In a recent Google post, downtown Stuart was one of 10 “Best Downtowns” in Florida. There is a definite charm with the number of shops, café’s, restaurants and the inviting waterfront boardwalk. The area was once known as “Potsdam,” but the name was misconstrued to “Dam-pots.” Thus, the town was changed to a local neighbor named “Stuart” near the turn of the 20th century.

It was once said the downtown Stuart has a “walking problem, not a parking problem.” Certain times of the day it is tough to find parking near your intended target. To help matters, the City of Stuart has added a free tram service if you are lucky to catch it. There is sometimes parking down near Flagler Park and at Wells Fargo Bank. A number of streets have a three-hour limit on parking. Look for the signs if you have such a space. There is a parking officer that will enforce parking with a ticket. Lately, this officer is enforcing “No Trucks on the left-side” on Osceola Street. Many new arrivals miss these signs.

Sunday brings a Farmers Market to Flagler Park from 9:00 to 2:00. It is also on Sunday that a band plays at 4:00 along the downtown waterfront.

The key to Confusion Corner is to go slow, follow the lines and the person in front of you. Never, ever put yourself in the position of stopping on the railroad tracks. Brightline trains will definitely run you over.

If you are in the mood, a walk along the waterfront boardwalk will bring smiles. It is a rather long boardwalk that stretches from the small Colorado park all the way across and under the railroad to Sailors Restaurant and marina. At night there are small lights along the railing to guide you. We have found the sunrises to be quite stunning.

Naming a few recommended restaurants would not be fair. There are over 20 restaurants in walking distance. There are four restaurants directly on the St. Lucie River. There is a restaurant for everyone’s budget.

A Stuart Heritage Museum is near Flagler Park if you are so inclined to learn more about this area that dates back to circa 1890’s. There are some visitors that make it to the enlightening Elliot Museum, Florida Oceanographic Coastal Center and House of Refuge on Hutchinson Island. There is a certain charm about Stuart that brings people back time after time.

If you found this review “helpful” in any way, please press “Thumbs-up” to let me know.

Nice walkway along the river. Several restaurants and places to dock your boat. We had lunch at the waterfront restaurant and it was lovely. You can also walk around downtown Stuart

Walked the entire Riverwalk. It was a long walk. Beautiful and refreshing. A brisk jaunt allowed us to burn off our lunch. Would definitely do it again.

Fabulous walk can walk a long time or short but no railings along boardwalk so not child safe or even dog safe unless everyone is close in stroller or leash. Easy to park. Then walk through town of Stuart.

Enjoyable stroll and great lunch at Waterfront with nice view. Short staffed at start of day so meal took awhile to arrive. Wine and comfy seating made it not matter!

This was a neat waterfront area to take a walk on. There are some big lizards around that are pretty cool. There are restaurants and shops close by.

Looking for a clean, quiet place to get some sun, fresh air and exercise? This is the place for you. The Riverwalk provides walkers a lot of waterfront views as well as access to some top restaurants in the area and an alternative to shopping at the great shoppes of Stuart.
