Palm Shores is a smaller town, very close to rivers and ocean if you are into that. You rely on everything from neighboring areas for food, shopping, etc. though they are quite close. It is a 10 minute drive to Patrick AFB. The schools are by far the worst in the area. If you are concerned for kids schooling, live elsewhere.

Quaint little town nestled in between Suntree and Melbourne beside the Indian river. I would like to see a public pool and possibly a campground with RV access. I cant say that they need to change but that would be a nice upgrade for this community.
I love this area, but also hate it at the same time. It has a small-town feel to it, even though it's a moderate-sized city. It's kind of boring and there's not much to do except for go to the beach and the mall.
