It’s all relative. We just moved to Jupiter from East Delray, and Jupiter feels so wide open with less congestion, and definitely less angry drivers. I see some busy roads at times, but nothing I would call actual traffic. I do miss some of the big box stores and downtown element of Delray, but that brings even more crowds. I don’t think that Jupiter / Tequesta area has lost it’s more rustic feel, especially at the beach - at least not yet.

Frenchmans and Admirals are both places I'd never live..........miserable residents of both.

I've thought Jonathans was nice the few times I've been there as a guest but the real estate isn't great (lots of wood frame junk)

You're not wrong, Jupiter has become way too busy. Used to be a great place. Now its overrun. There is one large condo right on the beach, Ocean Trail. The others along beach road are very dense and across the road, but still ugly.

Jonathan's Landing is nice, & my relatives who live here LOVE it, & have lots of friends. Many are affluent snowbirds from Connecticut, but not pretentious my relatives claim...just the opposite. This has been their experience...just 2 people's opinion. They've been here for ~7 years...big golfers, quite affluent, so they don't even flinch at the home prices.

Real estate prices are sky high though. I'd estimate ~2x the prices of Southern Sarasota County, in a similarly situated community. I can't speak to the build quality. They have a CB home, & have had no issues. I see a couple homes under construction, & they are cinder block. I have no idea what the rest are, but my relatives home is very nice, & I enjoy staying in it when we visit. The restaurant is very good, and the golf courses are very nice. They even have a privately owned/operated marina on property for boaters.

They have a nice Publix shopping center just outside the gate, & lots of nice restaurants closeby. It is quite congested, and everyplace is crowded right now. I-95 is a dangerous and scary highway to be avoided as much as possible.

I wouldn't live here because I don't golf anymore, I'm too frugal to pay these prices, & the area's too congested, too but I can see the appeal for very affluent golfers from up East. Once you are inside the gates, you are in a quiet, safe, & nicely manicured bubble. You get what you pay for I suppose.

If you are speaking of my post then thx. We'll be going back over to Jupiter after the season ends. Probably mid-April to visit for 3 days.

If you wid up there, please let us know your thoughts.

Southern Sarasota county is ~10 years behind Jupiter for population density and traffic, so I'll enjoy it over here in SW FLA while it lasts.
