A Sunshine State of Mind: Boca Raton Resort & Club
Introduction to Boca Raton, Florida
Boca Raton is a coastal city located in Palm Beach County, Florida, roughly 20 miles north of Fort Lauderdale and 30 miles south of Palm Beach. The meaning of the city's name is often mistakenly interpreted as the literal Spanish translation of "Boca Raton" ("Rat's Mouth") but the origin is likely derived from the more informal translation, "Thieves Inlet," which refers to a nearby geographical inlet in the Biscayne Bay area.
