Palm City is a very small town full of retired old people. There are quite a few parks and many residential areas and communities but there's is not much to do in Palm City itself. Palm City is more a place to drive through rather than stop on. The closest nearby "hub" is downtown Stuart which is roughly 10 minutes away, and Palm City is about 25 minutes from the beach which is quite nice. It is a very suburban town but the weather is usually nice!

There is nothing within walking distance the beaches are brown st lucie water. People are old or very young families. If you want to play dead this town is for you.
This is a safe, quiet neighborhood. It's the perfect place to raise children and make sure they have a good education. She's at one of the best elementary schools in Florida, loves her teacher, and has many young children to play with in our neighborhood. Also, everything I could possibly need is less than twenty minutes from our apartment.
