Here are four of the best reasons to put Gulf County, Florida on YOUR travel bucket list this year:
OMG, who would NOT want to try this? When you choose to visit Gulf County horseback riding is one of the many activities that sit just beyond your door. Horseback riding alone is a beautiful activity for couples because its a beautiful way to bond together, but horseback riding on the beach is new experience entirely.
Every couple should try this, it’s so romantic! Imagine riding horseback along a white sandy beach at sunset with dolphins waving hello from the sun-tinted waters. It’s like something from a movie, except totally possible -even the dolphins part. It’s an amazing way to make a beautiful memory together.
Maybe you and your special someone are thrill seekers! Looking for the next exciting thing to check off of your bucket list. No horses on the beach for you, SHARK FISHING is more up your alley.
How many people can say they’ve caught a shark? You could! What we love most about this is that you can actually catch and hold an 8-ft tiger shark in your hands just before releasing it back into the water. Perfect photo-op? We think so!
Gulf County Florida has 244 miles of coastline so you can literally visit a different beach everyday. And every beach has a different vibe, feel and activity for you to try. There’s tons of Beaches you can discover in the Adventure Guide to see which one would be right for you!
Scallop in the bay, go shelling on the tip of the Cape or scoop blue crabs from off the beach. Cook what you catch by the light of a bonfire and enjoy a magical night together every night. There’s so much to do. And because every experience is enjoying a bit of nature, you never have the same adventure twice.
You spend so much time apart from your loved ones when you’re in a long distance relationship, so why not go the other extreme and enjoy your own private island for a day! Instead of the world keeping you apart from each other, you can tuck yourselves away from the rest of the world and just enjoy YOU there in the moment TOGETHER.
