The Essential Romantic Guide
to St. Lucie

Where to Stay

Looking for a charming bed and breakfast or a room with a waterfront view? Check out these three romantic stays.

The Courtyard Marriott Hutchinson Island

Enjoy waking up to the sound of waves hitting the shore & taking in beautiful sunrises from your oceanfront room. At the Courtyard, guests enjoy being just steps from the beach and many on-site amenities. 

The Mellon Patch Inn

Just along North Hutchinson Island is a cozy bungalow B&B with 5 cottage-style rooms. The Mellon Patch sits alongside the beach (only 200 yards across the street!) and has backyard views to the Indian River Lagoon. Stay at this friendly B&B and enjoy delicious morning meals and great hospitality.

Club Med Sandpiper Bay

A secret oasis in Port St. Lucie, this all-inclusive resort is perfect for you and your sweetheart. From the adult only infinity pool, sunrise yoga and nightly entertainment- there’s a wide variety of fun and romantic activities on-property.


Where to Eat

Looking for a little natural ambiance for dinner? Dine along the Fort Pierce Inlet at On the Edge Bar & Grill for a casual night out or at Chuck’s Seafood & Steakhouse for a classic & fresh seafood dinner. Want to try something new? Make a reservation at Fernando’s Dockside Grill just along the St. Lucie River for delicious Portuguese dishes. For an upscale experience with authentic Italian cuisine, try Tutto Fresco in Port St. Lucie and relax indoors or outside on the patio while dinner is served.

Where to Drink

Vine and Barley is a unique wine bar and craft beer lounge. Sample over 75 wines through their “self-serve” stations throughout the venue and relax with games or soft live music with your special someone in this casual setting.

The Fort Steakhouse is an exquisite restaurant and bar in Downtown Fort Pierce. It’s perfect for pre-dinner appetizers and drinks or a little libation before a show at the Sunrise Theatre.
