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.

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!!
