Florida's "Forgotten Coast" is an eco-adventure paradise and great for families of all shapes and sizes. More than 87% of Franklin County is located in state or national forests and preserves which have protected us from over-development. St. George Island is a 22-mile barrier island located 80 miles east of Panama City and 80 miles southwest of Tallahassee. There are no high-rise hotels or bungee cord jumps. In the peak of "high season", lucky beachcombers often find themselves on a mile stretch of completely deserted beach sprinkled with shells yet to be found or gliding in a kayak on the Apalachicola Bay while egrets, blue heron and eagles soar. On St. George Island, the gentle pace of life takes you to times gone by.
There's something different here. The views of the Gulf of Mexico are breathtaking. At any given moment, there are glimpses of dolphins dancing just beyond the surf and in the distance, a shrimp boat raises her nets in preparation to return her bounty to local seafood houses. It may be the vibrant sunsets painted in ruby and gold that takes your breath away or perhaps it's the moon and stars that appear so bright that they seem to be beaming especially for you.
