Boca Raton is an absolute paradise for nature lovers, beachgoers, and outdoor enthusiasts. With a rich selection of public parks and several renowned beaches, there's always something to do outside in Boca Raton while the sun shines and the sea breeze is blowing.

Take A Jaunt Through Mizner Park

Mizner Park is the perfect gathering point for all downtown Boca activities. Whether it be a fine dinner before a riveting night out, a place to start or end your jog, or just a place to sip a coffee and enjoy the sights, there's a reason Mizner Park is named for our most stylish and historic residents. Mizner Park isn't quite a "natural" activity, in the sense that it resembles one of our beachfront parks or protected woodlands, but it is an indoor/outdoor setting that allows for a multitude of activities to center within. The Amphitheatre, named for famed donors the Count and Countess deHoernle, is the ultimate multiuse space, where seasonal festivals, special events, and evening concerts take place.

This sprawling open space also includes covered, rentable space for hosting events and small parties, a large green space with benches overlooking the inlet, access to the rock jetty jutting out into the water, and much more.

Take A Bike Ride From Highland Beach to Camino Real

Highland Beach is just a little over a mile. A1A is the only major municipal road spanning the community, which turns to Boca Raton at Spanish River Blvd. before leading closer to our Beachfront Offices. Further south is the small but beautiful Camino Real drawbridge, leading to the southernmost reaches of Boca Raton. This winding, wavy drawbridge only opens upon request from incoming boaters and is one of the steepest climbs of any manmade structure in Boca Raton. For cyclists, outdoor enthusiasts, or exercise lovers, taking a bike ride, or even a jog just a few short miles between these two points will showcase some of the best in Boca Raton Real Estate, along with the natural splendor that made this city such an attraction before anything was built around it. Be mindful of traffic, especially at your rear, but with a little safety precaution taken, the view from Highland Beach to Camino Real should be cherished and enjoyed as much as possible.

Hit The Links at Red Reef Park Golf Course

Just north of our oceanfront offices, Red Reef Park is one of the finest multi-use parks in Boca Raton. Featuring a large parking lot and crosswalk just north of Sun and Surf, Red Reef Park includes widespread beach access behind its celebrated public golf course. As one of the most easily accessed A1A beachfront parks from either Palmetto Park Road or Spanish River Boulevard, Red Reef Park's only downside is how quickly it can fill with the many enthusiastic, golfers, beachgoers, and Vitamin D enthusiasts who often brave scorching hot temperatures even in the midsummer to enjoy this wonderful course and beachfront.

Ski Rixen is America's first cable-run ski, wakeboard, and kneeboarding facility, with jumps, grind rails, and other exciting obstacles for advanced watersports enthusiasts. Quiet Waters Park is much more than Ski Rixen, despite that being its primary attraction. For landlubbers, there are numerous walking trails, athletic spaces, and beautiful coniferous canopies for lounging in nature under the shade.
