View Full Version : Anybody from Boca Raton, FL

My wife has gotten a job offer in Boca Raton, FL.
She's a nurse, and really fed up with her current job. She doesn't want to retire, yet.
I'm retired and winter golf sounds great to me.
So how hot does it get there?
What's the cost of living like? ie Apartment/house/condo, groceries, Electric, entertainment.
Oh yeah 18 holes with a cart?:beer
It's warm in the summer (90's everyday), but really where isn't? Winter is fantastic though. It's expensive for housing and living; less than California but in the higher end of Florida. I grew up there, but live about 15 minutes away to lower the cost some. I still work there though. Great golf; great food/ entertainment.

Boca is nice. Florida is nice. Tell her to take the job and move to the tropics.
There is a reason everyone comes here.
Cool!!! You dodge hurricanes and pay absolutely insane property insurance rates with the rest of us:beer

Nice place, great fishing. But, it's a little expensive, then again everything here on the gulf coast is.

Thanks guys..... It looks like it would be a fun place.
I looked at some housing online. There's some stuff that's not too expensive. I think I might want to look into a condo. So I can get away from maintance and yard mowing. But I do like my privacy, too. And all the loud racket that I make with guitars and amps.

I lived there for 8 years.
Generally very pretty and well manicured areas with that Florida style if you will
I can be inexpensive to wildly expensive --a lot of options.
Very hot most of the year but doable
If golf is you thing you are golden
Seasonal: busy all the time and insane in winter Nov to April
The closer you are to the ocean the fewer the bugs; the more west you go the mosquitos are from Jumanji
Scuba was nice, women amazing, restaurants great. I'm not into golf, tennis or boating. I was bored there.
