I live in Royal Palm Beach, a little city just outside of West Palm Beach. This city is mainly for families, since theres parks and many activities for families to go to and attend. The city is averagely affordable, leading to many residents sponsoring and donating money back to the community. Theres always charity events which you can participate and donate. The money raised from charities goes back to the cause, for instance, I attended was a charity run for Alzheimer's. You never have to worry about not fitting in with the residents that live here because most of us tend to be liberal and are open for many ideologies. You will always feel welcome in Royal Palm Beach, Florida.

Royal Palm Beach is an excellent area to live. I’ve lived here for over 9 years in almost three different neighborhoods and I have never had a complaint. Everyone here is friendly, all your stores are local and near by. The schools are all A-C rated and the crime rate is quite low. The houses are always up to date and look brand new. Theres always kids outside playing just how it was back in the day. Theres many places around here that are kid friendly and if you ever wanna just go take a walk or sight seeing commons park is just the place. Also the fairgrounds are close by so theres always great activity there. I couldn’t ask to live any where else.
Royal Palm Beach is very small but very nice. The people are very nice and there is a sense of community because of the small population. Although it still might be too big to know every one of your neighbors you get a sense of who lives around you. There is plenty of parks and activities for children, which makes Royal Palm Beach a great place to raise your kids. But there just isn't much to do per se here. It is beautiful and full of parks and very clean, but it can get a little boring around here.
