show info

In the 1920s, Addison Mizner had a vision of building a new Venice, Italy in Florida. He purchased land and built a pink hotel and an expansive avenue with a gondola laden canal down the middle. Shortly after, the real estate market went bust and Mizner’s dreams of Venice went with it, though his hotel survived and is now the landmark, Boca Raton Resort and Club. Today, Boca Raton is a place to be pampered and live the good life.

The university did not begin admitting undergraduates until 1984. FAU is a part of Florida's State University System and has awarded more than 110,000 degrees.

Army Air Force

<p>Until World War II, the land west of Boca Raton was used for pineapple plantations. During the war, the Japanese farmers who worked the land were dispersed, and the land was confiscated by the Army Air Force to be used as a training facility for the B29 bomber crews and radar operators. Following the war, much of the land was donated to Palm Beach County. Today, it serves as Boca Raton's airport. As for the Yamato colony, you can learn more about them by visiting the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens.</p>

Boca Museum of Art

<p>The Boca Museum of Art is one of South Florida's premier cultural institutions.

Today, the 44,000 square foot space features a collection of modern masterpieces, photographs, and Pre-Colombian art. It's also home to a sculpture garden, an art school, and a number of exhibitions on loan from other museums.
