The city of Stuart enjoys an enviable location along Florida’s Treasure Coast. Much of the city’s border is formed by the St. Lucie River, and linking Stuart to the Atlantic Ocean beaches on Hutchinson Island is SE Ocean Blvd (A1A). The St. Lucie River and St. Lucie Estuary are an ecological gem that help form the larger Indian River Lagoon system, which boasts more than 4,000 plant and animal species. Hutchinson Island complements its sandy beaches with various other delights and is a great place to spend some time while in the area.
Stuart is often referred to as the “Sailfish Capital of the World.” This is music to the ears of angling enthusiasts who find themselves in town. Other reasons to visit Stuart Florida include the city’s pedestrian-friendly downtown district, the fascinating Stuart Heritage Museum and the insightful Road to Military Victory Museum. On Sunday mornings from 9 AM to 1 PM, Stuart locals and visitors alike can enjoy the weekly Stuart Green Market, which is held near city hall and has live music. Add in everything else that the city and the surrounding area have to offer, and you get a tempting destination for Florida vacations.
