Other Things To Do in Apalachicola

Probably the best way to explore Apalachicola is on foot. Many of the city’s historic homes and buildings are within walking distance of each other and easily seen from the street. Other attractions worth exploring are the Apalachicola Museum of Art, which features changing temporary exhibits, and the Apalachicola Maritime Museum, founded to celebrate and preserve the city’s seagoing history.

Golfers will enjoy playing a round at St. James Bay Golf Course in nearby Carrabelle or St. Joseph’s Bay Country Club in Port St. Joe. Both courses offer 18 holes and plenty of challenges for players of all skill levels.

Nature lovers will want to explore the miles of undeveloped beaches, sand dunes, bay forests, sandy coves, and salt marshes that make up St. George Island State Park and neighboring St. Joseph Peninsula State Park. Both parks offer excellent opportunities for hiking, snorkeling, swimming, and birding.

Visitors of all ages will enjoy visiting the 79-foot Cape St. George Lighthouse on nearby St. George Island. It’s open most days for tours, and the adjacent lighthouse keeper’s cottage features exhibits illustrating the history of the area.

No matter whether you’re planning a family trip with the kids or a romantic getaway for two, the Apalachicola area offers plenty of activities to make your vacation memorable and fun.
