1. Fun at the Beach
Need we say more? There is nothing like a fun day on the chalky white beaches of the Forgotten Coast. Build a sandcastle, take funny photos with your friends, and capture the moment.
2. Historic Buildings in Apalachicola
Apalachicola is a historic village with timeworn brick buildings repurposed into art galleries, shops, and restaurants. You’ll want to take a few shots of the fun there.
You may have heard that Apalachicola Bay is closed for wild oyster harvesting for the next five years. This is true. But wait. We do have Apalachicola Oysters from the Apalachicola Bay. They are farmed through aquaculture using baskets on a pulley system in the bay. We promise you will not be disappointed with these oysters. They are simply delicious and an absolutely must-try when you are here.
4. Fishing photos
Some are keepers, some are catch and release. Either way, document your bragging rights and fishing fun.
5. Oyster City Brewing Company
Oyster City Brewing Company is Apalachicola’s pride and joy, a brewery that started with a love for delicious beer. All are welcome. No matter if you like beer or not, this retro brewery located in the heart of Apalachicola is a must stop, must snap, and must grab a t-shirt spot!
6. Carrabelle’s Police Station
Carrabelle has the smallest police station in the world. Why yes, it’s a phone booth. You must snap a shot of this adorable landmark!
7. Dogs on the Beach
Ok, we would like you to shake off (picture dog coming out of the water shaking the water off) that image of serenity for one moment. The first thing on your pup’s mind when he or she sees the beach is Wahooooo! It’s such a joy seeing your furry friend enjoy the coast just like you do.
They are colorful, they are vivid symbols of fishing villages, and they are the perfect Instagram moment.
9. Weber’s donuts
Get up early, grab a coffee from the Bayside Coffee Truck, talk with fellow visitors, get donuts, and take a picture! We promise those donuts will go fast!
10. Eastpoint Beer Company
As if the beer wasn’t enough of a reason to draw you in, Eastpoint Beer Company has a back porch that offers impressive sunsets over the bay, live music, and fresh pizza to boot.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Why not give us your photo dissertation on the magic of the Forgotten Coast. We might even ask to borrow your photo for our webpage or social media! Don’t forget to tag us on #forgottencoast and follow us on Instagram at @forgottencoast.
