Ha, that is funny. Stepford. I can see that. Some of the gated, planned communities tend to attract the conformist families. Abacoa and Egrets Landing can be strange like that. Sometimes you see a group of 5 mommies and its like they called each other to make sure they all wore the same clothes, drove the same SUVs, and fixed their hair the same. I guess they are still trying to live their sorority days.

We loved Jupiter Farms, no HOA, we could get some land and every house was totally different.

Jupiter is nice, keep in mind there is a large Latino population and also a big illegal problem there. Drive down Center Street sometime or go to Jupiter Inlet on the weekend and get ready to bang on the timbales. Other then that it's a nice area, with nice beaches.

All of PBC has inequality issues like that, except for maybe Boca and to a lesser extent, Palm Beach Gardens. That's why I don't like it that much, aside from the fact that the people there(PBC) seem to have their heads up their you-know-what in materialism. Jupiter is really nice though.

I honestly think Tequesta is one of the best bets in PBC right now. Good public schools, close to the beach, not too far from shopping in the Gardens. Home prices for most of the older, ranch style single family homes (non-water) are in the low to mid 200,000's, with some short sales going for much less.

Tequesta is much less materialistic than Gardens and Jupiter, IMO.

These are dream areas to live in, what with great beaches, water sports, malls and restaurants all around. Your family sure is lucky. I am so envious

Tequesta is not like that, it is just a small town. Young families, elderly - there are some HOA - but there are also neighborhoods with no HOA's.

There are older homes, which I am sure some would need an update, but that would lead me to believe that the prices would be better as well.

There are mini-mansons along the Loxahatchee River as well. I live in an unincorporated area of Jupiter which is actually located in Tequesta. We have been here for about 30 years, we know our neighbors, raised a family here and are very happy here.
