Boynton Beach, Florida, was founded by a Civil War veteran in 1884, when there were no more than 50 settlers in the area. Now it is a thriving community of 118,000. You can find charming discount hotels in Boynton Beach, which is far enough from Palm Beach to keep a low key atmosphere. Boynton Beach is actually made up of two parts; the mainland and a barrier island. They are connected by two bridges.
At Boynton Beach Oceanfront Park you will find a beautiful beach, a boardwalk, a jogging trail, grills, concession stands, and a playground for children.

There is an outdoor play castle next to the Children’s Museum. The Arthur R. Marshall-Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge is a great adventure for visitors staying in budget hotels in Boynton Beach.
