Port St. Lucie — A Treasure Undiscovered

by Scott Kauffman

Fishing_Tournament_Fort_Pierce_edited-2_cc

This superb Sunshine State location in St. Lucie County isn’t as well-known as its southern neighbor, Palm Beach County, but that’s just how the Port St. Lucie’s populace likes it. They want to keep this uncrowded and unspoiled Treasure Coast a true treasure.

And why not, with 21 miles of pristine bleached white beaches left largely undiscovered? Natural habitats are peacefully preserved as manatees leisurely lounge in the Indian River Lagoon. And abundant Atlantic Ocean life features everything from vibrant barrier reefs to famous underwater, centuries-old shipwrecks to angling opportunities galore.

Yes, nature’s been very good to the people of Port St. Lucie and their St. Lucie County surroundings, which are conveniently situated about 30 minutes north of the famous Palm Beaches.

For golfing delight, this slice of golf heaven features a 35-acre PGA Learning Center, a six-hole short course and a 8,300-square-foot PGA Historical Center used by thousands of PGA Professionals each year.


Savory Eateries

  • Fernando’s Dockside Grille is a Portuguese-influenced restaurant offering an excellent seafood stew served in a garlic and saffron-based broth over a bed of linguine.
  • Pizza House PSL is a family-run Italian pizza joint that’s small in size but big in satisfaction. The meatball pizza is a must.
