You won’t find any 24 gyms or large fitness centers here, and that’s probably how you want it when you are on vacation. We do, however, have quite a selection of local places for classes and working out.
Honestly, there are opportunities to exercise everywhere here. With abundant beautiful scenery and mild temperatures, there is no excuse not to get outside and bike, hike, run or walk on the beach. We have paved bicycle paths, pickleball courts, tennis courts, and basketball courts. Apalachicola and Carrabelle both have walking tours featuring historic sites.
Even though you are vacationing, sleeping a little later, and maybe indulging a little more, you should be able to get in both exercise and relaxation while visiting the Forgotten Coast.
