Best Attractions in Boca Raton
Boca Raton is famous for its beautiful beaches which draws residents and tourists from around the world. However, the city offers a number of excellent attractions apart from the beaches which are perfect for you to visit along with family and friends.
For those who live in the Waterford Bay apartment complex, the attractions are within easy driving distance and a great way to discover unique locations in the city.
Gumbo Limbo Nature Center
Located on the north side of Red Reef Park, the Gumbo Limbo Nature Center brings the wildlife of the region to you. Perfect for both kids and adults, the center offers nature trails, feedings at the aquariums, and many of the indigenous plants that make up this part of Florida. One of the main attractions is the scenic boardwalk where you can take in so much of the surrounding area. Plus, this is an excellent place to visit during the off-season when the weather is cooler. Admission is free, though there is a suggested $5 donation.
If Boca Raton has a singular landmark, the stunning Minzer Park is it. Offering the perfect gathering place for the community, Minzer Park is centrally located and offers the Boca Raton Museum of Art as one of the main attractions. Plus, there is a movie theater, high-end department stores, eateries, designer boutiques, an outdoor amphitheater, and so much more. Arguably the best part of Minzer Park is that it offers so many attractions without having to pay a dime.
Red Reef Park
If you could only visit one beach in Boca Raton, Red Reef Park should be the choice. The stunning setting provides adults and kids with the perfect way to spend the day. You can enjoy numerous water activities which include snorkeling to see the wide variety of marine life that is just below the surface. Plus, you can swim out to the many rocks and reefs in the area which is usually not that crowded compared to many other beaches in South Florida.
Sugar Sand Park
A big favorite of families, Sugar Sand Park offers a vast playground for kids and adults to run around and enjoy. There is also a complete gym, athletic courts, and nature trails that provides both indoor and outdoor activities. You can also play in the water park, sand box, and the iconic carousel that draws in visitors from around the region. There is even a science center that brings the wonders of the earth to kids and adults alike.
Wick Theatre & Costume Museum
For those who love theatrical productions, this is the place for you. The wide range of costumes from so many different eras provides hours of enjoyment for the theater buff. There is usually a play scheduled the year-round, making it a complete experience for those who enjoy live productions.
