I’ve lived in Palm Beach Gardens my entire life. I’ve seen the area go through a lot of changes; expanding it’s real estate market and become a very popular area for tourism and vacation. Palm Beach Gardens has access to a myriad of opportunities for entertainment and relaxation due to its proximity to the beach and nature, tons of restaurants, shopping plazas, etc. In addition, PBG is close to the airport and makes it an easy spot for travel (traffic is generally pretty tolerable). Although Palm Beach Gardens does seem to be expanding its building due to increasing interest in living here, I do hope we retain our connection to nature and wildlife here in South Florida.

Palm Beach Gardens is known for being good for snow birds, and it is good for them. Young, single people may want to stay clear as there isn't much job opportunity or events for those in their 20s/30s. Public schools aren't great. Not cheap either. Housing market has gotten expensive and produce is as well.
A great city and community to live in, you can find everything and anything here. There are some good and bad schools here but that can be said about almost any city. Real estate can be expensive but is worth if for the business and the safety of the city. Great place for family and people looking for a place to retire at.
