The Top 5 Best Kept Secret Neighborhoods in Boca Raton.

Boca Raton is a brilliant place to live for a number of reasons such as a rapidly growing economic environment, over 16,000 acres of public parks, 4+ miles of beautiful beaches (including one of Palm Beach County’s only dog beaches), A-rated public schools, five colleges, and a vibrant art culture. There’s also a thriving tourism industry, with a number of resorts catering to travelers looking for golf or the beach. Combine these amenities with year-round beautiful weather & you’ve got a world-class quality of life.

Some of Boca’s most well-known neighborhoods include Royal Palm Yacht & Country Club & The Sanctuary, two of the most expensive residential gated communities in the country. There are however a select few lesser known neighborhoods, even to the locals, that have special characteristics to them. Some aren’t well known simply because people never leave.
