Hi all - I've been reading up on the forums to get info on where and where not to live if I (potentially soon) move to the WPB area. I was hoping to get any and all opinions on some of the areas I'm looking at:

Downtown: Prado, City Palms, City Plaza, Courtyard at CityPlace, 610 Clematis
West Palm Beach: Emerald Dunes
Palm Beach Gardens: Gables Montecito, Fiore at the Gardens, San Matera, Residences at Legacy Place
Jupiter: Abacoa Town Center, Mallard's Cove, Floresta, Vintage at Abacoa

I'm kind of overwhelmed here, I know . Still, any insight or personal experiences in any of these areas would be appreciated!

Jupiter and PBG are both very nice, all the neighborhoods you listed are safe, beautiful, and clean.

I agree. So quiet and pleasant up there.

Do not, under no circumstances, move to florida. It is full of under educated, low or no morals/values and addiction laden people.

Thank you random internet person.

BTW, and for future reference, when commenting on the "under educatedness" of other people, it is important to ensure that you don't write something like, "Do not, under no circumstances..."

You were probably going for, "Do not, under ANY circumstances..."






But, back to the OP, all of those areas are good.

I have friends who live or have lived in Prado, 610 Clematis, Courtyards, and City Plaza. They are all young, professional types.

I have lived in Abacoa in Jupiter. I recommend it to anyone. A friend of mine lived in the "Vintage" at Abacoa and enjoyed her time there as well.

I was going to move there for work, but after FLORIDAITHICA's comment, I'm certainly reconsidering. After all, he makes quite the eloquent argument...

Anyway, thanks all! I think I've settled on one of the CityPlace area condos. They seem more "happening" and catering toward a younger crowd. I got to take a trip down there earlier this week, and I've certainly seen much worse areas. I'll be sure not to venture too far north of Okeechobee.

There are plenty of good areas and there are some bad ones like almost every other city but some may not be as bad. But in West Palm Beach, the bad areas are rough...but excellent city to reside in and its consistantly growing.

South tower is starting to rent downtown. I live in the Edge and its a nice building but you have to cross Tamarind on the walk home from Cityplace, which usually means cabbing it on the way home.

I lived in the Villas at Emerald Dunes last year. Thought it would be nice, since it was next to a golf course, but although the place was nice, it was still occupied by the same rude south floridians. Lots of events where cops showed up, including one where about a dozen cop cars showed up and surrounded an apartment with tear-gas guns, etc. BTW, funny thing on signing the lease was that the rules strictly prohibited drilling for oil !
