"On the verge of discovery, Fort Pierce has been compared to other notable small towns with charming main streets. Main Street, Fort Pierce has seven National Register of Historic Places locations downtown, which includes the Sunrise Theatre, Moore's Creek Bridge, and the site Fort Pierce is named for, the original Army post during the Seminole War. There's also a ghost walking tour through the historic area! Events like the town's annual celebration, Friday Fest, and its annual reverse raffle auction keep the downtown area lively, along with a farmer's market—one of the largest in the state—that brings nearly 5,000 people to the main street on Saturdays."
