Apalachicola & St. George Island are featured as Great Southern US Beach Towns by BootsnAll Travel

Apalachicola & St. George Island are featured as one of Eight Great Southern US Beach Towns by BootsnAll Travel
 

"Local Tallahassee residents (among others) flock to this area, a small fishing village just across the bridge from St. George Island, during the summer. Oysters rule in Apalachicola; the estuarine system in the Apalachicola Bay is one of the last pristine watersheds in the northern hemispheres. Restaurants in town feature at least one oyster dish of some sort – from the Oyster Stew at Tamara’s Café to the Fried Oysters at Veranda’s Bistro.

Cross the bridge and you’re on St. George Island. This beach town has a small but thriving artist’s community and wildlife is plentiful. Fishing is a popular pastime and the best place to catch “the big one” is at Bob Sikes Cut at the west end of St. George Island."
