The question is not “Why should I take a road trip to Martin County?” The question is: Why shouldn’t you?
With 22 miles of Atlantic shoreline, this charming hidden gem of the South Florida coast offers everything, from beach relaxation and wilderness adventures to boutique shopping and seaside dining. Whether you’re seeking a romantic respite or a family vacation, Martin County is a dream.
Roadtrippers looking to absorb the local culture can visit one of the many galleries, museums and historical sites in Stuart, Jensen Beach, Port Salerno, and Hobe Sound—there’s even a scuba/snorkeling tour of a shipwreck site—or spend the day shopping at the local boutiques scattered throughout the historic downtowns.
For those looking for a more rugged experience, the area offers no shortage of natural wonders begging to be explored. Hike, kayak, bike, birdwatch—or just find a remote spot on the beach and nap the day away.
At the end of each day, taste the local flavors at one of Martin County’s oceanfront restaurants.
If you have the kiddos, there’s plenty to do with them: Observe the area’s logger head sea turtles or feed the stingrays; go fishing or lounge on the beach; hit a waterpark or enjoy an outdoor concert on the Riverwalk. In Martin County, it’s all for the taking.
