The Food Lover’s Way to Visit Florida

Visit Florida and start in Franklin County, along the northern Gulf Coast. This oasis of sparkling beaches, tranquil bay waters, and scenic rivers and streams. Dubbed Florida’s Forgotten Coast, its communities include Apalachicola, Carrabelle, Eastpoint, Alligator Point, and St. George Island. The environment is the economy here, and folks enjoy fishing, kayaking, swimming, diving, hiking, or eating fresh Apalachicola Bay seafood.

In fact, you can eat fresh seafood at more than thirty area eateries ranging from casual open-air cafes to upscale restaurants. One crowd-pleaser is the bacon and spinach wrapped jalapeño grilled Apalachicola oysters with Southern aioli, a regular winner at the Apalachicola Oyster Cook Off.
