It’s Military Appreciation Month and in St. Lucie we have many opportunities for you to honor those who served our country.

 National Navy UDT-SEAL Museum

Visit the National Navy UDT-SEAL Museum in Fort Pierce and explore and learn about the history of the mysterious Navy SEALs and then head outside to the Navy SEAL Obstacle Course. Jump, climb, and race against the clock as you challenge yourself and friends to a test fit for a true Navy SEAL. This obstacle course will test your mental and athletic abilities and includes a rope climb, wall traverse, and a belly crawl. The course is free to try at your own pace with your museum admission.
