Walking the beach at Bathtub Reef Beach watching the fish jump and the pelicans flying overhead and at any given moment they dart down into the beautiful blue water. I always wonder if they caught anything.
Stuart is a small town with a population of 16k and a median age of 47. Stuart is also known as the Sailfish Capital of the World. Historic Downtown Stuart has a bustling district of unique galleries, cafes, restaurants and shops. Most of the retail stores and restaurants are locally owned and feature a nice mix of upscale and affordable. Downtown Business Association says, “A great deal of effort has gone into keeping that small town feeling and creating guidelines that maintain the character of the historic downtown and waterfront”. Down by the waterfront is the new two-mile wooden Riverwalk where you can enjoy free concerts on the weekends and fishing off the pier.
When it comes to real estate, housing options range from condos downtown to eastern waterfront mansions in communities like Sailfish Point, Seawall’s Point and along Ocean Boulevard. The average home cost $200,000 to $400,000 with the majority of the residents in Stuart being second homeowners who spend the winter here. There is an influx of new residents looking to the move here full-time for the beautiful tropical climate. Plus being 45 minutes to the Palm Beach International Airport, two hours to Miami and 4 hours to Key West are close enough, but far enough for a weekend getaway.
Stuart is like family.
