I just got an offer for a job in Stuart, FL. I'm moving from the St. Paul, MN but I've only been there for 4 months. Any Suggestions for where to live? I've typically picked nicer areas to live. My rent now is $1500 and I'ld like to stay around that price if possible. I prefer low maintance living (Condos or town homes). My wife likes to shop...I MEAN SHOP, and needs to be close to good shopping areas. We are both in our early 30s and like to socialize and have a night life. What do people in their 30s do in the area for fun? Also we are both of Indian(dot) nationality and are curious if there is any Indian shops/restaurants near the Stuart area. Any suggestions would be a great help. Thanks

Stuart generally has rentals at a higher price than Port St Lucie does. The main reason is that during the building boom PSL built homes. Martin Co refunsed to. That leaves you with fewer newer homes to look at for rent in the Martin Co (Stuart or Palm City) area.

For $1500, or less, you can get a lot more in the Port St Lucie area.

Shopping? Well you have the Jensen Beach mall and old Stuart, but for major shopping you will want to go to Palm Beach Gardens Mall- PGA Blvd off I95. You're talking Bloomies, Nordstrom, a big Macys, and lots lots more.

I've heard excellent reviews from personal friends of mine about the service and authentic food at a certain Indian Restaurant in southern St. Lucie County (PSL). Can't speak as to other shops.

Default Welcome PupaMonkey

We are building a house in Tradition and can't wait to move to PSL.

Don't pay one bit of attention to SeoGorilla as I have yet to see one positive thing come out of his or her mouth in the several months that I have been reading this board to learn about the area where I will live. Thank you FlaLady for reporting him/her, hopefully he will be booted off, and if it comes back like a bad virus under another name, we will certainly recognize the pattern.

PupaMonkey, I am sure you will find a great place to live near the shopping and nightlife you are looking for. Good luck in your new position!

Thumbs up Finally

Due to a hiring freeze, the company that was offering me a position was unable to keep an offer on the table for me. With the new year they are asking me to come down for a few days to check out the city and reoffer me the position. Is there any places that a late 20s couple can do in the area that is fun? Bars, Dance clubs, Shopping? Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated. What is the best way to travel into the Stuart area? I'm coming from Minnesota. Thanks

There is not alot to do for your age group in stuart, there are a few small places in historical downtown stuart but that's it. Stuart is mostly casual and chain places. You'll want to go south 20 miles for a better mall, restaurants and nightlife, and west palm beach with cityplace is about 35 miles. Look into the newer developments along cove road and 76/kanner hwy. Those are close to I95 for your urge to socialize upscale and you can go north to psl too. Easy to get to us1 from there which is the main drag. Clubs and such, if you are feeling the need to really go all out there is always palm beach itself. Of course you have that whole driving after drinking thing to worry about.

Fly into palm beach international.
