With a fantastic canal waterway this community is a great place to call home. Enjoy the natural preserve of the North fork river with future shops and cafes under construction along the City's Riverwalk. The European influence on early Florida is apparent throughout St. Lucie County and in its newest center, Verano. The Spanish who originally explored the area provided the region with the name it also happens to share with a famous Italian town and anthem – Santa Lucia. Verano’s name is Spanish for summer, and that is what its residents of Port St. Lucie will experience 365 days a year – a never-ending summertime full of fun and relaxation, designed to indulge your interests and make every day a new discovery.
