The towns of Fort Pierce and neighboring Port Saint Lucie make up the south end of the "Treasure Coast,” named for old Spanish shipwrecks lying off the coast. Fort Pierce is a smaller, comfortable, laid-back residential community compared to the bustling beach cities farther south.
Fort Pierce is recognized as one of the most affordable beach towns in Florida. Downtown has kept true to its Spanish roots by maintaining the architecture and culture of its original settlers and the boundless citrus groves add to the pastoral elegance of the coastal town. Fort Pierce is also well-known for being a quaint fishing village, but take a closer look and you will find a treasure trove of activities. As one of the most diverse communities on the Treasure Coast, Fort Pierce has the cultural excitement to rival any “big city” atmosphere. With weekly and monthly events including premier shows at the Sunrise Theatre. Fort Pierce is also popular with eco-friendly motorized kayak tours down the Indian River or dolphin watch on a tour boat. Paddleboarding and horseback riding on unspoiled beaches are also a fun past time for residents and visitors. Fort Pierce is more than a place to call home, it's living at its finest.
