Stuart, Florida Attractions
Stuart, Florida, known as the "sailfish capital of the world," is on the southeast coast of Florida in Martin County and surrounded by water. According to Sue Hedgepeth at the Stuart Martin Chamber of Commerce, Stuart, Florida is a bedroom community to larger cities within a two-hour drive (e.g., Fort Lauderdale, Orlando). There are no high-rise buildings in the city because of a four-story maximum height ordinance.
