The secret of this charming town slipped out when Coastal Living Magazine named Stuart “America’s Happiest Seaside Town”. What makes Stuart so special? The city’s quaint downtown boasts over 50 locally owned shops, restaurants, and galleries that buzz with excitement as friends gather to chat over lunch in a charming outdoor café or shop in a specialty boutique.

A local favorite in Downtown Stuart is the Riverwalk Boardwalk. Enjoy a romantic evening stroll or an invigorating jog as it wraps around the banks of the St. Lucie River. One stop along the way is the Riverwalk Stage, a cozy amphitheater that hosts weekly concerts featuring a variety
of musical guests to enjoy under the stars.

Along with weekly concerts and performances, Stuart has a busy calendar of additional events throughout the year. Every Sunday morning, the Market on Main is the place to be. This fun outdoor event along the Riverwalk features a variety of vendors selling freshly baked breads, local produce, colorful flowers, homemade sauces, handmade crafts, and more. Other events include Halloween’s Hobgoblins; Christmas on Main; Brews, Blues Bourbon & BBQ; sidewalk
sales; art festivals; and much more. There’s always something fun to do in this very happy seaside town!
