Depends on what you are looking to do and where you are staying. Ft. Laudy has more to do than Boca.

In Boca you say?

1. Head to the Boca Raton Resort at the end of Camino Real and get a burger…a $100 hamburger.

2. After that, have a drive up and down A1A, hit Highland Beach or perhaps head south to the miracle mile, the homes are a sight to be seen.

3. When you're done, hopefully its a weekday afternoon and you should go see all the trophy wives shop at the Town Center Mall off Glades Rd.

4. I'd hit Mizner Park for dinner one night and have a stroll, it's like an outdoor mall with bars, restaurants and shops and I know I know, "you've got a very nice mall in Alabama" but you should check this one out. You can hit the Dubliner for a pint, and watch the cougars on the prowl at GiGi's.

If you're not staying in Boca, then we can give you some ideas in Lauderdale as well but that's about the extent of lovely Boca Raton.

What a steal of a deal 100 dollars for a burger. I better get a burger king crown with it. I'm not sure when exactly I am coming in, so I'm not sure how much time I will have.  Thanks for all the advice. I really want to see the FAU campus also.

Haha yes, the trophy wives and all their gucci wearing daughters and sons that run amok in the mall.

The FAU campus is a lovely place to walk around, it's usually hot, but temperatures should be easing coming into the 'fall-winter' season withen the next week.

If you do want to take a look at what is in the city of Boca Raton yeah take a look at all those GLORIOUS mansions haha.

Also check out Mizner Park.

And if your here for the beach you have a good stretch of beach from Delray to Miami. :P

Gorgeous beach, Lake Boca, Deerfield Pier, scuba/snorkeling, drift and charter fishing, Boomers entertainment complex,  Loxahatchee Wildlife Refuge and air boat tours (west of Boca/Boynton), Morikami Museum, drive up to West Palm and check out everything from the beaches to CityPlace, Gardens Mall, Mall at Wellington Green, Downtown at the Gardens, Palm Beach Princess day cruise (gambling), Lion Country Safari, Flagler Museum and Norton Museum of Art.

If you have time during the day an airboat ride in the Glades is fun.  The closest one is at the end of Lox road west of Boca just south of the county line.

Don't forget about Atlantic Ave in Delray for a bite to eat or to prowl some bars..
