Hi All, wondering some pros and cons of the city of Stuart and the city of Palm City. My family and I may be moving to Palm City, but want to get locals information first. My brother lives in Staurt and likes it a lot, but says that if he and his wife had a family, he would live in Palm City. information and/or Pros and cons of things like, crime, schools, friendliness of people, how many northern transplants there are(no offense but we live in Baton Rouge and there are hardly any transplans here), age range of people there, job market for an RN and an xray/vet tech, etc any advice or onfo would be greatly appreciated!thnaks!!

We have lived in Palm City for 4 yrs and it has been great for our family. The schools are fantastic. My husband works in Palm Beach Gardens and Palm City is convenient to both 95 and the Turnpike.

It is quiet here, and not congested compared to points south. Crime is low, people are friendly and just like other places in Florida, you find a lot of people from other places. Our neighbors are from Louisiana . Since there are a lot of family neighborhoods here, you find more people that age than retirees. There are a few +55 areas, but not many.

PC has your immediate shopping needs like Grocery, Drug Store, Pizza places, Panera, etc., but for bigger "box" stores, Target and WalMart we go to Stuart and Jensen Beach.

Regarding hospital jobs you probably would look in Stuart, West Palm and maybe PSL. PSL is building new medical facility near Tradition off 95.

Our kids are involved in plenty of activities, dance, baseball, Tae Kwon Do etc. I cant speak for Stuart since we have never lived there. We moved to Palm City because of the reputation of the schools. Let me know if you have any questions about Palm City.

thanls so much for your reply, if you get a chance to talk to your neighbors, I am curious why they left here. We are originally from south Florida(cape coral) and moved here 8 years ago for a change. We love it here, but miss the families so much. It also seems that people here stay here all their lives, seems we are the only people who do not have relatives in baton Rouge, which sometimes has us feeling a little "left out" though no one here has ever made us feel that way. My daughter always complains about wanted to move back to Florida(she is only 10) to be closer to family, although she has no idea of the involvement! Thanks again, we will continue to decide what is right for us, it is a scary thing to move!!
