Port St. Lucie – the ideal place to move to!
Florida has long been one of the most popular states to move to or retire. This statistic shouldn’t be surprising. After all, Florida boasts year-round warm and sunny weather — throw away those snow shovels — and is finance-friendly: There’s no state income tax, and no inheritance or estate taxes.
Although many places in Florida cater to people ready for the next adventure, Port St. Lucie is a particularly good place to move.
Big-city amenities with a laid-back vibe.
Located on the Atlantic coastline, Port St. Lucie has a population of just over 200,000 people. This means the city has (or is near) a wide variety of retail and grocery shopping options, and has world-class entertainment venues such as the MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Event Center. The Port St. Lucie city government also offers the community an array of resident- and business-friendly services.
At the same time, however, the coastal location — and abundance of tranquil beaches — ensures the town has a laid-back atmosphere.
A food lover’s paradise
Port St. Lucie has an eclectic dining scene that caters to food aficionados.
Unsurprisingly given its location, the city has an abundance of delicious seafood restaurants. In fact, some places also offer patrons the chance to purchase fresh fish. However, Port St. Lucie also boasts dynamic breakfast options, as well as steakhouses and Italian and Japanese restaurants.
Plus, foodies can also enjoy beachfront (and riverside) eateries with outdoor dining options and unbelievable views.
Nature lovers are in luck.
Florida is known for its gorgeous scenery, but Port St. Lucie especially has an abundance of tranquil options for those who love the outdoors.
The 20-acre Port St. Lucie Botanical Gardens boasts spaces dedicated to orchids, hibiscus and butterflies, as well as a whimsical Faerie Forrest for dreamers of all ages. Best of all, the gardens are free and open seven days of the week.
The Riverwalk Boardwalk, meanwhile, offers an ideal place to have a relaxing stroll on the St. Lucie River. The area also has two walking paths through mangroves and an observation deck, perfect for a leisurely afternoon of sitting and chatting.
And then there’s North Fork, St. Lucie River Aquatic Preserve, the home of all kinds of wildlife, including birds such as storks, herons and pelicans, as well as alligators, manatees, and river otters.
Great communities, world-class amenities
With the many options of neighborhoods, HOA, Condominiums and amenity filled communities, Port St. Lucie has it all and more.
Port St. Lucie’s many shopping, dining and entertainment options are close by as well. Residents looking for a quick getaway are also not far from popular beaches such as Fort Pierce, Jensen and Stuart; each are less than a half-hour away.
Life should be relaxing and stress-free, making Port St. Lucie, the ideal place to move to!
