What ages are the Rialto residents? Is there a variety or are they mostly young families? Is it a desirable place to live and is it convenient to stores, restaurants and the beach?

Everything in Jupiter is close to the beach -Rialtos specifically is about a 15 minute drive with traffic.
Rialto is very close to many restaurants and shopping. Not walking distance, but certainly a 5 minute drive. The shopping mall in Palm Beach Gardens is about 15 minutes. I know lots of young families in Rialto and they are very happy there.

Thanks jgreco5! Do you think older (early 60's) would be happy there? We have young grandchildren and like to swim, bike, play tennis and walk.

What do YOU like to do? Golf, fishing? I'm assuming this is your retirement home, make your home about you.

I think any age would be happy in Rialto as long as other children don't bother you. I'm sure I don't have to tell you that there are people who "belong" in 55+ communities that complain about children and are just cranky in general. When our children were small in our neighborhood, all of the other children were small and there were a few empty nesters when we moved in. Then the children became teenagers and the empty nesters REALLY started to resent the older kids playing basketball in the street, etc. Where do you want long term home to be? You may be physically fit now, but will you want a 2 story house 10-15 years from now?

As for the Jupiter as a whole, you will love it.

I had the opposite happen to me! When I moved to the Shores ten years ago many homes were still owned by the original purchasers. There were some cranky seniors that didn't like the noise children make when playing. I actually got threatening phone calls from one neighbor when my kids were in the pool. Now the most of the cranky ones have moved and the older people that like to hear children playing remain. New families moved in and I am about to become an empty nester. I still like the sound of children playing. Keeps me young!

Agree, every few years the neighborhoods tend to "gentrify" in terms of age and young families seem to move in cycles.
