Boca Raton is a city in southern Palm Beach County, located between West Palm Beach to the north and Pompano Beach to the south. It has an affluent social community and high-income demographics. The Boca Raton area contains some of the best golf country club communities in Florida, as well as three of the top ten most expensive gated communities in the country. A popular year-round destination, the city's average winter high temperatures range from the 70s to mid-80s degrees Fahrenheit, while the average summer high temperatures range from the mid-80s to low-90s degrees Fahrenheit.
Boca Raton was the creation of renowned architect Addison Mizner, and much of the city's Spanish Colonial Revival and Mediterranean Revival architecture reflects this. Today, Boca Raton retains a strict development code, including the size and types of commercial buildings, building signs and advertisements. No car dealerships or billboards are permitted in the municipality, according to the city zoning code. This helps create an incredibly picturesque city facade.
Among the many attractions in Boca Raton is Mizner Park, a cultural center for southern Palm Beach County. Featuring a landscaped central park between the two main roads (collectively called Plaza Real), Mizner Park resembles a Mediterranean suburban town center, with a more contemporary look. It features many restaurants and shopping. It is also home to the Boca Raton Museum of Art.
Other attractions in Boca Raton include the Town Center at Boca Raton, the Boca Raton Children's Museum, the Gumbo Limbo Nature Center, Red Reef Beach and the Boca Raton Resort and Club. The city is served by the Palm Beach County School District, along with numerous private and parochial schools. The main campus of Florida Atlantic University is located in Boca Raton.
Boca Raton is easily accessible from the Palm Beach International Airport and the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. The smaller Boca Raton Airport is ideal for private aviation.
