Thanks for the responses. We are more concerned with the schools at this point (we can afford the HOA) as would rather send our kids to public. But looking at the school system in PBG , we are dissapointed and that may be a deal breaker for us. We are looking at Jupiter now purely for the superior school system or south in Boca. Education is very important to us as well as what colleges these public school kids get into.

Mirasol is highly regarded. We have a family place in PGA National and when Mirasol was being built several years back many people were bolting over there (along with the Honda Classic at the time). It is probably younger than PGA National (which definately has an older crowd). If they have some good deals there now you may want to check it out - they were going for a real premium when it was being built.

I absolutely love the area - I'm sure you will be happy wherever you find your place in Palm Beach Gardens.

Regarding the social aspect, i'm really looking for a community where the residents care about their township, making it a stronger and more vibrant place to where people want to move. I know there's not a lot of industry down there, i love the city bc all the energy it brings. We are in a weird place bc we are semi-retired which is why we chose JCC. I guess im looking for confirmation that the people are friendly and have the same family values as us. When we lived in SF the people were just very hyper competitive and it was hard to get to know people. I want to have dinner and pool parties have a garden play tennis & golf, cant get that downtown Chicago. I just wonder why everyone and more big companies wouldn't want to move to a place like Jupiter, unless i am missing something...?? Just venting and trying to figure out if Jupiter really is for us

I think I mentioned I moved from Milwaukee 4 years ago and really enjoy it in Jupiter. It is a 50,000 person city though so it's definitely not big city living. We've lived in a few other cities in PBC and settled on this area because it's a beautiful area, there is always something going on and there's lots of fun stuff to do.
You will find plenty of friendly, family orientated people in Jupiter. Not sure if JCC is the most family friendly community, but you should really enjoy Jupiter as a whole.

The school system in PBG has Marsh Pointe and Timber Trace, 2 of the best Elementary schools in PBC. How are you disappointed ?

It has been almost a year since we purchased a home in Mirasol. We have been happy with the community and there seems to be lots of kids compared to the other CC communities. We also looked at the JCC, but that place has never really developed and seem so isolated on its own.

There are lots of activities provided by the community. The nicer homes are on the west side of the community, while the cheap homes are on the east. There is a marked difference between the two. Additionally, there is a wait list for Golf equity if the home you purchase does not have one. I think the wait is around 3-4 years.

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who shared information. We have decided on Jupiter! We are now looking at Admiral's Cove and JCC. If anybody has any other areas to suggest in Jupiter, we would be interested.
