What sounds like an amazing vacation? White sand beaches, 43 miles of natural shoreline and incredible evening sunsets. All of which can be found in Northwest Florida, Gulf County.
Gulf County (GCFL) has all the relaxation you need, it is a “no worry, no hurry” destination, (after all they only have 2 stop lights!) There are no high-rise buildings, no busy roads or traffic, no over-explored areas. It is a quiet, laid back, and uncrowded place, where there is much to be discovered!
So what would you do in a tranquil place like Gulf County? Well, I would explore the seaside bike trails, kayak with my sweetheart, try my athleticism on stand-up paddle boards and maybe try snorkeling too (if it's warm!). It is the perfect place to unplug and unwind.
Truth be told, I often take the fast lane in life, and forget to slow down. I am known to run myself to the ground! So, Gulf County is appealing to me for it's uncrowded beaches and worry-free lifestyle. It is a place that would force me to step back and enjoy life. I could de-compress on the beach as the warm wind blows. I could lay there, mesmerized by the sound of the waves and captivated by a good book. I can feel my body calm just when I think about the unspoiled natural setting.
Aside from relaxing on the beach, I could enjoy many activities with my husband and my dog! It is one of the top rated beaches for pets, and many accommodations roll out the red carpet for pets too! That's a good thing, since I do enjoy her company. Here I am today on a snowy winter dog walk:
