We are loving the balmy Florida Spring weather and congratulating ourselves for choosing to reside in such a fabulous locale.  The trees are flowering, the birds are singing and sunshine fills our days.  We are fortunate indeed.

Entertain your Spring Break guests in style!  We include an article on a new attraction to our area, the Jupiter Water Taxi, offering a variety of cruises to enjoy our local waterways. 

And of course, keep up with Real Estate Trends and property news from BallenIsles sales overview and Featured Property section..
