Why this is the year to reacquaint yourself with Hutchinson Shores Resort & Spa.

Haven’t been to Hutchinson Island, Florida, in a while? Here’s a map to the latest bounty, from pizza-making and craft-cocktail classes at Hutchinson Shores Resort & Spa to new nature centers and museums along the surrounding Treasure Coast.

New at Hutchinson Shores Resort & Spa

Comedy Nights

Catch the latest in laughs without leaving the comfort of your accommodations when staying at Hutchinson Shores. The resort is adding to its line-up of comedians delivering one-liners and much more in the oceanfront Sea Turtle Ballroom. Turn it into dinner and a show by dining beforehand at Drift Kitchen & Bar, where dishes range from crispy calamari and hand-crafted pasta to Panzanella salads and blue-crab-encrusted grouper – no joke.

Pirates of the Treasure Coast

Argh, matey! Bring your best pirate talk and a shiver-me-timbers attitude to the resort this summer, when “Pirates of the Treasure Coast” debuts with interactive activities and character events for some family-friendly fun.

Pizza-Making and Cocktail-Mixing Classes

What’s better than a hot slice of Margherita pizza and an ice-cold margarita? Riding the latest trend of teaching guests how to recreate some of the most delicious discoveries at their destinations, Hutchinson Shores now offers culinary classes. Guests can take advantage of the on-site brick oven to learn the art of pizza-making, or head to the bar where a mixologist offers lessons in libations.

Wellness Every Way

Yoga on the beach, CrossFit-style classes, and rhythmic drum circles are just a few of the newest additions to fitness center offerings at the resort, where a state-of-the-art fitness center opens to miles of running along pristine white sands. But there’s no need for a workout to justify some time at the Spa, where a new blend of CBD-infused balance oil, restore balm and relief balm by Zents create massages enhanced by the benefits of CBD.

New in Jensen Beach and Stuart, Florida

Ocean EcoCenter

Protecting paradise has been the mission of the Florida Oceanographic Society, and now, it gets even prettier at the 57-acre marine life nature center with a new $6.5 million Ocean EcoCenter. The addition includes new classrooms, an event space, a kid’s waterplay area, and all-new exhibits in five different galleries, exploring Florida’s estuaries and waters stories.

Corning Museum of Glass Mobile Hot Shop


You’ve seen pop-up shops. Now marvel at a hot shop presented by the Corning Museum of Glass. Rolling out for the ArtsFest in downtown Stuart on February 8 and 9, 2020, and other future events, the Mobile Hot Shop features glassblowing demonstrations from some of the best artisans in the county working on unique equipment to recreate a state-of-the-art studio environment.

The Elliott Museum

There’s always something new at the Elliott Museum, whose rotating exhibits in the Changing Exhibitions Gallery accompanies a variety of collections ranging from vintage cars and baseball artifacts to Americana. Carve out time to experiment in the art studio, learn about local philanthropists, shop at the Museum Store – or sip and learn during the Curators & Cocktails series on February 11 and March 10, 2020.

Baseball Spring Training

February and March mean baseball fever in Florida when 15 Major League Baseball teams flock to the Sunshine State for spring training. Catch new players and prospects – and perhaps a souvenir ball – while participating in the 100-year-old tradition that draws more than 1.5 million fans each year. Shining diamonds for the Florida Marlins, New York Mets, St. Louis Cardinals, and Houston Astros are within an hour’s drive of Hutchinson Shores Resort & Spa.
