Martin County—“Sailfish Capital of the World”—is a slice of authentic Florida. Here, you’ll find colourful small-town festivals like Jensen Beach’s Pineapple Festival and Port Salerno’s Seafood Festival.

The county’s largest town, Stuart, has a downtown restored to its original 1920s look, featuring born-again art-deco landmarks such as the Lyric Theatre. Century-old buildings with balconies line Osceola Street. Nearby, you’ll discover interesting art galleries—even one with hundreds of pennies forming part of the floor. You’ll find art at the Stuart Coffee Company, and the Rare Earth Gallery sells innovative carvings, paintings, pottery and antique-like kaleidoscopes. Afterwards, you’ll probably find yourself indulging in mouth-watering treats at Hoffman’s Chocolates. Turn the corner, and you’ll come upon the Old Colorado Inn, a striking pastel-yellow-and-peach hotel.

At the Stuart Green Market, wander among aisles overflowing with local produce, home-baked goodies, natural soaps, artisanal cheeses, honey, wooden carvings, paintings, and, often, musicians. On warm evenings, saunter along the beautiful Riverwalk bordering the St. Lucie River to take in the lights and serene surroundings.

Yes, small-town America is alive and well in Martin County.
