Boca Raton

Boca Raton, the name conjurs up images of the great south Florida lifestyle. There are the beaches, miles and miles of palm tree festooned beaches with the clear, warm waters of the Atlantic washing gently to shore. There are the golf course communities dotting the landscape with homes at every price point.

Incorporated in 1925, Boca Raton real estate is one of south Florida's oldest towns and is one of the largest in terms of population and land area stretching from the ocean to the Everglades. Boca Raton homes for sale encompass luxury, oceanfront condominiums rising into the sky along the beaches, waterfront estate homes along the Intracoastal with docks and direct ocean access, all the way to luxury club communities like St. Andrews where gated, estate homes run into the millions. And everything you can think of in-between. According to Forbes, Boca Raton has three of the ten most expensive gated communities in the U.S. The Royal Palm Yacht and Country Club holds the #1 spot.

Perhaps the most famous landmark is the Boca Raton Resort & Club built in 1926 by Addison Mizner. Mizner's architectural style would set the tone for decades to come. West of town, the Japanese established the Yamato Colony which today is home to the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens and is neighbors with the Butterfly Garden. Other cultural interests include the National Cartoon Museum, Boca Raton Museum of Art, the Caldwell Theatre Company and Town Center at Boca Raton. In the early 1970's, IBM built a massive complex here which was the birthplace of the IBM PC.

One reason for Boca's popularity is the weather. Annual average temperatures range from 68 to 85. Except for some summer rain, there is hardly a day that you can't get outside and enjoy the weather.

With its size, cultural diversity, ocean access and golf opportunities, if you are considering moving to south Florida, there will certainly be something of interest for you in Boca Raton.
