Are you more of a cool breeze than a steamy summer when it comes to vacations? Are you looking for an uncrowded, slow-paced getaway? Do you need an easy-breezy vacation without the kids? We’ve got you covered. Franklin County is known for its beautiful weather, and in the winter, highs reach the high 60s and are pleasant temperatures for any outdoor excursion. Find out what makes Winter on the Forgotten Coast unforgettable!

Shell Hunt

There is no end to the shells, sea glass, and sea life you can find on our Forgotten Coast beaches. Stroll on our white sands and catch a pastel sunrise from the shoreline. Watch the dolphins play and the waves crash. Shells are only a part of the treasure to be found from our shores.

Rent a Bike or Golf Cart and Cruise

Golf carting and bike riding are lovely ways to explore the Forgotten Coast. And with our winter weather, you can pedal or cruise beside scenic waterways, through the St. George Island State Park, and along with beautiful historic neighborhoods without breaking a sweat.

Visit a Brewery

The Forgotten Coast is home to Oyster City Brewing Company and Eastpoint Brewing Company. These pet-friendly dives have both trendy and delicious beer, live music, and outdoor fun areas.

Explore a Museum

From World War II to the invention of air conditioning, the Forgotten Coast has quite an exciting and intense history. With 14 museums, museum tours could keep you busy for more than a day or two! Check out our new museum video series, highlighting museums on the Forgotten Coast.

What are you waiting for? The weather is perfect, accommodations are plentiful, and at seasonal rates, and a slowed-down, small-town charm permeates the area. With miles of pristine beaches pretty much all to yourself and less humidity and heat for comfortable outdoor play, winter on the Forgotten Coast is the ideal escape for those who want to enjoy the outdoors. See you soon!
