The Perfect Blend of Business and Pleasure
Boca Raton Bowl
On December 23, 2014, the City of Boca Raton hosted ESPN’s inaugural Boca Raton Bowl at FAU stadium.
By all measures, the event was a huge success; even the weather was perfect!
It was estimated that the bowl game added $2.5 million into the local economy, including 5,000 room nights in area lodging and thousands of people patronizing local businesses. Reportedly, 30,000 fans were in attendance at the sold out game and between 2 and 2.5 million viewers tuned in to the live broadcast on ESPN.
Best Place to Live
Boca Raton is the best city in Florida!
That opinion didn’t come from the Mayor’s office or the Chamber of Commerce, but from research conducted by 24/7 Wall Street.
The research reviewed data on the 550 cities in the country with populations of over 65,000. The list of America’s 50 most livable cities was measured using variables that included crime, economy, education, housing, environment, leisure, and infrastructure.
Boca Raton came in at #1 in Florida and at #11 nationally.
