Stuart is known by fishing enthusiasts as the sailfish capital of the world. In historic downtown, a fountain in the shape of a sailfish marks the start of a group of unique galleries, cafés, restaurants, and shops on Flagler and Osceola streets. The new two-mile-long wooden Riverwalk is where you can enjoy free concerts on the weekends, fishing off the pier, and walking to local businesses in a pristine environment. Bordered by the St. Lucie River, just west of the Indian River and the ocean, Stuart’s shoreside spaces are shared with sea turtles, and you won’t need a boat to see dolphins swimming just yards from the shore.

For a taste of Stuart’s past, stop into the Stuart Heritage Museum on Flagler Street. Built in 1901, the museum celebrates the town’s history with more than 10,000 artifacts that stretch back to 1880, when Stuart was first settled. When it comes to real estate, housing options range from pastel-colored condos downtown to eastern waterfront mansions in the communities of Sailfish Point and Sewall’s Point, and along Ocean Boulevard.
Stuart is about 45 minutes to the Palm Beach International Airport, 2 hour and 05 minutes to Miami and 2 hours and 15 minutes from Orlando.
