Within its peach, Mediterranean-style walls, Mizner Park offers some of Boca Raton’s finest retail, dining and entertainment. The luxury landmark can be found about a mile west of South Beach Park, stretching across five acres of land just off U.S. 1.
Its amphitheater, art museum and seemingly endless strips of palm trees make up just part of the park’s appeal. It also features apartments, Florida dining hot spots like American Social and upscale movie theater, iPIC. There’s Strike 10, a bowling lounge; Cielito, a cool spot for locally-sourced artisan popsicles; and 24-hour infrared fitness studio HOTWORX.
