I have lived here for almost 2 years and have never had any issues. Except for that tie someone stole my license plate! The police were very nice and were very helpful! I love how close I am to Hutchinson Island. The beaches, restaurants are limited but the food is great! Overall I am happy with my time in fort pierce!

I've been living here all my childhood. It's a great place to start my career. We have a very affordable college in the area and because the city isn't too big I have the chance to meet the local leaders. I've developed a great relationship with the school members, business owners and the people around. I plan on living here in future. The great thing about this place is I already have my job waiting for me! The population isn't too big or too small which fits what I like.
My experience in fort Pierce was pretty good but also it was boring as well. The city had alot of history behind it but many people may not have wanted to pay attention to that and also the city was just another small town with nothing to do and the least of activities. One thing I did love about Fort Pierce was my religious background Bass Temple Church of God in Christ this was a place where I would find so much peace, joy and encouragement. Also just to know more of God's Word would strengthen me to do better in my walk with Christ. In the city of Fort Pierce I would love to see more fun activities and programs being created so that many children will be able to have something to do with their free time rather than being on electronics all day.
