Welcome to the “Redneck Riviera”!
Or, as many people call it, the “Forgotten Coast.”
Once you visit this quiet area of the Florida Panhandle, however, you’ll never forget it, I promise you. This part of Florida has nothing in common with South Beach and Miami, and the people here prefer it that way.
Here’s you’ll fine a complete guide (updated a couple of times a year) for everything you need to experience a great Long Weekend in Apalachicola.
You’ll love the area’s wide beaches, the low-key lifestyle and the endless supply of great seafood.
“We’ve always preferred the Florida Panhandle to other parts of the West Coast—it’s less crowded, the people are more down-to-earth and the prices are cheaper. We found a couple of nice restaurants in this Guide we hadn’t known about before.”
--- Louise S., Boston
“Was really happy with the restaurant selection—and the shortness of the book. I got everything I needed to know in no time at all. We checked out 2 of the inns and chose the second one we visited. No filler and fluff in this handy guide.”
--- Charleen H., Chattanooga
