The City of Port St. Lucie is proud to be a hometown where people live, learn, work and play, and celebrate all of life’s opportunities and dreams.
With 167,000 residents, Port St. Lucie is Florida’s ninth largest city by population. It occupies an area of 116 square miles in St. Lucie County on Florida’s east coast, about 50 miles north of West Palm Beach, half way between Miami and Orlando.
Average temperatures range from 64 degrees in February to 82 degrees in August, making the city and surrounding area a tourist destination and nature lover’s paradise. The attractive environment and top-rated park system stand out in southeast Florida, and the unspoiled river, top-rated golf courses and growing arts and performance community are key reasons for the city’s growth in recent years.
