Boca Raton, FL

About Boca RatonLong a haven for the wealthy, Boca Raton has become a center for commerce, finance and technology while maintaining its “small-town” appeal. It is known for its visionary use of green space and parks.

One of the city's oldest unaltered wooden structures, built in 1912 with timber found on the beach, now houses the Boca Raton Children's Museum, 498 Crawford Blvd. The museum features interactive exhibits highlighting history, science and the arts and humanities. Storytelling sessions are offered Tues.-Sat. at 11; art classes take place at 11:30. Special exhibits also are offered in summer; phone (561) 368-6875.

The Gulf Stream comes closest to the Florida shore at Boca Raton, making the climate ideal for sports and recreation.
