Subject: Boca Raton

My husband will be attending a conference in Boca Raton in May. I am thinking of tagging along with my 2 kids. I'm not sure where we will be staying but it's usually the best resort in town which I think is Boca Raton Resort and Club. Does anyone know if this would be a good spot for the kids? They are 8 and 4 1/2. I thought we'd stay at the hotel most of the time. Would I need a rental car? I would probably need to get to a store so we can get food and wine supplies to cut down on costs. Any comments are appreciated - Mary
