Port St. John is still a small community, but I think we're growing. Quick & easy commutes to Titusville, Merritt Island, Cocoa, Melbourne, Viera, & Orlando but not a lot to do in actual PSJ. My husband & I have built a quiet little life here with our dog and each enjoy ~20-minute commutes to work. We don't have children yet, so I just put average for the public schools, though that is an assumption. We feel safe here and it seems to be a nice community. We have lived here about 3.5 years now and plan to stay for the foreseeable future. Hopefully we will have more restaurants and other diversions added soon, that's the only real complaint we have, is regarding the lack of things to do close to home.

With the revamp of the space program, SpaceX has brought back residents and put small businesses back on the maps; once again a thriving family friendly community. The public school system has great teachers who care about their students. Indian River Lagoon offers fishing, dolphin watching, kayaking, and beautiful views. We enjoy short drives to attractions such as Disney and the Brevard Zoo. Overall, Port St John is the ideal town to live, work, and play.
I like Port St. John because it mostly has everything you would need, and if it doesn't then it is very close to places like Titusville, Viera, or Orlando. Port St John is relatively quiet, and most people know most people, so I definitely like that aspect. The one thing I'd like to see change is for us to actually have sign that welcomes others driving into/through the community.
