I Live In Palm Beach County In A Western Community Called 'Wellington." We Have Some Of The Best Schools In The State And The Area Is Beautiful. Close Enough To Get To Everything But Far Enough Out To Have Quiet And Fresh Air. We Are An Equestrian Community And In Season People From All Over The World Come Here (even Prince Charles). I Am Less Than 1 Hr. From The Ocean. Insurance Is Cheaper Than Living On The Coast. ALSO, OUR CRIME RATE IS BASICALLY NILL EXCEPT FOR MINOR OFFENCES. THIS IS AN UPSCALE COMMUNITY BUT YOU CAN GET A NICE HOME FOR AROUND $350,00.

I agree... Wellington is a nice family area with good school system. It has lots of nice upscale communities and there are several nice restaurants, shoppes etc in the area. In all if you are OK living in suburbs it is nice!!

I guess this is going to sound a little negative, but here goes. I live in Fort Lauderdale further south. West Palm is nice, but it's just too hoity-toity for me. It's all about fast, new, latest and greatest, cellphones up to every ear, riding in every Lexus on the road, and there are a lot of 'em there (which makes driving interesting). It might be a severe change for you, coming from a place like Maryland, which impresses me as being steeped in tradition, history and culture. I don't think anyone would describe West Palm in those words. I go there for entertainment and shopping, but I wouldn't want to live there. Remember, vacationing (or visiting the relatives) in Florida is not the same thing as living here. You have probably only seen the best sides of it. Be sure you want the 24/7 lifestyle before you pack up and move, especially if you are over 50.
