Palm City is located in western Martin County and was founded and developed in 1912 by Charles C. Chillingworth. Pineapples, oranges and grapefruit were grown at a “Demonstration Farm” on present-day Martin Highway to show farmers what they could expect if they settled in the new city.
Palm City is a peaceful community with a distinctive identity where the golf and tennis are great and the fishing is legendary. Fish abounds in the fertile waters of Palm City. Fishing from the docks or offshore for snook as well as seatrout, kings, mackerel, grouper, snapper and wahoo is plentiful. Thirty-six holes of championship golf surround the community, as well as several tennis courts and Olympic sized pools. Horseback riding, bicycle riding, hiking and nearby river access is also available.
Palm City offers a pristine environment where you can escape the crowds and relax in the peace and quiet of nature, with all the conveniences of home.
