Boca Raton is the southernmost city in Palm Beach County, Florida. The area is famous for its Mediterranean Revival and Spanish Colonial Revival architecture, inspired by Addison Mizner, among the most well-known U.S. architects in the 1920s and who actually designed Boca Raton Resort and Club, the venue chosen for the INC Congress in May 2019. Mizner Park is one of the city’s landmarks. It houses an outdoor amphitheater, a movie theater complex, stores and designer boutiques and restaurants. Centrally located, Boca Raton Museum of Art features over 4,500 works including permanent collections with 19th- and 20th-century European and American paintings, and a photography collection with more than 1,500 images.
Boca Raton's eastern coast boasts two miles of beaches. The 67-acre oceanfront Red Reef Park is perfect for swimming, snorkeling, surfing and fishing. It is also home to the Gumbo Limbo Nature Center, an education project founded more than 3 decades ago with a museum and several aquariums with ecosystems for fish and turtles, and a boardwalk trail through the woods with an observation tower and an area designed for observing butterflies. In addition, Boca Raton's Lagoon also offers nature trails, while South Inlet Park Beach is an off-the-beaten-path inlet with a pristine beach.
Technical tours will be organized under the framework of the INC Academia.
