We've got the top reasons that so many love investing in a Boca Raton condo and why you should consider it, too. So why exactly are so many Canadians moving to Boca Raton? Keep reading to find out.

Perfect Climate

Most people know that Canada can get quite cold in the winter, particularly in some central and eastern Canadian provinces such as Saskatchewan, Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, Montreal and Newfoundland. That's why many Canadian retirees are called “snowbirds.” They spend the cold winters away from their Canadian home and fly down south to where the weather is warm and inviting. They make the warm coastal area their vacation home and then fly back up when the temperature warms.

The warm climate is also ideal for seniors who enjoy active lifestyles. You'll find quite a bit of tennis and golf players that reside here, as well as fishing and boating enthusiasts. Additionally, the warm weather is easier on sore joints. And with some of the United States' most beautiful beaches, it's no wonder that Florida is a premier retirement destination.

World Class Restaurants

Other than the abundance of outdoor watersports, Boca Raton is appealing for its selection of culinary masterpieces such as Trattoria Romano and Max's Grille. There are always new restaurants to try and places to go. You certainly won't get bored with the selections here.

Affluent Buildings and Communities

In addition to the weather and restaurants in Boca Raton, the residences are simply spectacular. From Ultraluxury condominiums such as 327 Royal Palm, Mizner Grand and the Addison, to 55+ active adult communities, this city has something for everyone. Most of the Boca Raton luxury condos offer amenities unlike anything you've ever seen. From 24-hour concierge services to cabana and poolside beverage service to valet parking, these buildings really go above and beyond for their residents.

Boca Raton is also famously known as the home of Mizner Park. This premier boutique, restaurant and entertainment center is geared towards those looking for luxurious entertainment. Additionally, the Mizner Amphitheater often hosts big-name musicians such as Hootie & The Blowfish and 2Cellos. Also located in Mizner is the iPic Movie Theater - an upscale cinema with full-service dining options. Think cocktails, recliners, in-theater service and sofas.
