For a town that was no more than a fishing camp and a few farms fifty years ago, Port Saint Lucie has grown to be a lovely holiday spot. Get a holiday rental, beach house, or condo and enjoy the sub-tropical climate and ocean breezes in this beautiful natural setting.
Port Saint Lucie is the location of the spring training camp for the New York Mets. Visit Tradition Field and see how the team is shaping up for the coming season. Then, if you love to golf, head over to the PGA Village, a 51-hole complex with a learning center and historical center. After you wear yourself out on the golf green, head home and relax in your spacious rental home.
To the east of Port Saint Lucie is the Atlantic Ocean, so you'll want to schedule at least one day for the beach. Port Saint Lucie is also located just north of the Saint Lucie River, so you can explore the beauty of the river region on the St. Lucie River Princess. You'll cruise in comfort and be taken by the breathtaking scenery of natural Florida. The cruise is shaded from the sun and narrated for your education and entertainment. Cruises start in the afternoon, so you can spend a leisurely morning in your holiday home.
You can also explore nature on foot by hiking in the Savannas Preserve State Park, which should be quite near to your holiday rental. The park also offers canoe trips and guided explorations.
While one of the benefits of a holiday rental is having a kitchen to prepare your own meals, you will also want to eat out. No trip to Port Saint Lucie would be complete without a visit to Lily's Cafe. It serves great food at great prices. If you're lucky, Lily herself might be your waitress. If you're feeling more exotic, El Cubanito serves Cuban cuisine in a family atmosphere. Other restaurants include seafood, Indian cuisine, and American cuisine. Then you can return to your rental house for a comfortable night in, or go out on the town.
When you’re traveling with family or a group of friends, a holiday rental provides more economy and a lot more room to spread out. In Port Saint Lucie you might choose a rental house, a villa, or a condo. Whatever you choose, you will find that Port Saint Lucie is a beautiful holiday destination.
