In 2013, Marilynn A. Wick purchased a defunct theater to house her huge collection of Broadway costumes. Not wanting the 333-seat auditorium to go to waste, she also founded a resident theater company. Additionally, she created the Tavern Room, a restaurant that pays homage to New York City's famous Tavern on the Green and sports the amber and crystal chandelier that once hung in its foyer, as well as some of its china and crystal. Visitors can enjoy a tour of the costume museum followed by lunch, or grab dinner before a show.

Recent visitors raved about this hometown theater, from the quality of the performances to the tasty dishes at the Tavern Room. Almost all reviewers agreed that both the food and the quality of the stage productions were excellent.

Tours, which are by appointment only, are generally available daily and begin at 11 a.m. (call ahead to make reservations). The least expensive tour option, which also includes a three-course lunch at the Tavern Room, cost $48 per person. A cocktail tour is also available for $75 per person; a combination show and dinner package costs $130. Prices vary for individual show tickets without dinner. You'll find plenty of complimentary parking near the theater. To view a calendar of upcoming shows, visit the theater's website.

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.
