Boca Raton vacation rentals

Boca Raton—a hot property

The opportunity to live the high life on Florida’s fashionable Atlantic coast is a major perk for guests in Boca Raton vacation rentals. Finding your perfect home from home is just the start of your dream vacation. The moment you set foot on the sugar-sand beach or dip your toe in the sparkling ocean, you’ll be hooked. Sun-seekers and jet-setters have been hotfooting it to this stylish resort since the 1920s, when the visionary architect Addison Mizner began constructing the grand hotels and mansions that were to transform a South Florida backwater into one of Florida’s hottest properties.

One man’s vision of Boca Raton

Addison Mizner’s ambitious vision can still be glimpsed in the buildings in downtown Boca Raton that survive from his heyday. Many of these are now listed on the National Register of Historic Places as prime examples of Mediterranean Revival design. The architect’s original administrative offices have been converted into an upscale shopping mall. A self-guided walking tour of Mizner Park offers an introduction to his unmistakable design style in a new development of restaurants and cultural venues, while the opulent Boca Raton Resort & Club is an iconic oceanfront landmark, known as the “pink hotel” for its flamboyant color wash.

Boca Raton Museum of Art—a creative diversion

A visit to the Boca Raton Museum of Art makes an interesting diversion on your walk through Mizner Park. The permanent collection displays works by many of the greatest America artists of the 19th and 20th centuries, as well as paintings by European masters including Degas, Matisse, and Picasso. West African art and modern sculpture are also represented, along with a rotating program of temporary exhibitions. The “Music in the Museum” series presents classical music concerts, while art workshops introduce children and young adults to creative techniques.

Boca Raton feels the heat

In common with its Palm Beach County neighbors, Boca Raton benefits from a famously benevolent climate. The warm, sunny weather continues throughout the year, with the temperature seldom dropping below the high 70s. Even in winter, Boca Raton vacation rentals with a pool and sun deck are the first to be snapped up. Thunderstorms are most likely during the hottest months of June through September, refreshing the tropical plants and trees that thrive in the shady city parks and landscaped gardens of Boca Raton vacation rentals near the beach.

Boca Raton—a protective home for sea turtles

The Gumbo Limbo Environmental Complex takes its name from the native tree that abounds throughout the site. This natural park encompasses 20 acres of protected barrier island, featuring indoor and outdoor aquariums, a boardwalk trail and observation tower, a butterfly garden, and a museum. The island’s sandy beaches provide ideal nesting sites for sea turtles, and Gumbo Limbo’s long-established conservation and rehabilitation program has worked wonders to protect these endangered creatures. A scenic stroll from downtown Boca Raton vacation rentals through South Beach Park leads you to the park’s oceanfront boardwalk.
