My wife and I are unsure whether to go to Boca Raton or Orlando. What's the best and worst thing about living in the Boca Raton area?

Best, I guess its convenient to Ft Lauderdale or West Palm. Worst, rude obnoxious drivers. I find it crowded. Others may not. Really, they don't know how to drive in boca. Or more likely, its a self centered mentality, everyone for themselves there.

+1...........

As far as an earlier post "best roads".....obviously they weren't speaking about traffic, as in Glades Rd westbound off I95 at 5pm all the way to 441!

Oh yes, the roads are lovely, when they aren't covered with rude, obnoxious, speeding, aggressive drivers. Don't dare go to Glades around 5pm, unless you like sitting still for an hour.

Boca is a very nice place to live. But yes, can get crazy with traffic. Glades Road is a folly of planning... a major University Campus, the city's main gateway to its downtown and the mall and retail traffic west of I-95. Not to mention the main artery for the "West Boca" communities!

Boca has a reputation for being materialistic, but if you're used to living in those kinds of places elsewhere in the country you may not even notice a difference!
