I was very excited to work with @VISITFLORIDA again eXploring Boynton Beach.
Nestled between Delray Beach to the South and Palm Beach to the North, I arrived at Boynton Beach. I was in search of some beautiful Florida views and to try out their many craft beer brews!
There are many beautiful places to watch the Sunrise.
THE VIEWS: I was happily surprised that most of the places I visited are free to the public - so beautiful and lush yet so close to the city.

My first question: why the long name. Here’s what I found:
“In 1986, the Refuge’s name was changed from Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge to the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge to honor former U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service employee and noted South Florida conservationist, Arthur Raymond Marshall.”
The Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge is 143,954 acres of northern Everglades wetlands.
