About Boynton Beach
Approximately 60 miles north of Miami and just south of West Palm Beach, Boynton Beach is considered a suburb of Miami in Palm Beach County. Much of the area which would become Boynton Beach was occupied by the Tequesta people who began living on the southeastern coast of Florida 4,000 years ago. American settlers didn’t arrive until well into the 19th century. The city is named after inventor and Civil War veteran, Major Nathan Boynton. Before the war, Boynton, a Michigan native, ran a successful grocery business, investing much of his money in Michigan real estate. Unfortunately, he was wiped out by the economic Panic of 1857. When war came in 1861 he put his anti-slavery beliefs to work by enlisting in the Michigan cavalry. He quickly rose through the ranks and was beside General Sherman during the Union army’s devastating “March to the Sea” and burning of Atlanta. After the war, he found success again with various inventions involving fire-fighting including the Boynton fire escape and a hook and ladder firetruck. Boynton also ran his hometown Port Huron newspaper and was the town’s mayor for three terms. He served in the Michigan legislature before his health began to fail. Looking for a warmer climate, he and his friend, Congressman William Linton, traveled to Florida where the men fell in love with land north of Miami. Boynton promptly built a hotel in the area while Linton purchased land further south which would eventually become Delray Beach. For the rest of his life, Boynton would spend summers in Michigan and winters in Florida. He died in 1911 at the age of 83. Like much of eastern Florida, growth didn’t come until after World War II with Boynton Beach’s population quadrupling between 1940 and 1960. It has seen steady growth ever since with a ten percent rise just in the last seven years.
A Boynton Beach tutor will keep you ahead of the academic curve so you can take some time away from the books to enjoy the world class beaches and the other exciting things to do in Boynton Beach and the greater Miami area. Boynton Beach Oceanfront Park is near where Major Boynton built the area’s first hotel back in the 1890’s. The 12-acre park on the Atlantic shore was voted the best family beach in Palm Beach County in 2001. Boynton Beach offers several amenities including barbecue grills, pavilions, picnic tables and volleyball courts. Several renovations have occurred in the park in recent years with the beach’s boardwalk restored in 2011. For golfers, Boynton Beach is a paradise with more than twenty different courses and country clubs near the city.
Just south of Boynton Beach, the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens in Delray Beach features a Japanese villa and traditional Japanese garden. The museum offers rotating and permanent exhibitions with more than 7,000 artifacts. Past displays have highlighted Japanese textiles, bamboo baskets and furniture. The main building has a theater, tea house and Bonsai collection. Visitors can take classes in floral arrangement, Japanese writing and traditional music. The museum also celebrates several special events during the year such as Oshogatsu, Japanese New Year, and the October Lantern Festival.
To the southwest of Boynton Beach are the massive wetlands known as the Everglades. The Francis S. Taylor Wildlife Management Area is 670,000 acres of vast wild lands and marshes. Access to the area is limited and the interior can only be reached by air boat. Hunting, fishing and air boating are available to visitors. Animals native to the Everglades include alligators, crocodiles, a variety of other reptiles, mammals such as rabbits and wild cats, manatees and numerous different bird species. The best time to view wildlife in the Everglades is between December and April.
