Plan a Luxurious Vacation to Boca Raton
By Kara Franker
Where to Stay
Many savvy travelers know about Waldorf Astoria's luxurious Boca Raton Resort & Club, famous for its history, grandeur and elegance. Designed by legendary architect Addison Mizner, the resort is brimming with an impressive list of amenities and activities, including an award-winning spa, championship golf and tennis, gorgeous beach club and expansive marina.
Another choice, Waterstone Resort & Marina, offers a contemporary, chic atmosphere unique to the conventional Boca Raton area. Situated on the Intracoastal Waterway, the hotel brings an adventurous edge to the quiet city with a variety of water recreations including, sailing, kayaking, scuba diving and paddle boarding.
Where to Dine
One of the most romantic restaurants in Boca Raton, Casa D'Angelo represents the pinnacle of fine Italian dining. Italian-born chef and restaurateur Angelo Elia offers an artful combination of premium ingredients, masterful preparation and superb fine wine selections.
Peer out of the floor-to-ceiling windows at The Blue, a restaurant located at the Boca Raton Resort & Club, and take in the panoramic bird’s eye vantage point of the Intracoastal waterway and Atlantic Ocean below. Perched atop the 27th floor of the historic hotel, the view is a showstopper. And so is the food.
Boca Landing and Waterstone Bar & Grill at Waterstone Resort & Marina offers vibrant fare made using locally sourced ingredients and sustainable fresh seafood, while boaters enjoy dining service right on board with the only "dock to dine" option in the area.
Where to Play
Every year, The Schmidt Family Centre for the Arts at Mizner Park, presents the Festival of the Arts BOCA in March. Promoting arts in the Palm Beach County community, the festival features the finest in classical music, jazz, dance, film and authors.
Visit the glittery Town Center at Boca Raton shopping mall, with more than 200 upscale and elite specialty shops.
