I drove through a part of Jupiter to get to the beach, and frankly, it was not easy. There were all of these high rises and the traffic was pretty bad. It took a long time to get to the beach, snaking down this little two lane road and through a gate to get there. Is my impression correct or should I give it another chance?

All these high rises? Jupiter doesn't have a single condo actually "on" the ocean!

Beaches have been closed for a couple of weeks and traffic has been generally light due to Corona closed businesses.

None of your post makes any sense.

No, the business district had high rises and was very busy. The two lane road to the beach had some one story homes, etc, but it just seemed to take a long time to get to. I was there last year.

Jupiter doesn't have a business district with high rises......Palm Beach Gardens has the one new building at I95 (Carrier AC company headquarters) and the FAU has a couple of mid rise buildings.

Jupiters too crowded, try another place. Jupiter was great 15 years ago, but now its Sardinesville. I'm there once or twice a year to visit family in Jonathon's Landing. Its great inside the gates, but once you leave the compound, its hell.

100% correct ... and sad also! I wanted to relocate to north Jupiter some years back. But now? Hell no! Add to that the insane cost of living, over-inflated real estate and BIG thanks to all the super rich entitled Golf Pros who moved there recently.... sad.

Jonathan's Landing (as is Admiral's Cove) is a super bubble. It's a small city inside Jupiter. Pretentiousness and snobbery is what it's all about there so NO THANKS.

Odd comment since east Jupiter has been a wealthy area for years. Burt Reynolds lived in Jupiter in the 70s, Perry Como the singer moved there in 1972........both lived there before Tiger Woods or any of the younger golfers were even born......Kid Rock has a house there but not sure where you would put him on your rich/entitled scale.

On the golf club communities you do realize that properties can be bought in there for 250-500K right? Not exactly mega bucks. Sure they have 10mm estates in both communities but they have plenty of average homes too.

South Florida coastal towns from Miami Beach to Stuart have always been pricey areas when compared to western alternatives.

jupiter and palm beach gardens have become boca north, as far as i'm concerned. in 1984, it was a bunch of old salts and rednecks in rusty pick up trucks having bonfires right across from the ocean bluffs condos. the whole coast of jupiter is lined with multimilliondollar and older condos that need to have their premesis' repaired, like the Bluffs. indian pointe road resembles a commercial boulevard lite in fort lauderdale. frenchman's creek is filled with a bunch of folk who got sick of boca, miami, or lauderdale. one good thing is that there are so many snowbirds that between may through late november, the traffic and crowds are way, way less. they've really overdone it here and it's become garish and tacky.
