Get the door, it's the liquor store
Suppose you didn’t pay attention in 4th grade Spanish, good, because Boca Raton’s translation doesn’t exactly sell it. “Rat’s Mouth”... ain’t the type of place you’d expect to play 18 holes and stroll along marvelous boulevards full of Spanish colonial mansions. Yet that’s exactly what you find here. So forget that image of a drooling sewer rat and replace it with the actual reality of the place. Boca is flanked on one side by a two-mile beach safeguarded by lifeguards, where you can find your own quiet spot and enjoy the many pleasures of the Atlantic. The dunes behind the beach are full of sea grapes and sea oats, and the seaside is dotted with attractions like Red Reef Park, a sea turtle sanctuary, nature trails and a butterfly garden. At the Boca Raton Museum of Art, you can enter a philistine and exit a pencil-mustached bohemian. Or if that’s too much culture for you, you can just enjoy the concerts at the Mizner Park Amphitheater. Boca Raton’s residents also get alcohol delivered straight to their door with Drizly. Our app or website lets you search for your favorite beers, wines and/or liquors and order them with a click. They’ll be there before that clock’s minute hand takes another lap.
