There are plenty of reasons that people choose to make Martin County, Florida their home, and Palm City real estate is some of the most desirable in the area. As close as Palm City is to the hustle and bustle of West Palm Beach, there is just enough distance to offer the peace, serenity and the feel of small-town Florida life.

Plenty of tourists would gladly spend their off-time in a community that offers lots of sunshine, world-class golf and exotic wildlife. With proximity to one of the world’s loveliest beaches, it’s no wonder that Palm City homeowners opt for a “staycation.” It’s not just the peace and quiet of Palm City that’s attractive to residents. This South Florida community is filled with fun things to do! Get ready to start your South Florida vacation, right here on the Treasure Coast!

Beachside Wildlife in Palm City

If you’ve got a home in Palm City, you’re not far from the beach. Sea turtle nesting season spans from May 15th– October 31st, and the young hatchling’s journey to the waves is quite a sight to see. Visitors and locals alike look forward to this annual event and South Florida’s beaches are some of the sea turtle’s most productive nesting sites.

Palm City neighborhoods are filled with diverse plant and wildlife, and every community has its own unique feel. Sea life enthusiasts will enjoy Bay Pointe. This waterfront community offers plenty of waterfront views and access to all of the great schools, shopping and dining that Martin County has to offer.

Orchid Bay is a gated community in Palm City that’s filled with unique homes. Tennis courts, a playground, private ponds and even a gazebo surround this one-of-a-kind neighborhood, making it perfect for growing families and retirees. The spacious private lots in this Palm City Community range from ½ acre to over an acre, the perfect size to welcome Florida wildlife, including beautiful birds.

Birdwatchers of all backgrounds enjoy the sights of Palm City. Martin county is home to Eastern Bluebirds and the sometimes daunting Sandhill Crane. The Florida Scrub Jay is a unique bird that is only found in Florida. It has an unusual partnership with the Gopher Tortoise and these species are known for letting naturalists know if a scrub habitat is healthy. Residents of Palm City might also spot the occasional Bald Eagle! In fact, Florida is home to more Bald Eagles than any other state besides Alaska.

From reptiles to rabbits, Florida wildlife draws nature lovers to Martin County, and this is one of the reasons for its “staycation” reputation. With just a little planning, residents can schedule a wildlife tour, boat or kayak adventure, or even an evening sea turtle watch.

Endless Recreation Opportunities

Palm City is home to golf, golf and more golf! There are plenty of multi-level opportunities to swing a club, surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery imaginable. The Evergreen Golf Course and Driving Range is situated among nearly 300 one-acre home lots in Palm City. This championship golf course offers a peaceful yet challenging game.

Love fishing? Salt and freshwater fishing is a popular sport among locals and visitors alike. Fishing charters leaving from the Palm City area are abundant and the entire County is known for its many scenic and abundant fishing spots. There’s no need for Palm City anglers to travel when there is so much to experience, right at home!

If water parks are more your style, there’s still no need to leave Palm City. Sailfish Splash Water Park offers a 1,000 foot lazy river, waters slides, lap and zero entry pools and an interactive splash playground.

If you choose a Palm City home, you’ll be just a short drive from Palm Beach County. The Palm Beach Zoo at Dreher Park is open 7 days a week, and is home to exotic animals, fun shows and an interactive fountain that is popular with young visitors. Another popular local destination is Lion Country Safari. This iconic drive-through safari park also boasts an amusement area with rides and a water park.

Of course, no “staycation” would be complete without great shopping and dining. Fortunately, Palm City residents have access to both. Just down the road, downtown Stuart is known for its eclectic downtown, where you can enjoy shops, a great meal and even a show at the Lyric Theater. The historic theater hosts local and international dance, theater and music acts.

If it’s sports you’re after, you won’t want to miss a MLB Spring Training or Minor League Game! Palm City homeowners can enjoy games in Jupiter or Port St. Lucie. In fact, these games are so popular that baseball fans from around the country come to experience the magic, close up.
