Florida's Forgotten Coast-- Part 4: Wewahitchka and Tupelo Honey

Next, take Highway 71 from Port St. Joe to Wewahitchka.  Commonly referred to as "Wewa" by locals, it is home to Dead Lakes and Tupelo Honey.  Dead Lakes is the place to go for camera buffs for its cypress trees.

Wewa folks have harvested Tupelo Honey from the swamps of the Apalachicola River basin for over a century.  This honey is generally regarded as the best in the world.  It is pure and does not granulate.  A Tupelo Festival is held each spring.
