Florida's Forgotten Coast-- Part 2

MEXICO BEACH

This is the first Forgotten Coast town you reach when driving east from Panama City Beach.  Just 999 folks call it home year-round.  Of course, there are more during the summer.  Sugar-white sand and a "snowbird destination.  Several miles of unspoiled beached run parallel to US-98 and supposedly "no undertow" to worry about.  And, of course, there is fishing.


PORT ST. JOE

Downtown has "transformed itself into an 'old time' strolling, browsing and shopping area" with exceptional brickwork.

The Chamber sponsors an annual Scallop and Music Days every August.

St. Joseph (now Port St. Joe) was a boomtown in the 1830s and hosted the Florida Constitutional Convention in 1839.

And, it is great for birding.

Well Worth a Trip to This Area.  --RoadDog
