    we love visiting preserves and parks and this one was nice too - very exciting to see a couple of eagle nests, on of a couple who just had chicks, another one of a 'teenager' bald who had left the parental nest - saw ducks and egret and butterflies too

    We found this walk to be very impactful and reflective, as we viewed several memorial monuments honoring our military branches, and individuals who have served our country through many conflicts, from the Revolutionary War to current events. It is free. It is handicapped accessible. It is worth a visit.

    Small enough to walk all the trails in a couple of hours, beautiful trees (the real Florida), many wildlife seen like hawk, hairy and pileated woodpeckers, little blue heron, iguana, green heron, warbler and agama lizards, all by a nice canal - really enjoyed our visit

    We had heard about Hop Life at a local restaurant who had their beers and decided to stop by one afternoon. This brewery is a true 'hidden gem'. Located in a business complex, Hop Life has some wonderful beers! Their food menu look good too but we just had a couple beverages. The place is very clean and the staff very friendly. Outside seating is also available. Can't wait to come back and try the food. Definitely worth a visit.

    We always attend a game here when visiting my folks in Vero Beach. It’s only a 30-40 minute ride. Great family event especially for the price. Took my family and my parents to a Saturday night game. Can’t be $14 a seat for section 11, 6 rows from the field. Concessions are reasonable too. Lots of family involvement and giveaways. Both of my sons received bobble heads, comic books, wrist bands, etc, all for free. We were a little disappointed the fireworks were cancelled, but all the free stuff clearly made up for it. See you next year.

    Spruce Bluff Preserve is 97 acres. In the 1990's a community of more than 60 homes was planned for the area but in 1995 the St. Lucie County saved the historic spot by buying the land and making it into one of the county's first preserves, The hiking trail is on the marsh and scrub land in between the houses off Southbend Boulevard along the North Fork of the St. Lucie River. This is one of the more interesting hiking trips I have taken because there is so much history here.

    If you take the trail from the parking lot about half a mile down you will come to the site that was a pioneer settlement and cemetery along the banks of the St. Lucie River. The trail itself was the roadway for the development that never happened. The area was settled in 1891 after the Second Seminole War ended in 1842. Spruce Bluff founder John Enos Fultz Jr. came from South Carolina to farm pineapples which did well in the sandy soil. Spruce Bluff was a community of several families with a school, post office and sawmill. To make $10 a month Fultz rowed the St. Lucie River to Stuart to deliver the mail to Stuart. In 1894 and 1895 a winter freeze killed the crops and the families moved out of the area. Fultz moved to Ft. Pierce where he became the first Clerk of the Circuit Court for St. Lucie County when it was created in 1905. To find the cemetery look for the two wooden posts on the side of the right hand trail that leads to a sandy trail that takes you to it. The cemetery is surrounded by a fence with a monument. It is owned privately but you are welcome to visit. The seven headstones of the Spruce Bluff pioneers buried inside the fence were vandalized so one monument was put up instead.

    If you take the trail behind the parking lot it leads to an Ais midden which was their trash dump. Middens are important because they can tell you a lot about the people who lived in the area. This midden has yielded fish bones during excavations. To get to the site you travel along a one mile trail. As you make your way down you come to two boardwalks that cross over the wetlands. The Ais were a tribe of Native Americans who inhabited the Atlantic Coast of Florida from present day Cape Canaveral to the St. Lucie Inlet. They became extinct in the 1760's when they were sold off for slaves or succumbed to disease. The best knowledge we have of these people came from Jonathan Dickinson's journal when he was taken prisoner by them. There is no sign for the mound. It's 20 feet high and 180 feet wide and may be hundred of thousands of years old. If you didn't know it was back there it would just look like a hill.

    In addition to the hiking trails which can also be biked there is canoe access. A saw a lot of birds on the trail as well as many adorable rabbits. It's an easy hike and the history of this area makes it a very special place to visit.

    The Civic Center is a festive place to visit during the Christmas holidays. Also, it is a clean, interesting center all year long. We received our covid vaccinations here, and it was well organized.

    I live nearby the marina, I enjoy sitting under a pavilion watching people fish, boating and kids in the playground. I especially love just watching the wildlife in and on the water, it's very relaxing and serene.

    Some signage would help in finding this, but once we did, we were glad we stopped in. It's all displayed nicely and is a great place to stop in.
