Hobe Sound ha a combination of Ocean Front and Intra-coastal Estates, canal homes, golf course communities, and very nice subdivisions. Very nice old Florida feel in this lightly populated location. Easy boating access to the Inlet in Stuart or Jupiter. Most of the towns land area is in the George Dickinson State Park. Residents are a combination of laid back Floridians on the mainland and celebrities that reside on Jupiter Island. For many years it has been a haven for wealthy businessmen, industrialist, politicians, and sports and entertainment celebrities.
