Stuart, Florida is a beautiful coastal city off the Atlantic coast. Although the city is small in population (16k residents), it is big on fun! Check out a few of our favorite Stuart attractions below:
1. Lyric Theatre
The Lyric Theatre opened originally in 1926, and has been everything from a silent movie house to a place of worship to what it is today.
