2016 Boca Spring Break Prep: Essential Tips

The countdown to Palm Beach County’s Spring Break is ON in our house (we’re all waiting for you!) and that got me thinking about all of the Boca spring break prep I need to do for having:

  1. My child at home 24/7
  2. Ample beach/pool time
  3. Easter around the corner

Boca spring break prep

To tell you I’m 50% excited, yet 50% terrified is probably nothing short of an understatement. I work at a school and #modernbocadad is Mr. Freelance these days, so we might have a bit more “vacation time” flexibility than many families who read this blog. But, here’s how we’re making sure our family and yours can make the most of spring break vacation this year!

Boca Spring Break Prep: Essential Tip #1

Make an appointment at Waxing the City Boca Raton. Because admit it, I’m sure you’re due like me.

Boca spring break prep Waxing the City

Did you know that you can even request a private waxing party for you and your mommy friends? They’ll pull out all the stops on a weekday evening of your choice with wine and appetizers and the best hair removal services in town!

I’ve personally tried their Brazilian, leg and eyebrow wax and I won’t go anywhere else. The experience is rather unique and amazing, and if you plan to spend anytime in a swimsuit over spring break, then CLICK HERE IMMEDIATELY. 😉 You’ll thank me when you’re smooth and fuzz-free!

WAXING THE CITY Boca Raton is located at 2200 Glades Road,

. (In Glades Plaza behind Brewzzi’s). 

Boca Spring Break Prep: Essential Tip #2

Avoid Walt Disney World like the plague. It is going to be CRAZY BUSY during spring break. Don’t be a Florida resident amateur! (And FYI- your annual passes are probably blacked out anyway.)

Instead, book tickets to Frozen on Ice at BB&T Center. There are plenty of affordable ticket options and it’s a lot shorter of a drive than to Orlando, that’s for sure.

If you’re a native to South Florida, then you know that society and fashion trendsetters mark their calendars early for the ultimate, “must-do” Sunday champagne brunch and polo at the International Polo Club (IPC) during the high-goal Palm Beach polo season.

We spent our Valentine’s Day this year at the IPC along with friends April Golightly and hubby, Kevin. They were pros having spent a similar day at the polo grounds last year.

Palm Beach Polo

We had QUITE the Sunday Funday. The (pink) champagne was flowing and the brunch options were seemingly unending. Let’s just say that all the convincing I had to do to get #modernbocadad to join me went out the window the minute he saw the brunch spread. And I think his pastel shirt looked rather good on him.

Don’t our guys clean up nicely?

Lilly kicked its brunch up a notch this year, creating the ultimate Palm Beach polo scene, with chic, vibrant pink, yellow, and orange Lilly tablecloths, napkins, and embellished centerpieces. The outdoor covered field-side dining area was the perfect place to watch the fierce action on the field, as well as score a few celebrity sightings during the match. Hello Tony Danza.

And, if you happened to splash a drop of your mimosa at brunch, well it’s all part of the iconic brand’s legacy that inspired local socialite Lilly Pulitzer to create the original prints that were fashioned into colorful shifts 45 years ago. #fashionfact

Palm Beach Polo

Here’s how parents can conquer Palm Beach Polo this season…

Palm Beach Polo Modern Boca Dad & Modern Boca Mom

Step 1: You gotta convince your man to join you. Thank goodness football season is over! Buy something stylish and pastel or in a Lilly Pulitzer print for you and your #modernbocadad to wear. Source a hat or fun headpiece/fascinator. Don’t forget your sunglasses!

Step 2: Get a sitter (or NOT- we’ll tell you why below!) and invite some fashionable friends to join you for polo on a seasonal Sunday at the International Polo Club Palm Beach.

Step 3: Book tickets to  the Lilly Pulitzer Champagne Brunch if you want to go all out…or Stadium Seating if you’re looking for a more economical option.

Step 4: Eat, drink and take in an action-packed polo match in (hopefully) beautiful Palm Beach weather!

It’s really that simple and fun! And I, of course, love a theme and any excuse to dress up.

If you want to forgo the fancy brunch and bring your kids with you to a polo match (there are Lilly outfits for little ones too!), then here’s another great, option that I definitely plan to take advantage of before polo season ends.

The winter polo season at IPC is open to the public, and every Sunday there is desirable stadium seating available (kids age 12 and under are free). Self-parking is just $5.

The field even boasts fun activities like bounce houses to keep your kiddos occupied during the match. And there is plenty of champagne to be had on the stadium side for the adults, not to worry!

Ticket Prices: January-April, Sunday Polo Matches 
  • $30 – North and South Stadium Seating
  • $40 – Center Stadium Seating
  • $150 – Box Seats (limited availability)
  • $5 ─ Parking on-site at the Stick and Ball field (behind the stadium)

You don’t need to dress up (but come on, go for it!) unless you are styling with the brunch and champagne crowd. Jeans, a colorful shirt, or a sundress is acceptable attire for the sideline folks.

Grab your family and enjoy an exciting afternoon outdoors watching the world’s most elite polo players passionately compete during the winter polo season!

MBMom Tip: Flats or wedges are ideal shoes to wear, as grass is the major ground cover at polo.

Polo is a really fun way to spend a Sunday, especially if the weather is sunny and cool! You can have your “Pretty Woman” moment while stomping divots (champagne in hand) or simply sit back and enjoy an exciting game of polo. FYI- the horses get REALLY close to you on the stadium. I loved it!
