Serena Williams, Jack and Barbara Nicklaus and about 50,800 other people called Palm Beach Gardens home in 2013.
Another 1,116 people moved into the city in 2014 – it ranks toward the top of the list for population growth in Palm Beach County. The city’s population grew 41 percent faster than the county’s rate overall from 2013 to 2014.
The results of a recent survey of residents may explain why.
Gardens residents said proximity to family, the weather, shopping and restaurants were their top reasons for living in the city, according to the results of a recent survey conducted by Kerr & Downs Research. Let’s take a closer look at those three reasons.
Proximity to family: While you may not have a lot of control over where your loved ones choose to live, Palm Beach Gardens has plenty of golf and retirement communities that would appeal to Mom and Dad.
The balmy weather: With February temperatures in the 70s and 80s, according to AccuWeather, who wouldn’t want to live in Palm Beach Gardens? Enough said.
Shopping and restaurants: These might be the most compelling reasons for setting up house in Gardens. The Gardens Mall is a shopper’s paradise, with 1.4 million square feet of specialty shops and high-end designers. When you work up an appetite, there are plenty of casual dining and international cuisine options to refuel.
The shops at Downtown at the Gardens offer a robust mix of apparel, beauty products and home decor. Live music in Centre Court adds to the ambiance Friday and Saturday nights. Of course, the signature carousel with unique animals like sea horses and flamingos make it a hard destination for families to resist.
