Boynton Beach has always been a place I call home, I found no problems with my surroundings till I opened my eyes. Although I do enjoy the convenience of having many stores in less than a miles radius, it does cater to criminality. If I ever need to go to the mall I always drive 30 minutes to Wellington, for our local mall is run down and not very safe. The people love to constantly argue and tend to be rude. The biggest highlights of my town is the movie theater and the abundance of food variety! Boynton Beach will always hold a certain place in my heart, but a little change of scenery would open my eyes to what the world really has to offer me.

I have been a resident of palm beach county Florida for many many years. My son is a senior of Boynton Beach Community HS. He is in the graphic design academy and plays the saxophone and is a member of the marching, concert and jazz bands. We truly love the school and surrounding communities. Boynton Beach Florida is a great place to live, work, play, vacation and retire!

Boynton Beach is a very diversified city in Palm Beach County. In the east part of the city you have your lower income housing with very deep-rooted loyal citizens. In the middle of the city you have a very busy and bustling main area with a huge mall, restaurants, movie theaters, ect. In the west part of Boynton Beach you have your senior citizen communities. Then even further west you have your new mega housing development for multi-family homes and communities with their own schools and shopping plazas.
