- You can't beat the surrounding water views with either the Atlantic Ocean or Intracoastal access. Many of the best resorts and hotels are located in these prime locations so you'll always have amazing views of the water. Ask for a room with a sunset view!
- The dining. Many notable restaurants are always on the top lists. The availability year-round of the freshest seafood caught daily and the delicious local fruits and vegetables are what sets Boca Raton apart for dining.
- Location, location, location! When I say Boca Raton, I'm also thinking of all the outlying areas you can get to. Within close proximity, visit Delray Beach for the vibrant shops and restaurants on Atlantic Avenue or wake up early to enjoy the sunrise or fishing from the Deerfield Beach International Fishing Pier. Fort Lauderdale is less than an hour away south or head north to exclusive Palm Beach.
One of our favorite destinations in South Florida is Boca Raton. Besides visiting my family (which is always a selling point!) these are the reasons why Boca Raton should be a stop on your next family vacation to Florida:
There are truly so many beautiful resorts and hotels to choose from in Boca Raton. Whether you are visiting for a night, a few days, or more, explore my recommended hotels in this area. Because they are located in a convenient location for travel, they are also perfect for a short stay before or after a cruise. Boca Raton is typically quieter than staying in Fort Lauderdale or Miami so it's really perfect for families. Upscale and still comfortable for kids of all ages, take a look at our picks below:
Most of my restaurant and activities recommendations are located within a 3-mile distance of the hotels listed above. Ask the concierge if they have a complimentary shuttle service or if they can help you arrange transportation.
I've also included a few ideas to do with kids noted in purple below. Even though a few picks involve shopping areas, you may want a few places to cool off during the hot, humid summer months.
If you are looking for a bit of nightlife, you won't have to go far to visit bustling bars and restaurants. Or by day, lay on the beach at your resort or visit one of the many beautiful public beaches where they have ample parking, facilities, and even gorgeous reefs for snorkeling and swimming. With so much to offer in a beautiful, serene atmosphere, you'll definitely want to come back to Boca Raton again and again!

Thanks for cruising by! Along with creating this blog style website, I work in an office full-time and as a mom to two energetic teenage boys. With our family's busy work and school schedule, we look forward to traveling during school holidays. Although it seems that our family can never agree on anything, we do when it comes to vacations. We typically end up on cruises or stay at luxury hotels and enjoy upscale dining, beautiful decor, excellent service, and spacious accommodations. However, with a family including two teenage boys, we still need family friendly and comfortable.

I'm already dreaming of the summer, which is my favorite season to travel. Even better, we are going on another cruise! I can't wait to finally get back on a cruise ship with Celebrity Cruises and explore the Caribbean. I'm excited to experience a suite, the suite restaurant Luminae, specialty restaurants and even a hot glass show (how fun is that?!) on the Celebrity Equinox. Plus, we'll arrive a few days early for a pre-cruise stay in Fort Lauderdale. We can't wait!
