This post brought to you by Gulf County, Florida. All opinions are 100% mine.
I have lived in 9 different states and 23 different cities in my life time and traveled to many more. Everyone of them has their own beauty and excitement. However the place I love the most is Florida, which is why I chose to settle here. Florida has 663 miles of beaches and each area is unique, with different beaches, currents, shells and tempertures. One of the places I would love to visit here in my home state is Gulf County and why I encourage you to Come visit GCFL.
Gulf County is located in the Northwest region of Florida, the Panhandle. You know what facing the west means means right?
Yep beautiful, amazing sunsets, nothing is more calming then watching the sunset after experiencing a day of fun doing some of the great activies that Gulf County has to offer like salt and fresh water fishing, snorkeling and scalloping, or kayaking and paddleboarding, just to name a few.
One of the locations in Gulf County I want to visit is Cape San Blas. Cape San Blas is a seventeen mile long barrier penisula, with white silky sand beaches on the Gulf side and calm shallow water full of colorful schools of fish on the bay side. It has something for everyone in my family, as you know I love the beach and can't get enough of shelling. I can't wait to grab my beach chair, music, shell bag and a book and start relaxing in the sun and just taking in the beauty. Another thing I adore about Cape San Blas is it has a pet friendly beach, I have house cats so I personally wouldn't bring them to the beach but I do have dogsons, three to be exact and how nice to be able to bring them with you so you can enjoy the day with your best friend.
My daughter Shay is a runner so she could go for a jog alone Loggerhead Run Bike Trail while the remainder of the family could be kayaking on the bay side in the clear shallow water spotting sand dollars, starfish, scallops and beautiful schools of fish. I can't think of a better way to spend a day or vacation for that matter.
After a spectular day on the beach the family can visit Cape San Blas Lighthouse. Over 165 years old, it is the westernmost of four light houses within a 90 mile span along the Gulf shoreline. Its beacons can be seen for 10 miles to help guide vessels around the shoals running out from the cape.
There are so many things to do in Gulf County, you can go 20 minutes inland and visit Wewahitchka home of Tupelo Honey and while there you can go on the Dead Lake Kayak Eco-tours. Or vist Port St. Joe or Indian pass where you can drive on the beach.
