Gulf County Tourist Development Council
Located in Northwest Florida, Gulf County boasts 43 miles of natural shoreline. Unique to Gulf County, and unlike our neighboring counties, water envelopes us, and our residents and visitors interact with it daily. No matter if the interaction is in pristine St. Joseph Bay, out in the Gulf of Mexico, on St. Joseph Canal, or even in the Intracoastal Waterway, the water heals, feeds, challenges, calms, and defines us all. The hub of Gulf County is historic Port St. Joe, a small and united community, built from generations of fishermen and mill workers who chose this isolated and literally untouched area for a life on the water. Quaint inns, historic main street shopping, and restaurants right on the water. All tucked conveniently away from the crowds.
Even though we have the accolades to boast about….America’s #1 Beach and America’s Best State Park…. World-famous Tupelo Honey …Legendary Dead Lakes…..Infamous Indian Pass Raw Bar…. Florida’s Constitution City….we do our best to keep it simple. And, today, many visit our un-crowded destination and return home vowing to let few in on their secret.
Sure, we’re just a bit off the beaten path—but that doesn’t stop our visitors from finding us. Here, we don’t have high-rise condos and busy highways, but if you’re looking for affordable rental homes for your family, a place where you can gather scallops right out of the bay, or even enjoy a horseback ride on the beach, read on and start planning your Gulf County vacation today!
