The ocean is a world of its own. An amazing underwater climate means an abundance of diverse fishing up and down the shores of the entire area, with Fort Pierce as a standout fishing spot.

If you’re looking for dining and entertainment, Port St. Lucie is the place to catch New York Mets spring training, festivals and classy meals.

Lincoln Park, St. Lucie Village, Tradition and White City each uniquely feature history and culture, from Highwaymen art to utopian architecture.

For the shoppers in your life, hotspots include charming and historic downtown Fort Pierce offering unique boutiques, art galleries and jewelry stores, and Tradition and St. Lucie West, where walkable browsing turns shopping centers into enclaves of Florida style with eateries, nationally known stores full of deals, and exclusive boutiques.

North Hutchinson Island is especially family-friendly with three state parks, and miles and miles of beaches and trails, plus the National Navy UDT-SEAL Museum—the one and only museum dedicated to the history of the Navy SEALS.

Nightlife thrives on South Hutchinson Island with casual, open-air, local seafood restaurants, many offering regular live music. The family-friendly, Archie’s Seabreeze is a favorite for locals and visitors alike.
