Traveling to Stuart Florida

Stuart, Florida is dubbed “The Sailfish Capital of the World.” Landmarks include the historic Lyric Theatre, the Elliott Museum and the House of Refuge. Whether its antiques, artwork, jewelry, fine dining/sidewalk cafes, or trendy shopping, you’ll find whatever you’re looking for in the historic downtown Stuart, with its scenic river walk, graceful fountains and a historical museum housed in a turn of the century feed store.
There are so many things to do in Stuart, on the east coast of Florida. With an average of about 236 sunny days per year and fabulous attractions, it is no wonder that so many people love to visit Stuart.The ‘flavors’ of Stuart and the greater Martin County area offers something for everyone: beach side and coastal towns where outdoor activities and nature take center stage; historic towns with tree-lined streets, quaint sidewalk cafes, restaurants, art galleries, charming antique stores and brand name stores you’re familiar with; ‘Old Florida’ towns where rodeos and orange groves, as well as cowboys still exist; and an old fishing village where fishermen still bring their catch to market each day and where world-class sport fishing tournaments are hosted every year. Get a different view of the area on a scenic cruise on the St. Lucie Canal, or take a picturesque drive along Jensen Beach. Our Stuart hotel also puts you close to the Hobe Sound Nature Center and Wildlife Refuge and Jonathan Dickinson State Park, where you can stroll along beautiful nature trails or take a canoe out to a deserted peninsula beach.
Stuart has two seasons – a hot and wet season (late May through October) and the warm and dry season (November through April). Like other areas in central and southern Florida, there is a distinct change in the mean direction in prevailing winds between these two seasons: During the wet season prevailing winds are from southeast (tropical) while during the dry season they are from the northwest (continental). While the wet season (summer) in Stuart can bring brief, but heavy rain (August averages over 8 inches/800 mm), the dry season (winter) can be so severe that often forest and brush fires are a concern, and water restrictions are imposed. Like most locations in Florida, Stuart enjoys a high number of sunny days, averaging 2900 hrs annually.
