I live in Jupiter, 15 minutes North of West Palm. I wouldn't live anywhere else in the Country.

I've lived in the Ft. Lauderdale area since 1979. Many people I know are going North to escape the traffic and congestion. The Jupiter area is great. Check out Tequesta too. Good Luck.

If you like Loxahatchee/Acreage, try the area known as Jupiter Farms. Same land sizes(1/14-2/1/2 acres), same $$$, and only 1 mile west of I-95 and the turnpike.

I'm building there and I wouldn't have gone anywhere else. If you don't mind a little drive Pt. St. Lucie is still cheap and growing fast.

Its like alot of neighborhoods in Florida, you've got beautiful very expensive areas on the water yet just a couple of blocks away there's outright poverty which brings in drug activity and crime.

Palm Beach lakes,

The reason I said dont buy downtown.

Acreage is cool, but like everyone said, you gotta trailer a bit. If you want waterfront, norther is cheaper, if ya got the $$$ Jupiter or Saint Lucie waterfront , if ya really got some $$$$ Boca, Delray, or Boynton Watefront.

Lucky, I agree with lauderdale, and that is why I say Boca, I am halfway between Lauderdale, and Palm Beach, and I an Right near the Turnpike, so I can trailer to Miami, and the Keys with ease.

I work in Palm Beach Gardens, close to Jupiter, nice area, just a little to pricey for me right now, I bought my house in West Boca 2 years ago, and have a small mortgage payment, and tons of equity in my house, probably going to stay here a little longer, but if I did move, it would be either to the Acreage(for lot size), or Jupiter(for short commute, and water access).

WPB has a population of 100,000. 10,000 apartments/condos have recently been built or are being built near downtown. A group spent $30 mil to buy a 4 acre site north of downtown to build condos and it isn't on the water.
