In Part I of this blog, we explained why it’s so great to live in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. In Part II, we continue in that vein, giving you tips on where to play and relax.
Palm Beach Gardens is known as the “Golf Capital of the World.” Indeed, there are 15 public and private golf courses within the city limits and a myriad of others within a short drive. The history of this golf mecca dates back to 1964 when Chicago insurance magnate John D. MacArthur struck a $2 million deal with the PGA of America to build their national headquarters. The modern day result of that deal is the PGA National Resort and Spa, now located on the Avenue of Champions off PGA Boulevard. PGA National set the early standard for residential recreational communities in Palm Beach Gardens. There, you can choose between five different golf courses, all of which have marvelous views and pristine landscapes. Interspersed along the fairways of these courses are more than 6,000 homes and condominiums of all sizes and architectural types ranging in price from $200,000 to over $2 million. Add to that a spectacular resort hotel, a world-class spa and fitness center, and a myriad of tennis courts, ball fields and open space, and you have the blueprint for most of the residential communities in Palm Beach Gardens. One added bonus; PGA National Resort and Spa offers to golf enthusiasts is they are the host every year to a PGA Tour event, The Honda Classic.
Palm Beach Gardens is dotted with subsequently-built residential recreational communities modeled after PGA National - The Country Club at Mirasol, Frenchman’s Creek Country Club, Frenchman’s Reserve, Old Palm Golf Club and Old Marsh Golf Club - each of which has its own unique atmosphere and variety of amenities that make it a challenge for recreational-enthusiast homebuyers to decide on one. We at Tauber Real Estate Services pride ourselves on being familiar with all of the gated communities in Palm Beach Gardens and Northern Palm Beach County and we can show all of them to you so you can make an informed choice as to which one best fits your lifestyle needs.
To be sure, gated communities are not the only home options available in Palm Beach Gardens. In fact, the best part of this city is the diversity it welcomes, which includes affordability. Housing in non-gated neighborhoods, whether they consist of single-family homes, multi-family homes, condos or estates, range in price from under $250,000 to multi-millions of dollars.
What makes Palm Beach Gardens even more attractive is its location close to cultural venues. Within the city limits, you can attend theatrical performances, ballets or concerts at the Eissey Campus Theatre, the PGA Arts Center and The Borland Center. With a short ride, you can also attend the Kravis Center or the Maltz Jupiter Theatre. Fine art galleries, like Onessimo and Studio E, are places within the city to be inspired. Just minutes away are The Norton Museum and The Flagler Museum.
And there are unique places to keep your little ones amused as well! For a family fun-filled day, visit The Downtown Carousel, PLAYMOBIL FunPark or Cool Beans Indoor Playground and Café.
Finally, Palm Beach Gardens is full of indoor and outdoor recreational activities. We have already mentioned how popular golf is here. Boating is equally as popular. Besides the Atlantic Ocean, there’s the Intracoastal Waterway and the Loxahatchee River to set sail. Paddleboarding, fishing, kayaking, canoeing and the like are all fun and very accessible.
There are 15 public parks in Palm Beach Gardens, where you can play volleyball, baseball, basketball, racquetball and handball. Grab a friend and head to the award-winning Palm Beach Gardens Tennis Center for a set or two. There are 13 beautiful trails where you can walk, jog, bike and hike. There is no shortage of yoga studios and spas. Just drive down PGA Boulevard and you’re bound to spot a handful. And just when you think you’ve done it all, drive over to the Burns Road Recreational Center and be amazed -- dance studios, art and sculpture classes, a gymnasium, basketball court, and pool. You’re sure to have a good time there!
