One of the community's I managed was just up the street from Juno. I don't know of any crime problems in the area.

I normally watch the morning news and I have not heard any reports of anything.

If you drive through the area, you don't see a lot of vacant buildings, things seem to be well kept and cared for. The beaches are beautiful.

I would not personally be concerned moving to that area.

I live in Juno ad love it.
Its the only place in PBC I would ever consider living in
for my type of lifestyle
Its a lot of older ppl and very quiet. If you want youth
and activities, around Abacoa or the Gardens might be a
better choice.
Off-Season there is only about 1/2 the people here than
In-Season. You get about 8 months of rural style quiet
while right on a gorgeous beach and close to stuff most
people like

I was reminded how lucky I am to live in such a cool place
yesterday.......Craft Festival on A1A, then walked the beach home.
The waves were spectacular !! Every inch of 10' Im sure !
It was a scene from a movie ! All of this and despite the throng
of people at the show, all of about 30 people on the beach .
Not too many places in SEFL where you can get this type of beach
with no people to screw it up


My advice would be to veer of US-1 at A1A and look at the
neighborhood and property around the Township/Police building
and then hit Juno Isles and the properties in the neighborhoods
off of Ellison Wilson, inbetween US-1

Whenever I go by Ellison Wilson, I remember when I was about 3 or 4, my family moved down to Palm Beach Gardens from New Jersey for about two years before moving back to New Jersey, and then back down to Florida to Port St. Lucie, where my mother still lives. This was..... 1985? 1986?

Apparently though, at the time, we rented a small little cottage on the intracoastal, for something ridiculous cheap like $200 or $300 month. That house was subsequently torn down, and the "Seasons 52" restaurant is now where the house used to stand.

The owner must have gotten a pretty penny when he/she sold!


Random, I know!

Another reason I like Juno is the mix of old FL style houses.
In the neighborhood you are describing, the bourgeois built
some McMansions, but there are still some really cool
old places like the one you remember. That side of E.W.
has weathered the bad reality stuff well. When we were
looking to buy, there was nothing for sale back there.
Usually a very desirable quality in a neighborhood.
I saw my first wild 'Gator off E.W of too
