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!

About the Author
Thanks for cruising by! Along with creating this website and blog, 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 holidays. Although it seems that our family can never agree on anything, we do when it comes to vacations. We typically travel on cruises or stay at luxury hotels. We enjoy upscale dining, beautiful decor, excellent service, and spacious accommodations. However, we still need family friendly and comfortable. When we are not traveling, I enjoy dining out locally, as well as cooking and baking in my own kitchen.

There is no stopping us! Even though travel has come to a halt, I'm rescheduling, planning, and preparing for the next phase of cruise and travel. Plus, I'm working on making this website even better.
Meanwhile, we are anxiously awaiting the status of next winter's cruise to the ABC islands on Celebrity Cruises. Have you been there?
