Sound Florida's relationship to its wealthy Jupiter Island neighbor
across the Intracoastal Waterway established its distinctive character
years ago. Earlier in this century, the winter residents of exclusive
Jupiter Island came by train to Hobe Sound which was the center
of commercial activity for both island and mainland residents. The
two communities grew up together, with a relationship much like
that of Palm Beach and West Palm Beach.
Hobe Sound's ability to retain small town charm plus its strong
sense of community are factors in attracting new population to the
area. Another factor is its nearness to I-95 which enables commuters
easy access to West Palm Beach. Area schools are considered among
the best in the state and Hobe Sound real estate provides some of
the best buys in Martin County.
