My family has been trying to decide on our next road trip destination and a decision has officially been made. This weekend we are heading to Gulf County FL for both adventure and relaxation. We wanted to visit a place with beautiful beaches, wildlife and scenery as well as live music, shopping and delicious food all while being away from the rush, noise and huge buildings in the major cities. We want nature, friendly faces and great weather we can enjoy during prime season. Gulf County, FL has all of that and more.
It is so easy to plan a Gulf County vacation using the Adventure Guide , which you can actually search by destination, season and activity. There are guides to help you discover some of the best places to go from biking, hiking and riding to fishing, diving and sailing. If you need to know where to catch the breathtaking sunset or collect beautiful check there are guides for that. When you want to go paddle boarding or help baby turtles there is a guide for that. If you want to keep up your fitness while you’re enjoying vacation, guess what…there is a guide for that! During prime season, about now through May, you will have no trouble finding numerous things to do with your family for all age ranges.
Not so much into planning? That is absolutely not a problem. There is a pretty cool Gulf County Concierge Program ready to help you. Just answer a few easy questions like what your interests are and you’ll be connected to a local expert who can help get your trip headed in the right direction for you! It is so much better when you can connect with locals because they know and love the area so much. You have got to love the small town community pride of Gulf County, FL. Everyone wants to show you the best of the area, help you discover new things and point you in the right direction with a smile and perhaps a brilliant story about where you’re headed.
Instead of only doing routine activities this weekend in Gulf County, my family is going to venture into a few things we have never done before. We’ll still lounge by the pool, walk along the beach and shop til we drop but we want to get the most out the our four day trip. One thing we immediately agreed on was a sunset cruise. After reading about it in the adventure guide we just knew we wanted to go. We are so excited to see the beauty scenery and nature of Gulf County in the evening out on the water!
We are also trying out kayaking. I know this is unexpected but after reading the guides and talking to a few friends who have kayaked in Gulf County, I found out that we’ll be in good hands with nice people ready to help us newbies out. We love being out on the water so I am really looking forward to trying it! It’s such a highly recommended activity from everyone I’ve spoken to.
I’d really love to go horseback riding on the beach! I love horses and have been riding but never have I ever done so on a beach. Combining my love of horses and the beach would be epic so that may be one of the Gulf County experiences during our trip. We’re just stoked to get out there, have fun together and make new memories! We’ve all been packed for days and cannot stop talking about our upcoming trip. I am so ready to hit the road this weekend. I’m also excited to share that you could be having your own adventure in Gulf County too by entering the Never Have I Ever Contest for a chance to win a week long getaway to Gulf County, FL!
