Bucket List Dreams
Have you ever wanted to go horseback riding on the beach? Frederick Douglass Park Beach in Fort Pierce is one of the very few places you can ride a horse on the beach in Florida. Guided by professionals who’ve been doing the tours for over two decades, Beach Tours on Horseback takes you on a ride down a beautiful, isolated stretch of beach where you can relax, spot wildlife, and of course take a selfie for proof!
Stroll through the largest tropical bonsai garden in the U.S. right here in Fort Pierce. At Heathcote Botanical Gardens, wander through garden rooms throughout and soak in the gorgeous bonsai trees that are carefully grown & maintained by professional bonsai curators.
Have you ever thought about how relaxing it would be to go kayaking without having to paddle? With Motorized Kayak Adventures, you can motor gently down the mangrove trails and tunnels on the Indian River Lagoon and quietly observe native wildlife up close – no paddling required.
Another new kayak excursion available to visitors is a Get Up & Go Kayaking tour. Paddle through gorgeous mangrove trails with a crystal clear kayak- they even offer night, “Get Up & Glow” tours! See all kayak tours available in St. Lucie here.
All aboard the Southern Style Airboat in Fort Pierce! Hold on & keep your eyes peeled as Captain Rick takes you on a high speed adventure down the St. Lucie River! Feel the wind in your hair, spot alligators, otters, turtles & more & learn all about the area from a local who knows it all.
Set sail in paradise. With Sail Aiki, book a sailing charter excursion aboard a well-equipped catamaran (the captain is included!) and explore the Indian River Lagoon or go out into the open sea to enjoy a spectacular sunrise, sunset or on a sunny day. Guests are treated with beverages, music and comfy seating for the perfect view.
Hunt for Treasure
St. Lucie is located in the heart of Florida’s Treasure Coast. And the story of the Treasure Coast began in 1715 when a fleet of Spanish ships, loaded with gold, silver, jewels and other treasures were anchored just offshore waiting to make their way back to Spain. This was before The Weather Channel, so little did they know a hurricane was on the way. Most of the ships sank during the storm, scattering the treasure onto the ocean floor. To this day, these treasures are still found by lucky beachgoers or divers — giving the region its well-deserved name. So grab a metal detector and start hunting on 21 miles of beaches!
