When living in Boca Raton most people tend to think of mansions, fancy cars and expensive living. But honestly living in Boca is a great! You always have the nicest florida weather with an abundance of palm trees, local parks for children to play, and great plazas with plenty of little shops. The beaches in Boca are also amazingly clean and beautiful. Boca is also home to a few celebrities such as Adam Sandler, Ariana Grande, and even Jon Bon Jovi. Another thing about Boca is you don't have to be a celebrity to feel like one in Boca. Boca is also really well known for its health and fitness there are plenty of golf course, tennis courts and even several fitness locations. You would just have to take a trip to Boca to enjoy everything Im telling you!

Unfortunately I have more that I dislike about my hometown than I enjoy. The only thing I really loved was the beach. Boca has beautiful beaches with crystal blue waters and cloudless skies on good days which happen quite often year round, and attract everyone and their mother during the long summer days. However, there is nothing for high school students to do around here without spending money or doing something illegal, and it is being rapidly over developed. Boca has become increasingly more attractive to people over the years which has lead to the demand of more places to live. All of the apartments are being built on top of each other and the continuously increasing population makes tons of traffic downtown and on the interstate.

Boca Raton has been an amazing community to attend a university. In my three years of going to Florida Atlantic University, Boca Raton has easily become my second home. I feel safe here. I feel as if I am comfortably in my element. Although my university is fairly new, both the school and community have really established this town for its tourism and student population. As the years go by, I would definitely like to see more traditions and college spirit throughout the city, but Boca Raton definitely makes its mark as elegant and tasteful. What is the absolute best part of living in Boca Raton? Living only 10 minutes away from the nearest beach.
