Many family-friendly neighborhoods here.The public school system is better than other areas of the county because families take an active role in their children’s lives. Sadly, it’s an overpriced area. Groceries are similar to the cost of living in a metropolitan city. A gallon of organic milk costs $6. Preschool will set you back about $7,500 for three HALF days a week. Also, people can be out of touch with reality here. Wealthy is flaunted and it’s tacky to see LV purses all over. Plastic surgery is the way of life. Boxtox and facelift discussions are part of the culture here. Jupiter used to be a nice beach town. Now it’s become a pricy, suburban sprawl that has little charm to it. If this review has offended you, and you live in Jupiter, clearly you’re one of the people who are out of touch with reality. Let’s not even discuss the thousands of snow birds that come here, clogging the area from September to April either.

I love Jupiter! Its a beautiful south Florida town. It offers solid family values in an atomsphere of coastal cool. There's so much to do: surfing, paddle boarding, kayaking. Hiking & biking! There's nightlife & some really excellent restaurants, whether you're looking for a hotdog or Zuppa de Pesce...
It is becoming very crowded. However, it is beautiful and the water remains clear. It's is rapidly growing for retiree's and younger families. There can even be gridlock traffic sometimes on Indiantown. There are good beach bars that can be moderately to expensive priced. There are plenty of good food joint and beaches. Cops can be difficult sometimes, but are mostly kind. Driver's are bad during season. There are draw bridges that are annoying and hold up traffic.
