The Neighborhood

The City of Boca Raton is among the wealthiest neighborhoods in South Florida, home to many corporate headquarters such as the ADT, Cancer Treatment Centers of America and Office Depot. It is situated about 43 miles to the north of Miami and serves as one of the major cities of the Miami Metropolitan Area.

Originally, an area named Boca de Ratones was mapped as an inlet along the Biscayne Bay of Miami during the 18th century. However by the start of the 19th century, the area was mistakenly transferred on its current location as the Boca Ratones Lagoon. The name Boca de Ratones translates to a shallow inlet with sharp-pointed rocks.

The area was first inhabited by the Tequesta tribes who were eventually sent away by the Spanish and British people. The area was developed as a result of the 1920 Florida land boom brought about by the construction of the Florida East Coast Railroad.

The town was envisioned to become a resort town, with Addison Mizner spearheading the construction of many mansions and resort hotels in the community.

Today, Boca Raton is a booming city with a host of commercial establishments and entertainment venues.
