Living in a small town is something people often take for granted. But growing up in a tight-knit community like Stuart is worth reminiscing about.

With our beautiful waterways, award-winning downtown area, and friendly seaside neighbors, it's no wonder so many locals choose to call Stuart their "forever" home. 

Here are 11 signs you grew up in the small town of Stuart.

1. You not only have a favorite beach, but a favorite spot on the beach.


2. You have a go-to meal at every local restaurant, because you've eaten there so many times.


3. You have every alternate route memorized… You’ll need them when the snowbirds come.


4. You remember when you could only get Chick-Fil-A at the mall's food court.


5. You went to the Environmental Studies Center on school field trips… every year.
