Should You Move To Tequesta Florida?

Tequesta Florida

Are you considering a move? There are lots of wonderful places to choose from in our area.

Should you move to Tequesta Florida?

Off the top of my head, I’m going to say YES! However, if you need a little more persuasion than just me, here are some wonderful things about The Village of Tequesta.

Tequesta, Florida is the most northern town of Palm Beach County. Some parts of Tequesta spill over into Martin County. It’s actually a Village, due to it’s population size of approximately 5,600 people.

There are three types of homes in Tequesta, condos, townhomes and single family homes. There are are large number of homes without an HOA.

Throughout Tequesta there is a variety of community types: Waterfront, Golf Course Views, Wildlife Reserve Views, Cul-de-Sac, Country Club, Gated, Non-Gated and so many more!

The Village offers many sponsored events throughout the year, that are free to it’s residents. There is a sense of community here that only comes from small town living. The quiet, palm lined streets, unique small businesses, and friendly neighbors give Tequesta, Florida a real beach town vibe.

From the centrally located Lighthouse Center for the Arts, it’s a quick 3 mile drive to the beautiful Jupiter Inlet.

Grab a coffee at one of the two fantastic coffee houses, located in Tequesta. Oceana Coffee and Perk Coffee House. As well as serving local roasted coffee, both companies offer endless community events and a great way to meet your neighbors!

A great way to see Tequesta is from the waterways. Make your way up the scenic Intracoastal or see the iconic Loxahatchee River. You can rent paddleboards or a boat from Jupiter Pointe Club & Marina. Many homes throughout Tequesta are located on the water and have easy access for many types & sizes of boating and water crafts.

Families love Tequesta Florida, for all of the above things, as well as some very cool amenities available to Village residents.

One of the big favorites for the younger kiddo crowd is Constitution Park. There are 2 playgrounds (separated by age groups), a rock climbing wall,  tree house, walking trail, basketball courts, bicycle parking and so much more. Check out the other parks and facilities located in Tequesta Florida, including a skate park and putting green, here.

Great Schools

Homes in Tequesta on the Palm Beach County side are zoned for Jupiter Schools:

Jupiter Elementary or Limestone Creek Elementary, Jupiter Middle & Jupiter Community High School.

On the Martin County side of Tequesta, students are zoned for Hobe Sound Elementary, Murray Middle & South Fork High School.

New communities are being built all the time, and school information is always changing. If you have specific questions, I’m happy to help. Email me.

Make Your Inner Foodie Happy

I’ve already mentioned two fantastic coffee houses located in Tequesta. There are so many great places to eat and drink, you may never leave!

Here are a few of my personal favorites:

  • Tequesta Brewing Company – The original Craft Brewery in this area. My favorite is Der Chancellor.
  • The Crafty Crust – Brick Oven Pizza & Craft Brews.
  • Hog Snappers – They have a wide variety of sushi, fresh seafood and my favorite Fish Dip! Plenty of Delicious wine & craft beer too.
  • 3 Natives – The original location started here, before they franchised. Wraps, smoothies, cold press juice and more!
  • Lynora’s – Modern Italian Food, and gorgeous venue.

 

What Tequesta Florida Residents Are Saying

-Milka Gordillo owner of DreamallowsSo many things that I ❤️ about our tiny village… I love our Tequesta Park & the events they are constantly creating for residents. It is quiet, small & you easily run into your doctor at the supermarket. It is away from Jupiter yet you can still smell the beach! ❤️

-Jonathan Albert: I love the small town feel. Tequesta is a big as It is ever going to get, and it seems like everyone knows each other and looks out for one another. This was really apparent the day before Hurricane Irma. All day, neighbors were helping each other put up shutters, find gas and load up on ice. That evening, it felt like the whole village was at TBC, blowing off steam. It just felt like a great community.

-Anna Bordner, Blogger at AnnaBordner.com: What I love about living in Tequesta, is that I have this bubble of friends, family, and my favorite places all in one area – our gym, our church, the beach, breweries, good food and good coffee is all close by! I grew up boating, so having easy access to the water is key for our family and is where you’ll find us most weekends!

Grandview Public Market Is Finally Open

Grandview Public Market Is Finally Open!

I have been waiting for SO long to say that! West Palm Beach is the proud host of this new culinary marketplace. Located in the Warehouse District of West Palm Beach, Grandview Public Market is the 2nd business to open in a long list of awesome things to come!

If you go, bring your appetite. There are so many amazing foods to try! My family liked it so much, we went twice in one day. LOL

I knew things were gonna be awesome…

when I noticed the door we had to walk through was pink!

There is plenty of outdoor seating and each little spot is full of prettiness. Community tables on the Loading Dock give you an opportunity to dine with someone you may not know. Don’t worry though, conversation isn’t hard to come by. Everyone seemed super excited about their food and the atmosphere.

Unfortunately, my stomach wasn’t big enough to try everything, but between my two trips I was able to try quite a bit.

I started out at the Poké Lab Eatery. Fresh ingredients and Ahi Tuna are two of may favorite things to eat, so I was pretty happy with the entire experience. The OG Pokerrito was the bomb.com. I paired my meal with an Irish Red beer by Twisted Trunk Brewing at The Little Red Truck Bar.

My daughter LOVES Ramen

and was super pumped to try out the noodles at Ramen Lab Eatery. They are located in The Incubator, a rotating pop-up showcasing local talent. She went for the pork broth and was extremely quiet for a good 15 minutes, while she enjoyed every bite!

