Apalachicola, FL

Apalachicola, FL

As you step off your boat onto the docks in Apalachicola it is impossible not to feel how history infuses the entire town.  In the middle of the “Forgotten Coast” of the Florida Panhandle this community of 2000 inhabitants blends its 4000 plus years of human history into everyday life.  The town still has thriving businesses in oyster, shrimp, crab, sponge, and finfish and echoes of the past ring loud through the town.  Couple this with a 21st Century tourism business that is unique to the area and visitors can expect a very pleasant and laid back experience.

Apalachicola has a very low key vibe with a vibrant Old Florida ambiance.  There are many funky boutiques, coffee shops, restaurants, raw bars, and even a local brewery.  “Fresh caught” takes on new meaning when ordering seafood here.  What is really nice is the town is not overrun with visitors.  Everything gets done but there is no sense of urgency.  The town really grows on you.
