DISCOVER OLD FLORIDA IN MARTIN COUNTY
 
(2012 - Winter Issue)

Writer: KEVIN FRITZ



A bi-coastal community allowing you to watch sunrise and sunset without leaving the county, this gateway to the Gulf of Mexico is a gem not to be missed.

Besides, who else offers free parking year-round? That’s right—there are no parking meters in all of Martin County.

Martin County exudes a small-town feel, with beachside and coastal towns where outdoor activities and nature take centre stage. Tree-lined streets, quaint sidewalk cafés, restaurants, art galleries, charming antique shops and brand-name stores mix seamlessly with rodeos, cowboys and orange groves.

New to the area is the Sailfish Splash Waterpark, featuring a 680-square-metre leisure pool area and a 305-metre lazy river.

Focusing on beauty, Martin County is reminiscent of Old Florida with wide-open skylines. To assure its glorious views are never obstructed, no building can be taller than four storeys.

If it’s nature’s waterways you are seeking, this unique destination is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the east and one of the largest freshwater lakes in the U.S., Lake Okeechobee, to the west, with the Intracoastal Waterway and the Indian River Lagoon Estuary in between.

The county’s west side signals the beginning of one of the world’s natural wonders—the Everglades, which offer access from the Atlantic Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico. It’s the Sunshine State’s version of the Panama Canal and the only place in Florida where you can pass entirely through the state by water.
