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.
The overall atmosphere is relaxing, however, everyone in the area seems to be running on their own time rather than making efforts to move with people around them. Too many business open up late due to the demographic which is somewhat problematic especially when you run into a bind first thing in the morning before work or school.
