When the treasure-laden Spanish fleet sank in a storm off south Florida’s coast in 1715, it gave rise to a search for gold and artifacts that continues to this day. Because of that history, over 50 years ago the name Treasure Coast was applied to the area as a marketing strategy to attract land buyers.
The Treasure Coast is made up of three counties, Indian River to the north, St. Lucie and Martin to the south. People who live along the Treasure Coast can count on the warm climate, abundant waterways, unspoiled sandy beaches and the easy-going small town atmosphere for their quality of life.
There are over 25 small towns and communities, most of them with less than 20,000 population, The Treasure Coast is one of the most naturally beautiful areas in the state with the Atlantic Ocean, rivers, lakes and numerous waterways residents have access to the Intercoastal Waterway, Lake Okeechobee and the gulf coast, and are never far from water.
The Treasure Coast boasts jobs, hospitals, universities, biomedical research facilities, shopping centers, restaurants, cultural and sporting events that suit everyone’s taste. For major attractions, Miami to the south and Orlando to the north are only a 2 hour drive with easy access to I-95 or the Turnpike for commuting.
The Treasure Coast, a wonderful place to call home!
