America’s Gateway to the Gulfstream
Boynton Beach calls itself “America’s Gateway to the Gulfstream,” and while it’s rightfully loved for its beautiful beaches, the appeal of the city extends all the way west to the Florida Everglades. For those who are eager for a close encounter with the “River of Grass,” the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge offers ways to see native fish and wildlife – including a number of endangered species – by foot, bicycle and canoe.
Charming and quaint, downtown Boynton Beach opens a window to the community’s past with its historic buildings – including the Schoolhouse Children’s Museum & Learning Center, where children and families can spend time together in a variety of hands-on, interactive learning activities in the town’s former elementary school. Boynton’s Heritage Trails enlighten visitors about the growth and development of this “Old Florida” city that, at the same time, is gaining a stellar reputation for celebrating art in public places with its Avenue of the Arts and International Kinetic Art Exhibit and Symposium.
Whether you fancy the old or the new, Boynton Beach offers a special charm all its own.
