Boca Raton is a beautiful city in South Florida, bordered by Delray Beach, Highland Beach and Deerfield Beach. It is at the southern tip of Palm Beach County.
The main campus of the Florida Atlantic University is situated in Boca. This makes the city very popular for students and their families. Students come from all over the United States to attend school at the university. So Boca is an ideal spot for investors, since many students and their families need to rent a home during their stay.
There are also many major corporations that have made Boca Raton their home, bringing jobs and people to the area. Companies such as Office Depot, Lynn University, ADT and Cancer Treatment Centers of America.
Being such a large and popular destination has led to many popular attractions such as the Evert Tennis Academy, the quaint downtown Mizner Park area, and of course the high end shopping of the Town Center Mall.
Boca Raton City Development
The city is takes a very active role in protecting it’s image and beauty. A strict eye is kept on development. Boca has incorporated limitations on things such as billboards, size and type of signs, commercial buildings and advertisements. The development code even prohibits certain types of businesses. Businesses such as Walmart, outdoor car dealers and Costco from building in the city.
While Boca Raton was originally seen as a resort town, with a famous 5 star hotel, the Boca Raton Resort & Club, as well as other resorts, it has grown way beyond that to a thriving town with excellent schools, family oriented communities and plenty of shopping, restaurants and entertainment.
