South Inlet Park is an off-the-beaten-path local favorite. The quiet inlet is rarely crowded and offers peaceful fishing from the shore or jetty, a lovely beach, restrooms and outdoor showers, as well as a small picnic area.

Recent travelers called it a great little secret place for fishing, swimming and snorkeling and said it's a beautiful spot to watch the sunset. Many preferred this stretch of sand to their hotel pool thanks to the peaceful atmosphere.

You'll find the park about 5 miles southeast of downtown Boca. The park is open daily from sunrise to sunset. On-site parking costs $3 per hour on weekdays and $4 per hour on weekends and holidays. For more information on amenities, visit the Palm Beach County website.

#1 Mizner Park

One of the landmarks in Boca Raton and the primary community gathering place, Mizner Park was designed by architect Addison Mizner and reflects his love of Mediterranean architecture. This centrally located park is home to the Boca Raton Museum of Art, an outdoor amphitheater, a movie theater complex, and a wide variety of high-end department stores, designer boutiques and eateries.

Recent visitors loved the tropical garden vibe of this multiuse entertainment area, saying it's a "must-see" and perfect for strolling. Meanwhile, locals appreciate that parking and select events (such as summer concerts) are free, noting that it's a highlight for out-of-towners.
