Boca Raton Staycation 101 | How To Prepare Your Home For The Best Staycation Ever

staycation boca raton blog

When you live in a resort that people spend thousands to visit, a "staycation" is nearly a daily occurrence. tongue-in-cheek jokes aside, the key to a successful staycation is understanding this is more than a mere "day off," and can be a way to not only enjoy the refreshment that true time off can bring, but reinvigorate your home life all at once! We asked our Realtors, clients, and... maybe took a few days to ourselves to learn what tips we should share on how to get the most from your Boca home staycation. Read on to learn more!

Weigh Your Budget Against Past Out Of Town Vacations

Look at the past few vacations you've taken and where you've spent the money. Even for extreme foodies, the likelihood that most of your funds were spent on transit and lodging is extremely high. Luxury hotels can cost thousands over a weekend, and airfare, while fluctuating often, is never cheaper than a robust trip to the grocery store. While we're not suggesting you have a staycation that spends your budget the same as an out-of-town trip, the added flexibility (and savings) will allow you to do much more in your space than you could abroad.

Boca Raton Home Architecture | A Guide To Boca Home Styles

a guide to boca raton home architecture

Boca Raton is privy to a wide number of South Floridian home styles, yet nothing is more synonymous with the beauty of our beachfront city than the name Mizner, and the style he brought to our community. Starting with the landmark year of 1926, Mizner's vision was carried out and influenced the construction of everything from hotels to public buildings, condos, and waterfront mansions. However, Mediterranean Revival isn't the only visage worth noting in Boca Raton. For design and architecture aficionados, we've organized the complete list of prevalent home design styles found around town. Read on and enrich yourself!

Mediterranean Revival

The most prominent of all Boca Raton architectural styles, the Mediterranean Revivalism was spurred by community forerunner Addison Mizner, whose surname is attached to the center of Downtown Boca Raton. Mizner's early designs borrowed more from the sand-swept and balmy tones of the Spanish Renaissance, with more Tuscan and Venetian features, later installed following Mizner's inspiration. Mediterranean Revival architecture is noted for symmetrical front-facing facades, red or auburn tile roofs, arched or circular windows, and open rectangular floorplans.
