Things to Do in Boynton Beach with Older Adults PART I: Shopping, Dining & Arts

This post is the first piece of a two-part series on Boynton Beach attractions for older adults.

At The Club at Boynton Beach, we believe that settling down does not have to mean slowing down. To prove it, we maintain a rich activities calendar that includes social events, creative outlets, exercise classes, and opportunities for continued learning. What’s more, The Club is centrally located in the heart of Palm Beach County and surrounded by a community committed to providing a wide variety of attractions for families with older adults.

Whether you’re a local looking for things to do with their older loved ones or you’re a family member visiting Boynton Beach for the first time, there are adventures around every corner. Sharing in these experiences is one of many ways our families are able to continue building memories. We think you’ll agree that there is something for everyone.

Upscale Shopping and Dining

Does your perfect afternoon involve deals and dinner? You and your family will love driving past the towering royal palm trees on Palm Beach as you make your way to the world-famous Worth Avenue. Though known for its access to the very best in high fashion and designer pieces, even window-shopping is a blast thanks to its mesmerizing architecture.

If you prefer your retailers to be a bit more eclectic, we would encourage you to head in the opposite direction and take a stroll down Atlantic Avenue in downtown Delray Beach! This adorable ribbon of shops and boutiques will enchant you with its Old Florida charm.

Other notable shopping can be found in downtown West Palm Beach at Rosemary Square (formerly City Place), a beautiful outdoor shopping, dining, and entertainment venue. Boca Raton’s Mizner Park is another option. Similar to Rosemary Square, though just slightly smaller in scale, it houses well-known shops and stand-alone boutiques.

Don’t worry, we didn’t forget about dining! Just around the corner from The Club is Dune Deck Café, the perfect stop for breakfast, brunch, and lunch. Situated as close to the Atlantic Ocean as you can get, the restaurant allows you and your family to enjoy coffee and croissants as you take in the ocean breeze and salty air. Ask for an outdoor table to watch the waves roll in as you eat! Finish up by taking a walk along the beach or in the adjacent park.

Looking for something with a bit more kick for your palate? You simply must try Rosalita’s Tex-Mex Grill. With some of the most authentic food of its kind, their menu won’t fail to entice everyone in your group. Drunken shrimp fajitas, melt-in-your-mouth carne asada, traditional arroz con pollo, and an incredible pollo fundido are just a few items you can look forward to eating at each visit. And trust us, you’ll be back for more.

The Arts Experience

South Florida’s diverse cultural backdrop lends itself to many unique opportunities for enjoying the arts with loved ones. First stop? Kravis Center for Performing Arts. Broadway-caliber musicals, operas, comedy tours, and more are always on the agenda. Located just a few blocks from Rosemary Square, Kravis Center is a great addition to a day on the town.

Museums are another great way to discover the area together, and The Club is located near a variety of options. There’s the Norton Museum of Art, with an impressive rotating exhibition calendar; the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens, located on Palm Beach; and Flagler Museum, also on Palm Beach, the former home of railroad and hotel tycoon Henry Flagler. Guests are able to walk through nearly every room of this expansive mansion and imagine what life must have been like during America’s Gilded Age. History buffs won’t want to leave!
