The Gulf Coast Of Florida – Great For Family Travels

This post brought to you by Gulf County, Florida. All opinions are 100% mine.

There is nothing more peaceful and relaxing that beautiful warm and sunny beaches anywhere. Having lived In Israel, which is on the Mediterranean Ocean, and now living in Southern California on the Pacific Ocean, my next goal is to visit the beautiful weather and environment of the southern Atlantic Ocean especially Florida. I love the West coast of the United States and it has so much to offer, but the East coast has a lot to offer too and what’s even better is they both have their own uniqueness to them. It’s what makes America so great!

Florida is the closet we can get to the equator and the Atlantic is to visit sunny Florida. Our family has visited Florida in the past for Disneyworld but that is city life. We love nature and the outdoors and our next destination visit in Florida will be to the sandy white beaches and other ecological treasures! Florida has so much to offer around the state and Northwest Florida, Gulf County boasts 43 miles of natural shoreline, two time zones, only two stoplights and spotty Wi-Fi making their beaches truly relaxing and peaceful. Check out some Pinterest recommendations here.  

The beauty of the Gulf Coast is nature triumphs doing away with high-rises and busy highways and putting tranquility over futility. With uncrowded, quiet, and unspoiled beaches the gulf coast of Florida is something to be enjoyed at some time in your life. Beautiful sparkling white-sandy beaches and spectacular sunsets make the gulf of Florida, Gulf of Mexico, and St. Joseph Bay the tropics to the mainland and boast ocean sunsets over sunrises. The Gulf Coast is a #championofsunsets.

With so much to do such as visiting real bayous, encountering unexpected wildlife, or making your way to visit the mysterious Dead Lakes, no matter what, your love for nature will become reignited. Maybe the beach is what that visit is for so check out the different seaside bike trails, or give it a go on a kayak, stand-up paddleboard, or hit the water for some snorkeling. There are also historical sites to visit like Indian Pass Raw Bar and local flavors to sample such as the legendary Tupelo Honey which is farmed in Gulf County. Harvest starts in late April or early May and the 24th Annual Tupelo Honey Festival is on May 17 on the pristine banks of Lake Alice in Wewahitchka. Check it out and other Florida Gulf Coast events here.

And for the pet lovers out there, Beaches in GCFL are ranked as a top ten US beach for pet friendly vacations. Pets with a leash are welcomed on the beach and most rental properties will accommodate the little furry family member.

Check out this selfie, me doing what I love best. Seeing nature and being with my family. I love running but nothing would be better than running down a beautiful gulf coast beach with no shoes and the sun to my back or with my husband and kids walking or visiting wherever the day takes us.

With so much offered, if you have the chance to plan a vacation trip to the Gulf Coast of Florida, where would you like to spend the most time? I would love to spend the most time on the beach, but I would have to see what else the Gulf has to offer, let me know yours!
