Weathering fairways

With more than 20 golf courses ranging from the novice skill level to high-end pro, the region has a golfing experience for everyone. And there are some pretty sweet benefits to golfing in the high humidity and temperatures.

“Summer is a great time for golf in St. Lucie County,” says Charlotte Bireley, county tourism and marketing director. “Because ...

Summertime bargains par for the courses

Welcome to the summer edition of Port St. Lucie Magazine.

There was a time in Port St. Lucie, once a seasonal refuge for many northerners seeking to avoid the cold winter, when it almost seemed as if things folded up in the summer. Not anymore.

Now businesses stay open year-round and some former snow birds even stopped their migration to the north. Truth is, Florida summers aren’t so bad. Port St. Lucie’s hottest month, August, for example, has average highs of 89 degrees and lows of 75...

Legacy Park at Tradition

Kudos continue for Sansone Group industrial park

Port St. Lucie’s new industrial park at Tradition garnered an armload of awards in 2021. The 425-acre space is home to FedEx Ground, and soon will be home to an Amazon delivery station, a warehouse and distribution center for Florida food distributor Cheney Brothers, and more businesses are coming.

The Class A industrial park, owned by Sansone Group, was awarded...

Meghan Wood, the new owner of The Book Exchange

New edition

A decade ago, Meghan Wood was secretly exchanging romance novels with a close friend. The excitement of receiving a new book helped her interest in literature blossom. Little did she know that she would be the owner of a bookstore that also thrived on the exchange of books.

The Book Exchange, which has been part of the Port St. Lucie community for more than 20 years, has a new owner. At the young age of 23, Wood is now the new owner of the local shop...

Edward Halleran

The ‘DIAMOND’ MINER

Ed Halleran grew up as one of five children in a large family on the south shore of Long Island, New York. His Irish father was one of 10, as was his Italian mother. He can vividly recall digging for clams on the beaches just south of the village of Babylon.

“Those are really some of the most beautiful beaches in the world,” Halleran says. “I think living there really got me started on exploring this beautiful country.”

Cris Adams

The VOLUNTEER EXTRAORDINAIRE

Cris Adams’ home in Port St. Lucie is filled with color and beauty. Blue glassware in the yard, in the house. Paintings everywhere, even the front porch. Adams herself is like one of her collectible teapots — delicate yet imminently functional.

Born in Syracuse, New York, Adams had three brothers. Her father was in the insurance business...

 

Larry Allman

The YOGIC DIPLOMAT

Port St. Lucie resident Larry Allman has lived a life of both intensity and calm, from being a Los Angeles attorney to the solitude of swimming laps to train for competition, with world travel and yoga woven throughout.

How did a boy from Delaware end up in California, then Switzerland, then Port St. Lucie?

A published author, Allman understands the value of description...

US Sailing Center in Jensen Beach

On course forever

The sport of sailing has always been dominated by wealthy white males but the US Sailing Center in Jensen Beach has all hands on deck to shake up the status quo.

“Looking out from the center I see 10 girls out there, rigging boats right now,” says Alan Jenkinson, executive director of the US Sailing Center of Martin County.

He’s the one plotting the course for change, starting with local kids...

gopher tortoise

Our Town

A gopher tortoise makes its way across a lawn at Port St. Lucie Botanical Gardens. Tortoises are vegetarians and eat foliage, flowers and fruits. With front legs adapted for digging, tortoises create extensive burrows in which they live. There, they are protected from the heat of summer and the cold of winter, as well as from forest fires and predators. Gopher tortoises are a threatened species and are protected under Florida state law.
