West Palm Beach, Delray and Jupiter

West Palm Beach - Delray - Jupiter Home
When the name Palm Beach is mentioned we always think of wealth and an area for the privileged. The address we are actually thinking about is a barrier island, 16 miles long.
Palm Beach County is a much larger area(2,386 square miles).

Its neighboring communities of West Palm Beach (by far the biggest city in PBC), Jupiter, North Palm Beach, Riviera Beach, Lake Worth, Boynton Beach, Delray and other communities strung southwards to Boca Raton are home to mostly single family homes and not just estates. Slightly inland along the SR 91 and US 441 corridors are numbers of newer housing developments. And farther afield but both affordable and easily drivable to West Palm Beach jobs are the lake communities and developments on or near Lake Okeechobee’s eastern shore. Good Real Esatate housing options also exist in nearby Martin County to the north.

Our conclusion? From a housing and real estate investment point of view, you will find this area offers a significant range of choice.

And what you get for choosing to live in the Palm Beach area makes it worthwhile indeed. Diversity and quality of life is what it’s all about in Palm Beach County. If you like recreational activities, especially the water, then this is the place. From the Atlantic, to the rivers, bays to Lake Okeechobee, your options are incredible

This part of Florida lies closest to the Bahamas, to storied Bimini, just across the Gulf Stream. Deep-water fishing is world class. The Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) is like a big salt-water lake running the length of the county north to south. Nearby are wild birding and kayaking areas like the Loxahatchee. West is one of America’s largest fresh-water lakes, the fabulous watery paradise Lake Okeechobee. The Palm Beaches and their inland communities lie closer to this resource than any other Florida metro area.

And if water is not your thing, well, Palm Beach County offers a rich diversity of cultural choices in music, theater, and art; colleges and universities where you can take continuing education courses, or where your younger family members can get their degrees; reasonably close proximity to Miami’s professional sports complexes; some of the best golfing in Florida; and great shopping. There’s a pretty good infrastructure of roads and routes, so getting around is not a problem. And there’s a big international airport connecting you to the world, with other alternatives in nearby Ft. Lauderdale and Miami.
