A simulated surf park may be on its way to the Treasure Coast as part of a $595 million development plan in Fort Pierce. The “Willow Lakes” proposal would bring an estimated 800 residential homes, 600 hotel rooms and 400,000 square feet of retail space along with thousands of potential jobs.

Once thought to be extinct, this beautiful butterfly is local and flourishing in our own backyard. 

The Atala is a small colorful butterfly in the family Lycaenidae. It is found in southeastern Florida, the Bahamas, Cuba, the Cayman Islands, and on other Caribbean islands. Its coloration and habits are unique among butterflies within its scale.

10. Kingfish

Some may wonder why kingfish even made this list, but the truth is that South Florida consumes a ridiculous amount of it. Also known as king mackeral, kingfish is not the best fish to eat as a main course since it tastes quite “gamey” because of its high oil content.
