From the January Coast Line newspaper "101 Things To Do Along Florida's Forgotten Coast" by Chuck Spicer.
We spent two nights on this "Forgotten Coast" and will surely be back in the future for an extended stay. We went to St. George Island. Unfortunately, those two days, the weather was pretty bad, but we still enjoyed ourselves. Before last December, I had never even heard of St. George Island, but had heard of nearby Apalachicola.
I figured to checkout the area since we would be driving north along Florida's west coast from the Tampa area to Panama City Beach.
We had gone to the two towns on the western part of the coast, Mexico Beach and Port St. Joe, looking for an NTN site in each town and had been impressed.
Florida's "Forgotten Coast" is located east of Panama City Beach once you get past Tyndall Air Force Beach and stretches to the crook of Florida where the coastline turns from north-south to east-west. The beginning of the panhandle.
In the "Forgotten Coast" they like to say it's Florida like Florida used to be.
