Also, Jupiter is very quiet. For any serious dining & entertainment, you go to Palm Beach Gardens. Good luck!
Bridge Rd is desolate, 2 lane rd and about 6-7 miles from US1 (nearest gas station, McDonalds, supermarket). About 2 years ago I was going down Bridge road only to find an ostrich running down the road!

I didn't realize you'd be traveling the entire South Florida region for work and would very highly recommend changing your focus point further south into Southern Palm Beach County in places like Boca Raton, Delray Beach or Boynton Beach. There are plenty of desirable homes/neighborhoods in the 250K-300K bracket in those cities with "A"-rated schools and Girls Lacrosse programs at the high schools. I would especially focus on the west side neighborhoods closer to the the Florida Turnpike which tends to be a better commute option north-south than I-95.

If that's not a concern obviously overlook it, but it's a facet of life that can be an adjustment if not comfortable with being surrounded by belief systems you're not in tune with.
Jupiter and north PBC, in general, are VERY conservative for the Tri-County region (Broward/Palm Beach/Dade). Plenty of upper-middle/middle-class, 'suburban utopia' types with traditional values coming from relatively progressive northern states as well as your everyday Florida Native with a rural tendency over in Jupiter Farms.
Martin County, though, has quite a conservative mindset though nowhere near as behind-the-times as cities like Clewiston and Okeechobee, etc, etc. Of course, as a right-leaner myself in most issues, I have no conflict with that.
