The next stop in our excursion through South Florida is West Palm Beach! Certain cities really love their beaches. Not only that, West Palm has amazing outdoor events, night life and is close to different major universities. If you are looking for an affordable and beautiful place to live, West Palm Beach might be perfect for you. Here are 8 reasons why you should move there.

      1. Housing affordability

Affordability is an essential factor when moving to a new city. If you are thinking about moving to West Palm Beach. You must be aware that the median price of a home is $198,100 and $46,672 is the median household income. This means that the home price to income ratio is 4.2x, a ratio that is 24% higher than the average in Florida.

      2. A good job market

Nearby, well-paying jobs are really a must if you wish to move to other places. Considering the average house in West Palm Beach is only 2% above national average, the average salary is also above average, at $62K yearly. It has a growing job market, especially for those starting a new business, considering the city to be a major tourist destination with around six million people visiting the are every year. The proximity to the Miami Metro certainly helps.

      3. Beautiful landscape

There are nearly 50 miles of coastline in Palm Beach County! Some of the better-known beaches are Delray Beach, Juno Beach and Palm Beach, all within a short drive from West Palm Beach. Other options include a visit to Lake Mangonia or a visit to the Grassy Waters Everglades Preserve, where you can hike, kayak and more!

         4. Excellent school system

When it comes to education, Palm Beach County has the eleventh-largest school system in the country, with 185 schools to its name. West Palm Beach alone has twenty elementary schools, seven middle schools, and nearly thirty public and private high schools.

         5. Big little city With over 100,000 people, West Palm Beach doesn't feel too overcrowded with people, but it also has enough people to make it interesting to go out at night and have fun! It has an active culture, with plenty of restaurants, bars, historical places and public events.

         6. Public events are for all Whether you would like to try different types of food, enjoy some live music with friends or just discover new art, West Palm Beach has it all. With events like Sunfest, a five-day event which attracts people from all over the world to watch bands like Blink-182, Steve Aoki, Flo-Rida and many more live concerts.

For food lovers there is the Palm Beach Jerk and Caribbean Cultura Festival, where you'll be able to try all types of Caribbean jerk dishes. For art lovers there is the CANVAS Outdoor Museum Show, where artists from around the globe transform public spaces into contemporary works of art!

There are also many other events at West Palm Beach, even ones that are free. You can have fun with friends and family without having to go far from home.

        7. No state income tax

We talked about this in an earlier article, but we can't state this enough, Florida does not have state income tax. It is the only state along with Alaska, Nevada, South Dakota, Texas, Washington, and Wyoming who have this privilege. This means that, while you still pay the federal income taxes, you can keep the rest of your paycheck! Less taxes the better, right?

         8. Conclusion

In conclusion, West Palm Beach has so many things to do and places to go. Did I mention there's a horse community you can join? How about the international boat show? Or the great options for ecotourism? Or the outdoor complex of CityPlace? I could go on and on.
