Boca Raton sits on the southeastern coast of Florida, just north of Miami. It has two miles of beaches on its eastern border and is considered to have a tropical rainforest climate. It is hot and humid all year round, with daily thunderstorms in the height of summer and no frost in winter. The amount of humidity and higher-than-average rain makes the city very lush, green, and full of wildlife. Residents can expect over 230 days of sun.

Mizner Park in the downtown area is a large lifestyle center with stores and fashion boutiques, restaurants, a movie theater, and the Boca Raton Museum of Art.
