The Forgotten Coast is a coastal stretch of the Florida Panhandle so named for being left out of Florida tourism promotions for several years in a row. It consists of Franklin County, Gulf County, Jefferson County, and Wakulla County.


  • Apalachicola -- the historic heart of the Forgotten coast featuring 200 historic buildings and amazing oysters.
  • St Vincent Island -- a long thin sandbar peninsula with one of the top 10 state parks in the US
  • St. George -- a tiny town surrounded by a sprinkling of vacation homes and a state park in the dunes on a small island connected by bridge to the mainland
  • Eastpoint -- the commercial center of the Forgotten Coast, with a number of restaurants
  • Panacea
  • Saint Marks -- History and the HuManatee Festival
  • Wakulla Springs -- One of the world's deepest and largest freshwater springs.
  • Wewahitchka -- Two lovely lakes a short drive from the coast.
  • Sopchoppy -- A tiny but thriving town a few miles from the coast.
  • Port St. Joe -- County seat of Gulf County, good fishing, shopping.