After I went home and took my food coma nap, I returned with my husband, step daughter and her boyfriend. And guess what… We ate some more!!

There are so many fun little details scattered throughout the property.

The wallpapers and murals are amazing!

Personally, my favorite sitting area was The Living Room. The room features pretty lanterns, green couches and chairs, and plenty of tables for chatting and dining. We enjoyed our dinner in The Living Room and it was really lovely.

We started with the tacos

The mister got chicken tacos, I tried the steak tacos, and we shared the fried yuca. This wasn’t my first experience with Zipitios. They make an extraordinarily tasty taco! Everything is so fresh and so tasty. They paired perfectly with our Chancellors by Tequesta Brewing Co., from the The Little Red Truck Bar.

The kids ordered delicious looking cheeseburgers from Claire’s and paired them with some good old fashioned Coca-Cola® in a bottle. Their bellies were happy.

We saved the sweets for last

I had only ever never seen Thai Rolled Ice Cream on Instagram, before our visit to Grandview Public Market. Nothing has made me regret my inability to digest dairy more than the CremaRolls Ice Cream Stand! It is a cool experience and they use tons of interesting combinations of ingredients. The rest of my family was RAVING about how good it was!

Don’t worry about me though, my Vanilla Almond Milk Latte from Rabbit Coffee and my birthday cake sandwich cookie from Earth & Sugar, made me a happy girl.

I give the the entire experience a 5 Star Review! There are still several eateries I didn’t get to try, so another trip is in our very near future. I’m already a big fan of their neighbor, Elizabeth Ave. Station, and I’m super pumped about all the new businesses coming to The Warehouse District.

Have you been to Grandview Public Market? If so, I’d love to hear about your experience in the comments!

See The Manatees At The Manatee Lagoon

HI friends! I had to post about a really cool, local spot I just got to visit last week. I’ve been wanting to make it over there for what seems like FOREVER! I told my husband, today is the day! It’s chilly and we need to go see the Manatees at The Manatee Lagoon!

It was great!!

If you don’t know, Manatee Lagoon – An FPL Eco-Discovery Center, is a new, FREE Palm Beach County educational attraction with a dedicated area for viewing manatees up close. I was a little worried we wouldn’t see any manatees. From their website ” The most ideal manatee viewing opportunities at Manatee Lagoon occur when cooler temperatures are sustained over a period of two to three days with minimal cloud cover.”

The day we went was only our fist cold day, but…there were about 8 or 10 in the water when we got there.

I took a few videos. (PLEASE excuse my nasal voice and my lack of video taking skills).

It was a pretty chilly day and the wind was blowing like crazy!

The day we went, the lagoon was mostly shaded except for the side away from us. So, we could see the manatees, but not up-close.

Even from far away, you can see their scars from boat propellers 🙁

We are so lucky to have Manatee Lagoon in our area. Education is key in trying to protect these gentle creatures. I highly recommend you visit!

Can’t make it to Manatee Lagoon today, but still need a manatee fix?

They have a web cam! You can watch right from your computer.

Have you been to the Manatee Lagoon? Let me know how many manatees you got to see that day!

Another Gorgeous Day In Jupiter Florida

LookingUp

Hey friends, Happy Wednesday! Wednesdays are good. It’s that day you can look over the mountain of work on your desk and just see a peek of the coming weekend. It’s do-able, we will make it! This Wednesday is a big one around these parts. It’s the start of Sunfest! Opening acts Duran Duran and Meghan Trainor will kick off the 5 day art & music fest on the waterfront in Downtown West Palm Beach. If you’re going, stay hydrated. It’s going to be the perfect weather for Sunfest…HOT!!

For all of you that live in Northern Palm Beach County, I’d like to get your opinion. Yesterday Palm Beach North officially launched. The individual towns and villages that comprise Palm Beach North are: Juno Beach, Jupiter, Jupiter Inlet Colony, Lake Park, Mangonia Park, North Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, Palm Beach Shores, Riviera Beach and Tequesta. It’s a marketing tool to help the Northern Palm Beach County businesses. What do you think of the idea? A helpful idea for local businesses? Or a confusing idea? I’ve always referred to our end of Palm Beach County as North County or Northern Palm Beach County. Do you like the name Palm Beach North better?

In other news, I’m planning a new blog series, “Living Naturally In Jupiter, Florida”. Stay tuned for updates.

Don’t forget…If you’re thinking of buying, selling or moving in the Northern Palm Beach County area or are interested in how much your current home is worth, just let me know, I’m happy to help. Contact me for more info. Cheers, Nicole

The Jupiter Local Visits The Art of Dr. Seuss

I finally made it over to the Gardens Mall last night to see the Dr. Seuss Art Exhibit. It did not disappoint! My favorite story of the good doctor’s has always been Green Eggs & Ham. That was the first book I ever learned to read on my own and my Mom still has that copy of the book. Even my daughter got to enjoy it growing up. This exhibit had several pieces from Green Eggs & Ham, as well as many of the well know titles. The Grinch, Horton Hears a Who, Cat In The Hat, etc. However, the ones that really caught my eye were the pieces that looked like fine art, but with a “Seussical” feel to them. The details are amazing, some even have handwritten notes jotted on them by the artist. I highly recommend you all go and see the exhibit. You can’t help but smile. It will be at the Mall until February 14, 2016. Here are some fun images I snapped while there. Enjoy!
