5 Pros to Living in Palm Beach County
1. Diverse Communities
When people think about this area, they envision glitz, glamour, galas, and golf courses. There is a certain high society cache – but that’s not all there is to this location. Living in Palm Beach County can look very different; there are a variety of unique neighborhoods, each of which has its own distinct flavor. Jupiter, for example, balances strategic growth with small town charm, ensuring you have the best of city and community living.
Tequesta is close-knit, safe, and boasts excellent schools – and given its location at the northernmost corner of the county, there is plenty of privacy and “Old Florida” appeal. Boca Raton has that contemporary Florida feel; as one of the county’s largest cities, there is always something to see, do, and explore.
There are 38 villages, cities, and incorporated towns in the county. From Juno Beach and Lake Worth to Palm Beach and Port St. Lucie, there is a piece of Palm Beach County for everyone.
2. The Weather
There’s a reason why living in Palm Beach County attracts so many “snowbirds.” They’re escaping the cold, snowy, icy North in favor of sun, mild temperatures (74℉ in the winter? Yes, please!), miles of gorgeous beaches, and an array of outdoor activities in which they can participate year-round. There is plenty of rainfall, which helps the lush scenery thrive – and makes the location perfect for gardening and growing.
3. The Economy
Living in Palm Beach County is about more than sun and fun, of course. The economy and job market are essential factors in your decision. The news is sunny here too: the economy is diverse, thriving, and growing. Palm Beach County is one of only 22 counties to earn a AAA bond rating by all three major rating agencies. This is a measure of creditworthiness (note that the US as a whole has a AA+ bond rating, so Palm Beach County outperforms the national average).
Palm Beach County is one of the country’s most affluent, and it enjoys a diversified economic base, low debt levels, and a solid financial foundation. Major industries are tourism (notably luxury tourism), technology, bioscience, manufacturing, construction, and agriculture. Job opportunities are plentiful, particularly in these fields.
Palm Beach County has about 187 public schools, which offer before and after school programs, enrichment activities, award-winning programs, including Choice Programs and Career Academies, strong STEM programs, and excellent language programs.
