What do you like about Palm Beach?
The weather. The increase in real estate prices. The affluence of the people here. The entertainment complexes like CityPlace and Downtown at The Gardens. The promiximity to "doing things" (the beach, Disney, Miami, Keywest). The abundance of restaurants. The many shopping malls. But most of all, Palm Beach County has great practical churches.
What do you dislike about Palm Beach?
You drive everywhere. There is very little social interaction with people unless you actively seek it. Residential new development consists of homes with very little lots. A lot of commercial new development consists of big box retail stores with very little character besides an overall "yuppie" feel (mainly out west near 441/State Road 7).
What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in?
The beach, CityPlace
How expensive is it?
The average home price went from low 100's to almost 500k in the last five years.
Is it safe?
How is the weather?
Great. Nice winters, hot/humid summers that you love on and off. I love the tropical "rainy seasons" that last for a few weeks a couple times a year. February and March have the most beautiful weather.
I recommend joining a great church where you can get to meet people and know God personally.

What do you like about Palm Beach? the weather, things to do, everything is a few hours drive, its not a major city but you can get the city vibe and be close to a major city, all the things you can do outside for free on a gorgeous day..
What do you dislike about Palm Beach? cost of housing, too expensive,most of the people down here are materialistic, superficial, and selfish..
What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in? beach, palm beach gardens, west palm..
How expensive is it? out of control
Is it safe? most areas yet, but some "pockets" one should never go into.. there is a reason WPB it top 20 crime per capita in the USA..
How is the weather? perfect year round minus the hurricanes..
Additional thoughts? takes a while to get used to and find good people, but once you do they are friends for life.. its a melting pot from all over the US and other countries so you learn about other people and get out of the small town mentality.
