America’s Gateway to the Gulf Stream
Go from beachfront beauty to exploring the heart of the Florida Everglades.
With the Gulf Stream just off shore from Oceanfront Park, warm, relaxing sea breezes are almost a guarantee. Those tranquil winds infuse with Boynton Beach’s “Old Florida” charm, tremendous retail, and the serene Florida Everglades to produce a great many things to do.
Ocean Avenue is just west from the beach. Cozy restaurants and boutiques welcome everyone to fun off the beaten path. Every October, this avenue becomes scary good for the Haunted Pirate Fest and Mermaid Splash. And speaking of jolly buccaneers, there might be few hanging around at the city’s Harbor Marina, where scenic dockside restaurants are the place for tropical libations. Outside of downtown, find superb retail shopping. Along the Congress Avenue corridor are the Boynton Beach Mall, Renaissance Place, and smaller centers with big brand names and local stores.
Then you come to the Everglades. The Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee Wildlife Refuge protects a massive piece of this one-of-a-kind terrain. From here, embark on boardwalks, hiking trails, and ranger-led tours.
