Map of Port St Lucie

Air Travel

The closest airport to Port St Lucie is Palm Beach International (airport code PBI). However, more flights or direct flights may be found through Ft Lauderdale (airport code FLL) or Orlando International Airport (code MCO).

PBI is about 60 miles south and FLL is about 100 miles south of Port St Lucie. Most travelers take I-95 north to come to PSL. Click for map.

Car Rental

Most of my customers prefer the bigger names such as Hertz or Enterprise to rent a car due to more selections and a larger fleet.

Both PBI and FLL offer on-site rentals and travelers no longer need to leave the airport to rent a car.

Hotels

Probably the most important part of the trip – where you will rest your head at night. Due to seasonal changes, I won’t say which hotel is the cheapest but I can give you some of my customer’s recommendations (and some of my own).

  • Holiday Inn Express in St Lucie West
    Sally from CT stayed here when she was looking for a home and said “best price for location. New, super clean, free breakfast, and great staff.”
  • Residence Inn by Marriott in St Lucie West
    Winson and Maribeth said this hotel was great because of the location being next to good restaurants and helped take away some of the stressors of home hunting experience. “All rooms have a full kitchen and the staff were great.”
  • Holiday Inn in Port St Lucie (East Side of US1)
    Olinda and her husband stayed here because of the hotel’s location to the property they were buying near the East Side of town.
  • Homewood Inn and Suites by Hilton in Tradition
    I’ve personally toured this hotel on grand opening night (02.05.10) and was thoroughly impressed. It rivals Residence Inn in SLW in that it is brand-new and accommodates the extended traveler. All rooms have their own kitchen and they feel more like apartments or condos rather than a hotel.

Dining

Food – The best part of the trip! So where are the best local recommendations?
I’ve referred these dining experiences with much success to customers in the past:

  • Berry Fresh Cafe
    Fabulous breakfast (try the strawberry and cream cheese stuffed French toast if it’s on the specials menu board or the El Rancho Omelette). I haven’t had lunch here but I’m sure it’s good. I’m a huge breakfast fan so I order breakfast even if it’s lunchtime when I come here!
  • Bagel Brothers of NY in Tradition Square
    The best bagels in town – guaranteed! Another favorite breakfast place of mine as well as a good deli for lunch.
  • Key Lime Cafe in downtown Stuart
    If you’re going to look at our beaches then stop here for lunch. Sit under hand-made private tiki huts and feel the breeze come off the river. Their wraps are delish and their sangria is the best way to unwind in the late afternoon. Live music on the weekends. Then go check out the shops in downtown Stuart.
  • Shindig Restaurant and Pub
    Good place for dinner, drinks, and live music on the weekend.
  • Sushi Naiya
    Upscale sushi restaurant with very big menu.
  • Sake Too in Tradition Square
    (Yes, more suhi) Smaller restaurant as compared to the last one but it’s fun to eat in Tradition Square. They have a special section for vegetarian dining too! You’ll like the ambient lights in the restaurant as you sip on a cup of hot saki.
  • Hurricane Grill & Wings
    Best place for chicken wings. “Chris’s Hurricane Grill” started in downtown Fort Pierce and is now a national franchise and is expanding across the state of Florida. They have a zillion wing sauces and their garlic parmesan fries are to die for.
  • Pueblo Viejo
    Fast, tasty Mexican food.
  • Wicked Burger
    Just opened in Jan 2010. Fun place to eat outside during the day or have a burger and beer at night.
  • Robinson’s Steakhouse
    Fine dining at it’s finest in the heart of Port St Lucie.
  • Vine and Barley
    The newest, coolest wine and beer experience. Go here before or after dinner for a little social drinking. Use a credit-card type card to plug in to the “wine bar” and receive a taste, half glass, or full glass of over 75 different types of wines. There are over 50 microbrewed beers from around the world with 24 on tap! You’ll be a fan the minute you walk in.
