Relax and Reconnect at Fort Pierce Inlet State Park

    By Lauren Tjaden

    Florida has no shortage of places to take your shoes off and feel the sand between your toes and gaze out over a blue ocean, but Fort Pierce Inlet is something special. With a paved bike path, wildlife viewing, snorkeling and scuba diving, the park is also one of the best surfing spots on the east coast — and the Oak Hammock Trail leads visitors through one of the few remaining oak hammocks on a South Florida barrier island.
