Murals abound in Gulf County! Are you ready to find them all? Four murals are scattered throughout Gulf County so that you can find them and strike a pose.
The murals are a new project that Gulf County, Florida, introduced to get some artwork out into the natural areas where visitors and locals alike would see them and take a photo. Gulf County worked with local artist Sara Griffins from Enjoy Art By Sara to create each mural. Use this blog as a tool for your next trip to Gulf County so that you can find them all!

Bee Sweet Gulf County
Location: Lake Alice Park, Wewahitchka
This mural was the 2nd one created to celebrate the local honey flavors found in Gulf County! You can find this mural at Lake Alice Park, which hosts several events throughout the year. If you cannot make it to one of the events, Lake Alice is the perfect place for a picnic with the family. Large oak trees surround the park for the perfect shade. There is also a walking path and a playground for kids and kids at heart to enjoy.

Tourism is the Pearl of Gulf County
Location: Cape Palms Park, Cape San Blas
Mural #3 is the first one created by Sara, and it was essential to Gulf County to celebrate its number one industry. Did you know that Visitor Spending supports 37% of Jobs in Gulf County and generates over $14 M in local and state taxes? That is huge! Located at Cape Palms Park, this mural has the incredible Gulf of Mexico just behind it! You can enjoy a day at the beach, an excellent swing, or a picnic at this park.
Hooked on Gulf County
The final mural celebrates the outstanding fishing found throughout all of our waters in Gulf County! There are bayous, bays, rivers, and sounds that allow anglers to have some of the best experiences. It is easy to see why people get hooked on Gulf County, not just for the fishing but for everything else Gulf County offers. If you love it, then help take care of it and become a Local By Association. Veterans Memorial Park at Beacon Hill is high up on a bluff in St. Joe Beach and boasts some of the best views. You can also enjoy plenty of space to stretch out and a dog park. Don't forget to pay respects and honor our Veterans at the Honor Walk.
