I’m really excited to interview Jason Hill, founder of Owwll App and host of The Shrimp Tank Boca Raton podcast, about Boca Raton, Florida. Jason’s tips for the best things to do in Boca Raton are awesome because he moved to Boca from New York in 2017 to raise his family. He loves the warm climate, beautiful beaches, and business-friendly community.

Getting around Boca Raton
The local airports are Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) and Palm Beach International Airport (PBI), both of which are only 30-minutes to Boca Raton.
Jason says that, even if you’re staying downtown, it’s a good idea to rent a car since public transportation is not the best. For the best offers, visit Avis, Budget, or Hertz.
Uber and Lyft are also excellent ways to get around.
When you only need a car for a couple of hours, you can rent by the hour with Zipcar. Join now to get $25 loaded into your account.
