A winter escape sounds nice, doesn't it? A 100% ALL NATURAL ADVENTURE.
Northwest Florida, Gulf County to be exact, has 43 gorgeous miles of natural shoreline. Imagine white-sand beaches on the Gulf of Mexico and St. Joseph Bay with the absence of high-rises and busy highways. Sounds like a dream, doesn't it? Come visit GCFL
Living in the Midwest, we spend a bit of each year in the freezing cold, piled up with heaps of snow. When we're shivering in below zero temperatures, you can bet that we're dreaming of a relaxing vacation somewhere like Florida's Gulf County. It's laid back, relaxing, and best of all--no coats required. Meaning, we can take a break from our winter jackets and escape for a bit. There's a reason why so many Midwestern folks migrate down to the Gulf Coast each winter.
January through March is the perfect time to escape to Gulf County. Gulf County hosts a ton of Winter Fun Events all throughout the season.
With Intracoastal and mysterious Dead Lake charters, and so many other activities and events, there is so much to explore in this part of Florida. Personally, I've really got my eye on the Indian Pass Shelling Trip. I've always had a fascination for shell gathering, and I'm betting I would be just as excited to find gorgeous shells now as I was as a child. Or, a horse ride on the beach. Now, that would be serene.
I love the beach. Capital L.O.V.E.--love--the beach. My favorite things to do at the beach are simply to listen to the waves crash, take walks and enjoy the glorious beauty of the Gulf, and take photos. And you know what? The beaches in Gulf County during January through March are PERFECT for all of my favorite things.
Quirky little fact--this area of Florida's Gulf Coast is proud of the fact they have two stoplights and spotty Wi-Fi. Sounds like a great place to truly unplug and get away from all the technology that ties us down these days, and really connect with our loved ones. What do you say--unplug and enjoy your family and friends?
With its small town charm and planned community activities that embrace vacationers, you'll feel like you've truly come home when you visit Gulf County. And with the best sunsets around--in a place that makes you feel like family--we're guessing you're going to want to come back again and again. I know we will.
Or, maybe you want to bring your pets on vacation? Gulf County Florida is ranked among the top 10 beaches in the United States to take pets on vacation. I know my furry friend would love to go on a beach vacation. Most rental homes in the area are happy to accept pets, which makes planning a vacation with your family pet that much easier.
