Our past tells a story here in Gulf County.  From lighthouse climbs for spectacular views on sunny days to touring a museum for a rainy day activity, there are many activities for those seeking the area's history. You can step back in time to learn how Coastal American Indians occupied the area when Spanish explorers dropped anchor inside Cape San Blas in the early 1500s or hear why Port St. Joe is called the “Constitution City.”  If you are looking for a good beach book, then stop in at No Name Books & More to pick up one of the many books that tell all about Gulf County's history.
