Historic Apalachicola

Okay, so I visited Apalachicola too long ago to really add the personal touch to this blog entry (photos, generally) but it’s a “off-the-beaten” path locale that offers a glimpse into “Old” Florida. I love the “Old” Florida, myself, over the trendy commercialized vacation playground it’s become, so I really enjoyed my visit to Apalachicola.

Here’s some links if you want to experience a different side to Florida, rather than the typical trendy white beaches, six-million dollar condo towers, acres upon acres of strip malls, sprawling development encroaching upon the wetlands, and miles of fast-food restaurants. You can even rent a houseboat to stay on while you’re there!

This website seems to be pretty good for places to stay, where to dine, and what to see. http://www.apalachicolabay.org/index.cfm/m/71/sectionId/0/Apalachicola/
