St. Lucie Co. is a lovely place for raising a family, or for relaxing into your golden years. It offers a variety of eating locations, retail shops and religious facilities. The many botanical gardens around the area are exceptionally beautiful.
It does however, lack enough beach access roads. The night life is somewhat puny. Generally speaking, it is a nice place to live.

Good traffic and overall fairly peaceful town. Area needs a bit more business and to fill up all the vacant building storefronts. City Place is underutilized asset that needs expansion.
Central to larger cities (Palm Beach, Broward, & Brevard Counties) within 1-2 hour drive. Shopping and entertainment is average and Real Estate is increasing and affordable.
