The small-town charm of Stuart sure has paid off.
An article in O Magazine — Oprah Winfrey’s publication — touts the Treasure Coast locale as one of “60 charming American towns you haven’t heard of, but should visit ASAP.”
Stuart ranked No. 6 in the O Magazine story, which lists small towns from Alaska to Pennsylvania. It’s one of three Florida locations mentioned.
Editors of this month’s issue invite readers to “hit the roads less traveled” with their pick of 60 low-key cities.
The O Magazine staff writes: “Stuart is formally known as the Sailfish Capital of the World, thanks to its close proximity to the St. Lucie River and the Indian River Lagoon. The small town’s tropical climate is perfect for snowbirds who enjoy getting away during the bitter winter months, but are looking for a less popular destination.” The magazine links to the city’s official website, too.
It’s not the first article of distinction for the “Sailfish Capital of the World.” Stuart’s been named one of the happiest seaside towns, one of the best small towns and one of the most charming small towns.
Nestled between the St. Lucie River and Indian River Lagoon, Stuart offers great opportunities for water sports such as boating, fishing and kayaking, but it’s also jam-packed with history — it’s 105 years old! — and has a well-established arts community.
