Valentine's Day In Boca Raton | Find The Most Romantic Restaurants In Boca

romantic v-day restaurants in boca raton

It's February, and love is in the air for Boca Raton's couples and newfangled romances. As with every holiday season, part of what we do as a brokerage is share the city, the lifestyle, and the opportunities that dot the landscape around your new Boca luxury condo. While real estate is our keenest focus, the adage "location, location, location" rings true for much more than the home you intend to occupy. Owning a condo in Boca Raton is much bigger than accessing some of the most luxurious and vaunted real estate in the world. In most cases, you're an elevator ride and a short walk from some of the finest locales in South Florida. For today, we prepare our residents young and old, new and tenured, to choose from a rich complement of restaurants fit for romance. Like beauty itself, "romantic" in many cases may be an accepted norm, but it varies dramatically depending on the tastes of those experiencing the moment. For our list, we place 5 romantic restaurants that are diverse and unique enough to suit the tastes of every couple but are not restricted to the moody, candlelit fine dining experiences we imagine when building a list of romantic places to take your love.

Boca Pumpkin Patch Festival

Boca Raton Pumpkin Patch Festival

As of September 22, 2018, we have officially said "goodbye Summer and hello Fall",  which for many is the absolute best time of year. When thinking about the Fall season, one of the first things to come to mind, no matter where you live or which season you most prefer, is likely “pumpkins.” From pumpkin carving to pumpkin pie, pumpkin scented candles to pumpkin beer, and the insanely popular pumpkin spice latte that has gained an almost cult-like following, it can be generally agreed that all things “pumpkin” are now synonymous with the Fall season.

As Boca Raton residents, we may not get to experience the crisp, cool air and the changing colors of the leaves that the Fall typically brings, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy all of the great activities and traditions that come with the season-- and yes, that includes pumpkins! On Saturday & Sunday, October 6 & 7, 2018, the Boca Pumpkin Patch Festival returns to Mizner Park Amphitheater, for a two-day, fun-filled Fall celebration! This event will take place from 10 am - 6 pm on both days, offering a full weekend of family-friendly fall festivities!

The main feature of the festival is, of course, the pumpkin patch, where you can select the perfect pumpkin from a huge patch of more than 2,500 pumpkins! The festival will...
