Back in February of 2015, we reported right here on our blog that, “In an article by Julianne Lowell from Smarter Travel, posted on the Huffington Post’s® Travel page, we are especially proud that our very own Stuart, Florida made the list of top beach towns in Florida.”

Again in April 2015, we reported, “Although Stuart, Florida has been recognized by several prestigious travel magazines over the years; just recently Bess Lovejoy published an article on® that mentions our very own Stuart, Florida as one of the best small towns in America.”

In August 2015, we were especially excited to announce that in an article posted by Victoria Winkler, on®, that Stuart was mentioned as one of the most charming small towns in Florida. Winkler posts, “These small towns are perfect for anyone looking to explore the history and charm of Old Florida. Find the one closest to you and start planning your next day trip.”

We also were not surprised to find out that Stuart, Florida was listed in an article by Caroline Picard of House Beautiful® that our fair city made the list of the top 50 most beautiful small towns in America! Picard lists Stuart 9th, and writes, “It neighbors the most bio-diverse lagoon in the Northern hemisphere, so it’s only fitting that Stuart also boasts the Florida Oceanographic Coastal Center.”
