Hobe Sound Commerce & Culture
Hobe Sound’s restaurants may not necessarily be white-tablecloth establishments, but they nonetheless serve up fresh meals in friendly atmospheres. There are a few local businesses in town—primarily spots to pick up the basics—but any substantial shopping or entertainment will have to take place in Jupiter or Stewart. Luckily, those places are but mere minutes away. If you’re aching for a more metropolitan motif, the Palm Beaches are only a bit farther south, with Miami an easy drive as well. To experience Florida nature at its finest, however, stick with Hobe Sound. Blowing Rocks Preserve is a limestone monolith where you’ll see breaking waves spray water toward the sky. The Loxahatchee River is a designated National Wild and Scenic River; kayakers come from all over to paddle on its route through prehistoric forests. There’s a lot that sparkles along the Treasure Coast, but Hobe Sound is the true hidden gem.
