Empty Beach on Florida's Forgotten Coast

All the gifts under the tree have been unwrapped, the stockings unstuffed and the Christmas feast devoured. The house is a wreck, the fridge is empty and your relatives are finally heading home. You survived the holiday whirlwind of get-togethers, gift exchanges and guests—and you’re absolutely exhausted.

It sounds like you need a vacation from your Christmas vacation! Look no further than Florida’s Forgotten Coast. Here are three great reasons to take a post-Christmas trip to Franklin County

  1. It’s a great place to celebrate the New Year.
    Want to ring in the New Year Forgotten Coast-style? Many of our fabulous local restaurants offer delicious New Year’s Eve dinners and New Year’s Day brunch specials. If you’re in the mood for an unforgettable New Year’s Eve bash, look no further! Lots of our area’s pubs, tap rooms and nightlife venues will be hosting live entertainment and parties to countdown to 2019.
  2. It’s peaceful here. (Just what you need right now!)
    Tranquility now! We all know the holidays can be a bit stressful. Okay, a lot stressful. Why not come on down to the Forgotten Coast to relax, recover and unwind? Our area is incredibly quiet and calm this time of year. The beaches, restaurants and shops aren’t crowded, and vacation rentals are plentiful. It’s the perfect place to recharge after your chaotic Christmas.
  3.  It’s super affordable this time of year.
    Not only is our area crowd-free the week after Christmas—it’s also incredibly affordable! Whether you prefer a Bed & Breakfast in historic downtown Apalachicola, a beach house on St. George Island, a condo in Carrabelle or anything in between, you’ll be amazed to see the fabulous lodging deals this time of year.
