In the parks adjacent to the beaches and also throughout the city, bike-riding is a popular activity.

Boca Raton features an array of restaurants that range from fast-food to upscale dining. Additionally, the city’s diversity is apparent by the variety of restaurants serving international cuisine. Visitors are always pleased with the selection of food that they encounter on their Boca Raton vacations.

Boca Raton is laden with history, and the Boca Raton Historical Society in Town Hall presents information and artifacts from the city’s remarkable past.
