This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Visit Gulf County for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Florida is so much more than its behemoth theme parks, and Gulf County is one of its best assets. If you’ve never explored beyond Orlando, consider adding the GCFL to your list of must see vacation spots this year – I promise you won’t be disappointed!

Made up of 43 miles of incredible coastline along Florida’s panhandle, Gulf County is a destination in its own right. It’s here that you’ll find plenty of adventures including camping, fishing, hiking, snorkeling, and more. They’ve worked hard to balance the preservation of nature, their cultural identity, and easy adventures to make the Florida Gulf Coast a place you can experience time and again and never have the same adventure twice.

Outside adventures are encouraged, and opportunities are shared via the GCFL Adventure Guide, which is produced monthly. It shares the best in what to do, where to stay, what to see, and more. The Guide also dispenses insider tips and stories about the area and its people. You can also get information via the VisitGulf.com website. Check out upcoming events and Florida travel tips. Then explore destinations including Port St. Joe, Indian Pass, Cape San Blas, St. Joe Beach, Wewahitchka, and St. Joseph Bay. You’ll discover the best place to birdwatch, go scalloping, fishing, hiking, horseback riding and great trails for hiking and biking. Also, find out where to charter a boat, go golfing, find live music and great food, and the best place to catch a memorable sunset or sunrise.
