We will be in Boynton, FL area and if time permit to see some places to visit while we are there for a week while she's resting.

    We went to the Gator Bowl several years ago, which is in Jacksonville. We drove to St. Augustine. That is on of the most beautiful, calming places I've seen. There is a market we went to and also a place where the Fountain of Youth was found.

    Been in Florida over 20 years and St. Augustine is a favorite repeat place to visit: it has history, shopping, great eating, good local live theater, the beach, the lighthouse, and more and more. Enjoy.

    While you are in Boynton, drive up to Palm Beach and visit the Flagler Museum ( a wonderful mansion built by Henry Flagler)and the Norton Museum. There are also lovely cruises down the inter coastal waterway.
    On your way north to St. Augustine, consider visiting Cape Canaveral (or whatever it is called these days) to learn about the space program. You can easily spend most of the day there.

    I have been to St Augustine several times, it is really lovely, very mediteranean. I took a tour of the university and it was really fascinating so try to catch that

    Finally, someone talks about places I know a little about. We have friends living in Palm Coast. We are snowbirds; and whenever we winter in Kissimmee, we visit them. St. Augustine's Historical District is fun. They have 3 fudge places, clothes places, candle places, and many others. The restaurants are very good, too. Flagler Beach is another place we visit with them. I don't think Daytona Beach is all that far away either.
