Within the Miami metropolitan area lies the bustling coastal city of Boynton Beach, Florida. Known as the ‘Gateway to the Gulfstream’ and having a reputation as a highly desirable place of residence within the area, Boynton Beach is characterized by homes that are distinctly influenced by the Spanish architecture that is so prevalent in the region. Whether you’re looking for a villa on the beach or a stately inland home, Boynton Beach has much to offer.
Many of the neighborhoods located within Boynton Beach face the Atlantic Ocean or one of the scenic bays and inlets that are scattered along the eastern coast of Florida. Residential development has spread from the shoreline inward, and has included the establishment of several planned neighborhoods and organized communities, of which Lake Boynton Estates was the very first. Many other residential areas have sprung up along the Intracoastal Waterway and the Federal Highway to support the growing population of Boynton Beach. Some of the most affluent of these areas include the upscale neighborhoods of West Boynton Beach Boulevard, Hagen Ranch Road, and Cascades Isle Boulevard. One of the most popular areas in the city, for residents and visitors alike, is the Boynton Beach Oceanfront Park, a busy site with many activities and attractions on the water.
Boynton Beach’s economy has expanded to encompass far more than the dairy industry that historically supported it. Now, a major aspect of the city’s economy is tourism and leisure, which is fairly consistent throughout the year due to the beach and the pleasant weather. Government, retail, and education make up much of the city’s other employment opportunities. The School District of Palm Beach County, the twelfth largest in the country, is one of the major employers in the city. Two higher education institutions, the St. Vincent de Paul Regional Seminary and the Florida Career College, are also located in Boynton Beach and have large local workforces.
