Location and History

"Treasure Coast" is a term used to describe the South Florida region that lies just north of Palm Beach County. Depending on the source, you may find some variations in the Treasure Coast's specific boundaries. In general, the area stretches from Sebastian in the north to Hobe Sound in the south. Although many people also include Jupiter, just south of Hobe Sound, as part of the Treasure Coast. The name "Treasure Coast" is derived from a number of ships of Spanish galleons that wrecked off the coast during the 17th and 18th centuries. Artifacts from these ships have been recovered in the past fifty years.

Port St. Lucie is the largest city in the Treasure Coast, and it has seen tremendous growth over the past decade. Though the city began as a largely residential area, business sectors and recreational attractions soon followed. Port St. Lucie has grown into a large city, but it has retained the feeling of a small town. This appeals to many retirees who want to live in a quiet area which still has many local attractions. Port St. Lucie attractions include a variety of championship golf courses, shopping centers and charming restaurants.

There is less hustle and bustle than in more southern coastal areas, and a great deal of natural beauty. Attractions include Jonathan Dickinson State Park, an 11,500-acre nature preserve near Hobe Sound, and Busch Wildlife Sanctuary in Jupiter.

The beautiful, uncrowded beaches are often considered the Treasure Coast's prime attraction. With miles of sandy beaches, retirees can enjoy a wide range of water-based recreations, such as boating, fishing and swimming. The protected swimming areas at Gulfstream Park, Ocean Reef Park on Singer Island, and Coral Cove Park in Tequesta provide excellent snorkeling.

The Vero Beach Museum of Art is a cultural jewel of the Treasure Coast. This large facility offers changing exhibits, performances, workshops, studio art classes, seminars and tours. Additionally there is also a sculpture park and garden. Grandkids who come to visit will love taking a trip to The Children's Museum of the Treasure Coast, centrally located in Jensen Beach.
