City Profile: Boca Raton

By: VISIT FLORIDA staff

ADD TO FAVORITES
Watersports abound in Boca Raton, thanks to the Gulf Stream and a variety of reefs and wrecks.

The Gulf Stream weaves its way closer to Boca Raton than any place else on the Florida coast. Because of these balmy breezes, Boca Raton is an ideal place for all the fun of Florida recreation. Watersports in the area include drift fishing, sailing, water-skiing and surfing. Scuba diving is also popular along these sunny shores where a variety of reefs and wrecks hug the coastline. For the less adventurous, the beaches here are ideal for simply idling a day away. Nearby Deerfield Beach offers wide beaches and a quiet atmosphere.

Perhaps it was Boca Raton's ideal climate that first drew the wealthy to these shores. A haven for the affluent since the turn of the century, Boca Raton blends culture with small town appeal. Polo matches are played regularly in the winter and the cultural events calendar is packed year round.
