Often called the Sunrise City, Fort Pierce is one of the oldest communities on Florida’s east coast. Located in the “Treasure Coast” (due to many ancient shipwrecks nearby) Fort Pierce Homes for sale are located within diverse & neighborly communities with a burgeoning downtown that has still retained its old Florida charm even while growing. The historic waterfront downtown features amazing dining, shopping, and cultural locales plus some of the best fishing and boating in Florida. Every week there is a range of entertainment and activities from the Farmers Market, Friday Fest, breweries and cideries, and the historic Sunrise Theatre for the Performing Arts.
Fort Pierce has been named one of USA Today’s Most Idyllic and Historic Main Streets in America saying “Fort Pierce, a Treasure Coast “Old Florida” town, cooled by breezes off the Indian River… Swaying palm trees line the sidewalks, and the atmosphere evokes the early 1900’s when the city came into its own. Period Spanish architecture punctuates the downtown area, the star of which is the historic Sunrise Theatre. The Saturday Farmer’s Market is a must.”
Across the causeway from the downtown discover the inlet park beaches (along with many more areas for beach access) and the fantastic lifestyle of “Hutchinson Island” along with many more dining and entertainment venues. There are so many reasons to love this town, not the least of which is FREE PARKING all the time! Fort Pierce Real Estate is truly in an up-and-coming town, with an Old Florida feel.
