Abacoa Town Center is a development with restaurants and sports bars that cater to the baseball fans that come for spring training games at Roger Dean Stadium. Other special events are also held at the stadium and at the town center throughout the year. The center has a narrow main street, Town Center Drive, that is closed off during special events and makes for a cozy setting, with banners stretching across the street. Where the street ends, there is a large lawn area with fountain and covered stage where summer movies on the green are held. Some cool events happen at Abacoa Town Center, the best being the July 4 celebration held every year in honor of Independence Day. There are free crafts for the kids, a bounce house and train rides, fun live music, and because it is July, the evening feels warm! Fireworks take place later in the evening around 10pm.
A popular event is the Food Truck Invasion every second Friday of the month from 5:30-10pm.
During Hanukkah in mid-December, a helicopter drops forty pounds of chocolate coins at Abacoa Town Center by the stage. What a blast!
On regular days, you can enjoy Le Metro French restaurant, a yummy pizza place called Costello's with nice outdoor seating, or CopaCabana Cuban Restaurant, several sports grills with live music on weekend nights. Florida Atlantic University Honors campus is right across the street but you never see very many students. Scripps and Max Planck Institute are also across the street and workers walk over to Abacoa Town Center for lunch.
After lunch, enjoy a walk in the forest of the Abacoa Greenway and you will most likely see a gopher tortoise!
