Getting There -- Like the rest of the cities on the Gold Coast, Boca Raton and Delray are easily reached from I-95 or the Florida Turnpike. Both the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and the Palm Beach International Airport are about 20 minutes away. Amtrak (tel. 800/USA-RAIL [872-7245]; www.amtrak.com) trains make stops in Delray Beach at an unattended station at 345 S. Congress Ave.

Visitor Information -- Contact or stop by the Palm Beach County Convention and Visitors Bureau, 1555 Palm Beach Lakes Blvd., Suite 800, West Palm Beach, FL 33401 (tel. 800/554-PALM [7256] or 561/233-3000; fax 561/471-3990; www.palmbeachfl.com). It's open Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 5:30pm and has excellent coupons and discounts. Monday through Friday from 8:30am until at least 4pm, stop by the Greater Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce, 1800 N. Dixie Hwy., 4 blocks north of Glades Road, Boca Raton, FL 33432 (tel. 561/395-4433; fax 561/392-3780; www.bocaratonchamber.com), for information on attractions, accommodations, and events in the area.
