#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.
