For those of us who like the beach, but can't just sit around ALL day, Fort Pierce is a great destination!  Fort Pierce is steeped in history and rich in opportunities to get out and do more! 
Fort Pierce is within St. Lucie County in Florida.  It is about 1 1/2 hours south of the Orlando International Airport and about an hour from the West Palm Beach International Airport.  If you have your own wings or are of means to charter your own wings, St. Lucie County also has an International Airport!  As a matter of fact, you can "fly and drive" from St. Lucie County's International Airport. Well, fly and golf.  You see you can make arrangements with the nearby Fairwinds Golf Course to pick you up in a golf cart from your airplane.  Pretty neat!
Check out the spectacular golf opportunities in the Fort Pierce Things to Do section.
