Located within Florida, United States, the city of Palm Beach Gardens is located in the Miami metropolitan area.
Palm Beach Gardens is quiet, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamor - although that is not the case near one of the railway lines, the airport (North Palm Beach County General Aviation Airport) or Interstate 95. Reaching green spaces, such as Frenchman's Forest and Loxahatchee Slough, is sometimes difficult from most locations within the city since they are distributed sporadically. Still, there are around 20 parks nearby for residents to check out.
Single detached homes are the predominant housing type, representing roughly half of buildings in Palm Beach Gardens, whereas the rest are mainly large apartment buildings, small apartment buildings, and townhouses. This city also has quite a good variety of housing sizes - it is quite easy to find homes ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms. Home owners occupy around 70% of the units in Palm Beach Gardens whereas the remainder are rented. The homes in this city are quite new, since roughly 30% of its dwellings were built in the 1980s, while most of the remaining buildings were constructed in the 1960s and the 1990s.
High schools and primary schools are not especially abundant in Palm Beach Gardens, and consequently may require an extended walk to get to.
