Lovely town

Nice town but difficult to ride bicycles in. The roads are narrow and sidewalks are difficult to ride. The bridges are even more difficult.

The whole area by the marina, near the infamous Tiki Bar, is lit up and synchronized to Christmas carols. Great place to bring the whole family. Sing along with the carols. Just sit and enjoy the light show. We didn't know what to expect and it was a delightful holiday season experience for our family. Pick up some fish food... More

Fort Pierce is a cute well-to-do little city/village. Quite a few laid back restaurants at the water. Down town THE high light is the market at the Water front. Fresh produce, local cooking, live music, dancing senior citizens. Saturdays 8-noon

Yes there are still empty storefronts, but there are lots of stores full of good stuff, a number of restaurants worth trying, and on many occasions, festivals that are just plain fun. The marina area and the park next to it are especially nice.

I admit up front that I am a fan of Ft. Pierce. From its early days as a cattle and citrus town until today, Ft. Pierce has been and is a "real" town; that is, not the product of a developer's profit dream. As such, it has all of the benefits and liabilities that a small Florida town has. The... More

Ft pierce has been undergoing a revival of sorts firstly with the rebirth of the sunrise theater( a wonderful musical venue). The opening of downtown condos and the continuing use of the sea wall for the Wednesday and Saturday farmers markets. Currently we also have Tuesday food trucks and first Friday evenings opening of stores and music venues. Thursday nights... More

We had only gotten a glimpse of Ft. Pierce driving through a couple years back. I'm ashamed to say we didn't know how much was here and never knew you could have so much fun. Looking for a trip for Labor Day, I decided to check it out on TA, and the more I looked the more interested I became.... More

So many things to see and do here - looks like it was just out of the 1950's - terrific atmosphere and great for walking around. There is a terrific theater downtown and great views of the waterfront. Wonderful shops and restaurants - highly recommend this!!
