Florida’s Forgotten Coast

By Linda Tancs

Florida’s Forgotten Coast lies along the Panhandle, punctuated by cozy towns with names like Port St. Joe, Indian Pass and Apalachicola.  From a touristy perspective, the area may indeed be quiet and unassuming (hence, the name), but this is where foodies congregate for some of the best seafood in the country amidst a strong maritime culture.  That’s especially true in historic Apalachicola, a tony hamlet with Queen Anne-style architecture known for its fishing and oysters.  The Apalachicola Bay area boasts the state’s largest national forest and the second largest Estuarine Research Reserve System in the nation.
