Meet Boynton Beach
One only has to look at photos of Boynton Beach, Florida, to figure out why so many people move to this spectacular community. Boynton Beach is known for its strong sense of community, natural beauty, and Old Florida charm. Located just north of Delray Beach and south of Palm Beach on Florida’s Atlantic coastline, this peaceful tropical paradise serves up waterfront dining, vibrant nightlife, festive events, and abundant shopping. Locals can also travel from Boynton Beach to Miami in less than an hour to enjoy everything the big city offers.
Let’s take a look at just a few of Boynton Beach’s highlights:
Old Florida Charm & Rich History
Boynton Beach was named for Major Nathan Smith Boynton, who came to South Florida from Port Huron, Michigan. In 1894, he purchased oceanfront land and began construction of the Boynton Hotel. Soon after, visitors began flocking to the region, seeking warmer weather in the winter months. Meanwhile, the area rapidly became a thriving farming community, growing an abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables for the hotel guests and opening up new sources of revenue through the shipment of winter produce to other parts of the country.
The Town of Boynton Beach was incorporated in 1920 and changed its name to Boynton Beach in 1941. Boynton Beach’s recent energetic downtown revival radiates from the bustling Boynton Harbor Marina docks to the community’s historic core.
Great Florida Restaurants
From Italian fare to Mexican cuisine to locally inspired dishes, the culinary scene in Boynton Beach is diverse, with something to suit any palate. One of the most popular spots is the iconic Banana Boat, a lively waterfront restaurant specializing in island-inspired seafood with live music and outdoor seating.
The average winter daytime temperature in Boynton Beach is 67 degrees and 84 degrees in the summer. The average rainfall is 61 inches per year. Are you considering relocating to Boynton Beach to escape the cold winter weather? Take heart! It has only ever snowed once in the area, during an unusually cold January day in 1977.
Fun Family Activities
There is no shortage of kid-friendly activities or family entertainment in the area. Among the most popular is the Schoolhouse Children’s Museum in downtown Boynton Beach. Kids and parents alike will love exploring the museum’s interactive exhibits. Just to the north of Boynton Beach, in West Palm Beach, you’ll find the Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society. This popular Palm Beach attraction is set across 23 lush acres with over 550 animals from all over the globe.
Beach lovers, rejoice! Beaches like Oceanfront Park are some of the most beautiful in the area, with access to gorgeous coral and artificial reefs. In addition to the sandy shores, Boynton Beach residents can find countless fun outdoor activities. Book a fishing trip, kayak through the mangroves, snorkel, or wander the trails of a local nature preserve.

Boynton Beach is also a great place to raise a family – with safe neighborhoods, well-maintained parks and green spaces, numerous entertainment options and recreation activities, unbeatable affordability, and high-quality education. In fact, Boynton Beach has one of the highest concentrations of top-ranked public schools in Florida.
