When you have a busy schedule filled with routine, nothing feels more freeing than a Sunday with absolutely no plans. It’s a blank slate waiting to be filled with fun adventures. Luckily for those who live along Florida’s Treasure Coast, there’s never a shortage of exciting activities to make your day unforgettable. Let’s dive in and explore some of the local’s favorite ways to spend the day.

Ships Ahoy!

Between the Atlantic Ocean, St. Lucie River, and Lake Okeechobee, the Treasure Coast is filled with ways to explore the water. Take to the seas with a guided tour on a comfortable pontoon boat through Treasure Coast River Cruises. If you prefer to take the helm, rent a boat from one of two area outposts of Feet Wet Adventures and explore the area by water. At the Riverwatch location, paddle around the mangroves and through nature preserves. The Hutchinson Island location offers deep channels for boating and miles of pristine beaches. Make sure to keep your eyes peeled for manatees or dolphins on your adventure!

To the Market

Don’t sleep in next Sunday! Instead, grab your reusable shopping bag and a good appetite and head to Market on Main in Downtown Stuart. Open from 9 am to 1 pm, you can fill your fridge with tasty treats ranging from fresh fruits and vegetables to baked goods and sauces. Then, pick up some crafts made by local artisans to decorate your home. After the market, follow the sounds of music to Rock ‘N Riverwalk, a weekly waterfront concert series featuring the best local musicians.

Travel Back in Time

Take a fascinating look at the area’s eclectic past at the Elliott Museum. The two-story museum on Hutchinson Island is filled with something for every age and interest to enjoy, including a comprehensive assemblage of Model A trucks, an extensive collection of signed baseball cards, the history of local smugglers the Ashley Gang, classic artwork, and more.

Enjoy the Sun, Surf, and Sand

For many Florida residents, the beach is a natural choice on a sunny Sunday. With 21 miles of pristine white sand and beautiful azure waters, the Treasure Coast is lined with spectacular options to choose from. Stuart and Jensen Beaches are favored choices, with picnic areas, sand volleyball courts, and beachside dining. Families can enjoy walking along the beach and picking up seashells, or a relaxing dip in the ocean to cool off and float away any worries. Or just bring a beach towel and a good book for a peaceful day in the sand.

Take Me Out to the Ball Game

Enjoy a ballpark hot dog and the roar of the crowd at Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium. Located in nearby Jupiter, this modern ballpark hosts spring training games for both the Miami Marlins and the St. Louis Cardinals. When these major league teams leave Roger Dean to head to their home stadiums, the minors arrive. In fact, it’s the only stadium in the country to host four minor league teams. So, get some peanuts and Cracker Jacks and cheer on your favorite sports team!
