Ahhh it’s that time again, spring is here, which means that we’re looking into family summer vacation destinations!
If you’ve got an outdoor loving family that is looking for adventures that involve sun, sand, sea and surf, you don’t necessarily have to leave the U.S. Look no further than your own backyard in Gulf County, Florida!
Gulf County is located in Northwest Florida and has something perfect for everyone in the family. With over 43 miles of white sand beaches and warm weather year round, it’s no surprise that people are boasting about visiting the area. No seriously, take a look at the #GCFLnofilter hashtag on social media sites and you’ll see that there are so many people who love this place!
Now we’re a beach going family, so it’s no surprise that the majority of the activities we’d be interested in are near – and IN the ocean. Looking through the Gulf County Adventure Guide, it looks like in addition kayaking, deep sea fishing, camping, snorkeling, hiking, and many more activities, there are a few fun things that are unique to the area. Here are a few adventures I would put on the itinerary during a visit to Gulf County:
Horseback riding around Cape San Blas – We’ve never gone horseback riding, so this is one of the top to-do’s on our list. Experienced guides take you and your family of up to 10 people on a slow and serene ride on your very own horse. What better way to take in the views and trot along the beach?
Exploring Turtle Beach, and swimming with turtles! – I have always wanted to swim with sea turtles, this would be my chance! They are so majestic and grand, fascinating creatures, to say the least. Turtle Beach lives up to it’s name, they nest here and lay eggs year after year, an incredible sight i’m sure!
Scalloping – Scallop season is June – September, and you can actually jump into St. Joseph Bay and fish for your dinner for the evening! All you need is a snorkel, a fishing license for the day, and a little mesh bag to carry your scallops in, and the water is only 2-3 feet deep, so the whole family can participate!
Snorkeling and shelling – My kids love collecting shells, but they haven’t been able to try snorkeling yet. I would love to stop by a beach here with shallow waters so the kids could practice snorkeling, looking into the water for their favorite shells.
