We are a small family moving to Boca raton - me, wife and my toddler. My job is going to be in Boca Raton and I am looking for minimum travel to home from work (roughly 10-15 minutes one way). I am going to be there for a shorter duration (6-9 months timeframe) and will be renting a 2 bedroom apartment. I am looking for a monthly rent under 1400$

Are there safe and decent apartments in Boca Raton itself for this price range or would it be preferable to see nearby areas like Delray beach? Any other things I should know about the area?

I am from India and would like to know if there are any decent Indian communities in the area as well.

Thank you

I can't help you with where the Indian communities are.. but check out realtor.com and apartmentratings.com.
Best of luck!

Thank you for the reply.

For a decent 2 Bedroom apartment in a safe area - how much should I expect to pay? Is Delray cheaper than Boca? Are there any downsides to living in Delray as opposed to Boca?

Delray is cheaper than Boca in my opinion and I think if you like a little more entertainment in the area Delray might be the better option.

They both have good and bad areas... FYI - Boca gets busted quite often for under reporting crime.. so keep that in mind.
I'd think you could find a 2 bedroom in a safe area for $1400... but I would suggest not going any lower.

It is possible to find a modest apartment in east Boca in your price range. Your wife could walk to everything, including the playground near city hall, the library, all kinds of shopping...the beach is under a mile.

This is true especially if the apartment does not have a washer and dryer... something that is hard to be without when you have a little one.
