Where the treasure began.

The story of the Treasure Coast began over 300 years ago when a fleet of 11 Spanish ships wrecked offshore between the St. Lucie River and Cape Canaveral. These ships were sent to collect new wealth from the American possessions of the Spanish Empire and bring it to Spain. On their way back, this treasure-carrying fleet was sunk by the winds of a hurricane, scattering gold, silver and jewels over the seafloor. To this day, these treasures can sometimes still be found washed up on the shores by lucky beachgoers, giving the region its well-deserved name.

What’s your favorite hidden spot?

I love driving down Powerline Grade Road at DuPuis State Park. It is 14 miles from the entrance of the park to end of the road. There are always lots of alligators to view there and often come across pigs, deer, bobcats, coyote and if you’re really lucky, a panther.
