Make New Friends, Connect with Nature and Be Open to Wonder

PORT ST. JOE, Fla. (November 20, 2014) – Sure, snow can be absolutely gorgeous, but come mid-January, we know you’re ready to escape to somewhere warmer and more peaceful. Gulf County, Florida is your perfect escape. And, we’ve got everything covered. January through March, we’re bringing all of our visitors together with events big and small. We’ve got a packed calendar of events, and it’s always changing. Here’s a taste of the fun we’ve planned.

  • Visit our Welcome Center for a cocktail reception where you’ll meet other winter guests and make lifelong friends
  • Take a sunset cruise from Port St. Joe Marina with a handful of other nature lovers
  • Explore the St. Joseph Bay Buffer Preserve and see more than 20 different species of rare, protected plants – and an occasional alligator
  • Build a bonfire on the beach and gaze up at the twinkling night sky
  • Fish off our pier or with a charter captain at the tip of the Cape – and cook your catch that night

“The coolest thing about visiting this time of year is discovering your vacation family,” said Zach Ferrell, owner of No Worries Vacation Rentals. “We’ve seen people visit year after year and develop lifelong friendships with visitors from all over the country. This year, we’ve developed these events and gatherings to make your trip that much more memorable.”

And, when we say we’ve got you covered, we’re not exaggerating. Don’t argue about fitting the bikes, chairs or umbrellas in the car. Don’t lug your kayaks down with you. Gulf County has great rentals for reasonable prices. And, we’ll set everything up for you – like a resort. Even in the winter, we make it easy.

Gulf County is an equal mix of peaceful solitude and friendly camaraderie. Memories aren’t always made from big, fancy productions. Instead, we connect over the small, happy accidents. Come explore with us.
