Boca Raton has long been a retirement destination for New Yorkers, but now more than ever the Palm Beach County city has even more to offer active Baby Boomers, Gen Xers, and Millennials who are ready to say good-bye to winters and leave Long Island behind.

With a population under 100,000, 16,000 acres of parkland and trails, and 4 miles of public beach still in its natural state, Boca Raton offers the best of life in Florida.  Add to those natural advantages the great neighborhoods, growing economy, sports and leisure activities, and you can easily see why Boca is no longer just for retirees.


Lots of Great Housing Options

If you’re tired of owning a single-family home on Long Island and want to start your new life in Florida in a condo, Boca Raton offer many options.  From oceanfront, high-rise condos to elegant condos on a golf course, you’ll be able to find a condominium home to meet your needs and get you started on the lifestyle you’ve always dreamed of.

If, on the other hand, you want a single-family home in a more traditional neighborhood, Boca has many to choose from.  You’ll also be happy to know that the tax rate is low and the schools are excellent.


Advantages of Economic Growth

Boca Raton is a growing tech startup and tourism hub, with new jobs, new resorts, new restaurants, and new shopping areas opening all the time.   Recent economic growth has, in fact, brought enhanced vitality to the city that people moving from Long Island will appreciate.

For example, Park Place/Altis, a new shopping and residential plaza, has numerous retail shops and restaurants.  Mizner Park, a Mediterranean revival lifestyle center in downtown Boca Raton, also features many wonderful restaurants and shops as well as The Centre for the Arts, which includes an amphitheater, Museum of Art, and Carré d’artistes featuring over 600 emerging artists.

New hotels and resorts add yet another dimension to the entertainment and leisure time possibilities in Boca.  The luxe resort, Mandarin Oriental, with a golf course, spa, club lounge and rooftop restaurant, will, for example, soon provide resort-style living opportunities.  Meanwhile, the updated Boca Raton Resort and Club has a FlowRider machine, renovated golf course, and many themed restaurants.  The Wyndham Hotel also features a fabulous farm-to-table restaurant.


Outdoor Living

The housing options and growing economy are great, but the main draw of Boca Raton is the climate and opportunities for enjoying being outside.  Boca has four miles of undeveloped beach land, one of the longest natural beaches in Florida.  This stretch of beach also includes Red Reef Park, a wonderful snorkeling area.  In addition, there’s a refurbished boardwalk at Gumbo Limbo Nature Center from which you have outstanding views of the ocean and Intracoastal Waterway.

In addition to the beautiful beach, Boca Raton has numerous parks and trails.  If you enjoy hiking, biking, or taking leisurely strolls, you can find the perfect place to enjoy being outdoors.
