What Bert Has To Say About Port St. Lucie Metro Area

The towns of Port St. Lucie and Fort Pierce are among several that make up the south end of the so-called “Treasure Coast,” named for old Spanish shipwrecks lying off the coast. These are smaller, comfortable, more laid-back residential communities than the bustling beach cities farther south. Port St. Lucie is a small, business-friendly but largely nondescript community just south and inland from Fort Pierce along U.S. 1.
