FLORIDA'S FORGOTTEN COAST IS YOUR LATE WINTER GETAWAY
 
(2022 - Winter/Spring Issue)

Writer: MADELAINE LAFRAMBOISE



Along Florida’s Northern Gulf Coast, there’s a year-round coastal oasis with sparkling beaches, tranquil bay waters and scenic rivers and streams known as Franklin County.

Dubbed “Florida’s Forgotten Coast” for its quiet, laid-back atmosphere, the scenic coastal communities of Apalachicola, Carrabelle, Eastpoint, Alligator Point and St. George Island are also perfect late winter getaway destinations.

Trip Ideas

Enjoy a mid-winter holiday that can include fishing, kayaking, swimming, diving, hiking or eating fresh Apalachicola Bay seafood. Over 80 percent of Franklin County’s 1,412 square kilometres are publicly owned, giving adventurers ample rivers, creeks and coastal shallows to explore. With 40+ camping areas and campgrounds that range from luxury waterfront RV parks to basic woods sites there are many boat launches and hiking opportunities in the county.

Take a relaxing sunset tour of Apalachicola’s historic waterfront aboard one of several adventure tour boats or charter an offshore trip in Carrabelle. Enjoy birdwatching and pet-friendly beaches on St. George Island.

There are many fun winter and early spring events along the Forgotten Coast including the annual St. George Island Chili Cookoff, Eastpoint Rib Cookoff, Carrabelle Riverfront Festival and Apalachicola’s Artwalk. 

To Know

• The average winter temperatures along the coast hover around 16 Celsius.

• Off-season lodging prices are generally lower and the beaches are less crowded than in the spring and summer.
