Visit Apalachicola in Florida’s Forgotten Coast

Occasionally lost in all the glitz and glamour of modern-day Miami and upscale communities like Palm Beach is a unique charm and down-home atmosphere of Old Florida. “Forgotten Florida“, also known as Florida’s “Forgotten Coast“, is a relatively undiscovered treasure plucked from the 19th century along with its neighbor across a causeway, St. George Island.

You’ll delight in consuming fresh oysters or a famous crabcake sandwich from any number of restaurants served by boats on their daily prowl from Apalachicola’s harbor. Afterward, take a stroll through the pretty little downtown area with its shady residential streets. The village is the kind of place where you imagine yourself on your front porch, cooling off under a languid ceiling fan with ice-cold lemonade or sweet tea.

If the beach is more your vibe, sandy St. George Island’s miles of protected shoreline. Its sizable wildlife refuge will soothe with rhythmic surf, birdsong, and sun.

And if you’re really looking to escape, consider a visit to Apalachicola in the shoulder or off-season when you’ll have this magical place pretty much all to yourself.
