient, as are inexpensive restaurants, could use more varities of them though. We have been living here for 5 years, from the cold Chicago. People say it's humid and hot here, not quite true. Only June thru September are very humid, the rest of the year very pleasant. Summer temperature is also lower than Chicago. People in South Florida are very active and health conscious. Many communities have tennis programs for middle age and above residents who are working full or part time. About half an hour drive to the beach, very peaceful here. Read Less
Can't wait to leave 2 rating By moveaway ( Jun 01, 2014) I've been living in Boca Raton for over 10 years and my take on Boca, is that if ALL you're looking for is warm weather year round, and chain store shopping, and NOTHING ELSE matters, then Boca is the place for you.

The Towne Centre Mall has everything you could want, and there
...Read More are dozens of other malls in South Florida, as well as chain restaurants and plaza's on every corner. During the winter months, it rarely goes below 70 degrees, and it never snows.

Most of the people are transplants from NY (Long Island, Queens, Brooklyn, etc.), NJ, Philly, or Boston. I seldom meet anyone from the mid-west or western parts of the county, and there are tons of Hispanics (many of whom are not here legally). Often times when I am out and about, everyone around me is speaking Spanish. Overall, I find the people here to be extremely uneducated with a very poor work ethic.

It's 100% car-centric, and as far as the age range, my parents are in their 70's and they are the norm. It's not uncommon to go to a restaurant and see that everyone there is at least 70 or older. It's definitely NOT a vibrant town full of career oriented professionals and exciting nightlife, so if you're single and that is what you're looking for, I would really think twice about moving here.

Boca is most retirees and families. Many of whom are snow birds who are here just to escape the cold, play golf, and go shopping.

I am leaving soon for Denver and I cannot wait. Read Less
Why Do I Visit Boca Raton, FL? 4 rating By Anonymous ( Jul 29, 2010) I visit the city of Boca Raton on a regular basis, as I live just a few miles from there. The streets are very well maintained and lined with palm trees. I love the laid-back, friendly atmosphere that is always present in Boca Raton.

...Read More actions to see in Boca Raton such as biking, hiking, sunbathing, fishing, watersports, fine dining, concerts, museums, art galleries, golf, shopping and much more. Relaxing on their gorgeous Atlantic coast beaches is a regular activity for me. My favorite thing to do though is shop. Mizner Park, The Royal Palm Plaza, and The Town Center Mall offer a huge variety of shops, boutiques, restaurants and events to choose from. The nightlife here is not the greatest, but there are bars and lounges for late night entertainment.

Boca Raton is a community oriented city, making sure to keep their neighborhoods beautiful and safe for everyone. Clean streets and fresh warm air are the norm rather than the exception. When all is said and done, Boca Raton is a fabulous place for both residents and visitors. Read Less
