Spring Travel Part Ten: Port St. Joe, Florida
This is part ten of a continuing series on some of my favorite spring travel destinations in the South.
The beaches of Northwest Florida draw hundreds of thousands of visitors each year, most of them swarming to places like Panama City, Destin and Pensacola Beach. But to the east of these places is a lesser known destination that is one of the most beautiful spots in the South.
Port St. Joe and spectacular St. Joseph Bay are rich in history and natural beauty and offer some of the most unspoiled coastal areas to be found in Florida. Cape San Blas, a peninsula that extends far out into the Gulf of Mexico, is noted for its beautiful unspoiled beaches. Port St. Joe itself is a charming city on the bay that is the site of Florida's famed "lost city" of St. Joseph.
