North Palm Beach County is full of great places! As is Martin County! Jupiter and Stuart are well worth a day trip or weekend!
Jupiter and Stuart are clean, beautiful towns with lots of green space and waterfront places. Here are just a few suggestions from Priscilla, who now lives in the Stuart area.
JUPITER SPOTS TO VISIT:
On the water, big tiki bar and side bar with stage...sit on the sand under the palm trees, watch the boats go by. Casual outdoor hangout with good bar fare.
1111 Love St. Jupiter - See pic below.
DOUBLE ROADS TAVERN
Nice food, seafood and fish menu, good live music several nights a week, and don't miss the SUNDAY JAZZ -- 10 to 15 piece ensembles jam away from 5 PM to 8 PM or later...indoor & outdoor bar.
251 US1 Jupiter
HARBOURSIDE -- CALAVERAS, BLUE, BRAVO, ETC.
On the north side of Indiantown Rd on the East side of the Intracoastal
Exit 87A from I95 and go east.
Open plazas and retail spots make up this beautiful complex along the Intracoastal. Favorite pitstops are the bar inside of the Tommy Bahamas store, the great Mexican restaurant, Calaveras, and BLUE -- the upscale martini bar and fine dining restaurant. Bravo Italian restaurant has a nice patio to sit on and take in the scenery. Sip, shop, stroll.
***For Priscilla's guided tour of Harbourside and a fun afternoon or evening, just contact her to arrange the tour for your group of 5 guests or more. From $17 per person.***
Sunset Cigar Lounge - Right beside Double Roads Tavern. Great atmosphere, fresh cigars (huge variety), Big TVs, bar area and lounge area, take your pick. Friendly staff - tell the bartender that Priscilla sent you. DJ/house music most nights from 10 PM on.

STUART SPOTS TO VISIT:
Downtown Stuart is super nice! A great variety of shops and dining experiences, and the Lyric Theatre! Here are some of Priscilla's fave places.
Waterview, casual fare, friendly staff, outdoor and indoor bar, an all around cool place to go!
In downtown Stuart, walking distance to several other bars, restaurants, and many shops.

LOU RONZO'S Italian Fusion Restaurant and Bar
This is a charming, classy eatery with delicious classic and modern Italian dishes. Featuring a full bar, additional seating on the patio, and Happy Hour five days a week. Also open for Lunch. In the heart of downtown Stuart at 301 S. Colorado Ave.
THE WATER BAR AT SPODOS (LOWER LEVEL)
Face the St. Lucie River and enjoy all kinds of cocktails and yummy appetizers! Great for Happy Hour or anytime! No frills, no live music, just a good waterfront bar.
131 SW Flagler Ave. Stuart
THE RIVERWALK CAFE
Fine dining and excellent food, with a cozy indoor bar. You'll feel like you're in Boston or somewhere "up north" in this brick walled, unFloridian restaurant. Great wine selection, fine wines, yummy seafood.
201 SW St. Lucie Ave. Stuart
BLACK MARLIN RESTAURANT
If you're a foodie, go here. 'Nuff said. Bar and tables, locals know this is the place to eat when friends come to visit.
53 SW Osceola St. Stuart
Sunset, sunset, sunset! Awesome waterfront bar at a marina, with live music most evenings during happy hour and good food. Photo opp! Just follow the waterfront walkway from The Boathouse, past the Water Bar, under the bridge til you reach the road -- cross it and you're at Sailor's Return. Make a pitstop at
PELICAN CAFE -- delicious affordable food and a "beach" under the bridge! Beer and wine only.
Sailor's Return: 625 SW Anchorage Way, Stuart
TERRA FERMATA - see pic at left.
Super cool, hippie-ish, sort of dead-headish, colorful outdoor bar under the trees, lots of various types of seating, beer and wine only, getting great live music. No food sold on site. Sometimes a cover charge. Very casual, cool atmosphere.
26 SE 6th St. Stuart
PORT SALERNO -- MANATEE ISLAND, THE GROVE DOCK BAR, PIRATE'S LOFT, SHRIMPERS AND TWISTED TUNA
Fun area in South Stuart -- just Google "Port Salerno" and spend a day or evening there. Waterfront tiki bars and restaurants in both directions --- great by day or night. Good bands at Manatee Island and Twisted Tuna on weekend evenings.
CONCHY JOE'S IN JENSEN BEACH
A landmark rustic bar and eatery on the river -- kind of like the Old Key Lime House in Lantana or Le Tub in Hollywood. Rambling wooden dock bar and live music several nights a week -- good food, fun servers -- just go!!
