I know that there are threads about these 3 cities already, but there isn't enough info about them, save for Palm Beach Gardens. I just simply want to know from the locals which of those cities/towns is the best to THEM, in terms of lifestyle and which is more aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

I'm trying to gather information on them and try to compare each of them to see if I can find out which city fits my NEEDS and likings the most.

It SEEMS like northern-most Palm Beach county in particular seems to retain the "Old Florida" charm compared to when you go further south, so I am kind of taking more interest in it now.

Thanks in advance.

I lived in Jupiter for a few years, in Abacoa, which is a planned community (but not gated).

Tequesta is the most "Old Florida" of your options. In terms of pretensiousness and materialism, it goes Tequesta the least, then Jupiter, and now Palm Beach Gardens in the past 8 years or so has had many many multi million dollar developments go up.

All are great towns though. Safe, clean, etc. Tequesta is "least pleasing to the eye," but it's still nice (it feels the oldest) and I'd rank Gardens and Jupiter as about the same in niceness. Gardens has more built up commercial options, however.

Don't forget Juno Beach as an option, however!

Nice review. Thanks. It's kinda hard to choose between the 3 though. They don't seem like the rest of south Florida, which is what makes them charming to me.

I like Tequesta's unique location, but for some reason, can imagine insurance is a bit higher due to the fact that it's surrounded by alot of water. From the few real estate photos that I've seen, it does look a little bland, but I dunno. Palm Beach Gardens looks a little like Boca to me, except newer. I don't know much about Jupiter at all.
