About Fort Pierce
Often called the "Sunrise City," Fort Pierce is part of the Treasure Coast, a stretch of land from St. Lucie Inlet to Sebastian Inlet along Florida's Atlantic coast. Natural and artificial reefs make for good fishing and diving. The Indian River Lagoon Estuary provides a haven for more than 4,000 plant and animal species. Visit the revitalized waterfront downtown area, which has retained its old Florida charm. It offers contemporary shopping, dining, great fishing and a range of entertainment and activities such as the NAVY SEAL Museum, Farmers' Market, Bike Night, Friday Fest, Jazz Society and the city-owned and -operated 1,200-seat Sunrise Theatre for the Performing Arts.
