Fort Pierce has a long and storied history with the Navy Seals. From being the training ground for the precursor's the Frogmen, this is the best place to pay tribute to our heroes and learn their history. Have you thanked a veteran today? While not all are called to serve we can at least learn their stories and never forget the sacrifices they've made to keep us free and safe. Have you visited this immersive museum? Done the obstacle course? Let us know in the comments!

Have you ever eaten at Conchy Joe's? What's your pick of the menu.
Big brand coffee shops are a dime a dozen. You can find Starbucks or Dunkin anywhere and that’s all well and good but what if you want beans that weren’t brewed to taste the same but ones that are brewed to stand out? This is where 1971 Roasters comes in. They’ve been open for over a year and are located in the middle of tradition and they pride themselves on their diverse blends from multiple regions. This means that your drink is not going to taste the same every time you visit but if you love coffee like I do you are happy to try something new. The decor is industrial but comfortable.

Sunshine, music, and mini-golf. Can you want more?. Everything about this day was perfection, although it did not start that way. It was a Sunday, and I was feeling the blues. My son called me up and asked me if I was free to venture out with him. I asked him what he had in mind? He stated he wasn't sure yet and would get back to me. My mind wandered as to what he thought was fun. I was not really in the mood for much. I was basking in what I considered my justified misery. However, we have two loves in common- taking drives to new places and cranking the rock and roll.
