Wow....what draws you to both these places because they don't seem to have that much in common?

How about you visit both and see which one you like the best?

That certainly depends on what you are looking for. We moved here last year from the Jupiter/WPB area. Feel free to PM me to further discuss.

Lol I know right?

OP, NC has like mad nice weather and FL is probably more in your age group if you're retiring. Chapel Hill is gonna have tons of university students that are quite young which is great if you like being around young people.

Chapel Hill is consistently on the "Best Places to Retire" list due to the cultural amenities, recreational/social offerings, moderate four season climate minus ice/snow (rare exceptions), walkability, free public transit, excellent medical facilities at UNC Hospitals and nearby Duke University Medical Center, and overall healthier lifestyle. In terms of age, over a quarter of the population (28%) are over the age of 45, so you won't exactly feel out of place. Don't get me wrong, Jupiter is nice but really no different from most suburban Florida cities and lacking in the walkable lifestyle and cultural amenities of Chapel Hill. I too would encourage you to visit and live like a local while there to best compare. Good luck!

More like nothing in common! Both have their good points, but I personallly prefer a change of seasons. Oh, and as far as Jupiter having a larger retired population, no doubt. However, the OP did mention Cary, which is also popular with retirees.

LOL was trying not to be so blunt. And I've only been to Jupiter once. But I'm still scratching my head how these both ended up as finalists on the same list.

Jupiter, Fl.

"In Orlando, there's a bunch of lakes, but it's not the ocean," says Tiger Woods, who moved from Isleworth to a $54 million compound with nearly 10,000 square feet of living space on 12 oceanfront acres complete with a tee box, bunkers and four practice greens with different types of grasses. "Jupiter is just a great area to live."
