Royal Palm Beach is a quaint small town, a great safe place to grow up in. Not to mention super close to beaches and PUBLIX! Only a 2 hour drive to Disney World, and an hour from Miami, school districts are amazing and the people here are nice and caring.

Royal Palm Beach is a great city as it has activities and events for people of all ages and it maintains a pretty, clean environment. This area has a large number of stores nearby that are useful and easy to get to. The city is maintained well and it continues to improve and modernize.
I used to work for the Village of Royal Palm Beach as a general maintenance worker. I've lived in the city of Royal Palm my entire life, I've seen it go through many changes in my 22 years of growing up there. What I liked most about it was although it was such a big town it had an overall sense of community throughout. In my experience, everyone knew everyone and it holds some of the best memories I've ever had in that town. Going to common's park on a warm Sunday and being with my family are memories that will resonate with me forever.
