- One must be a fox in order to recognize traps, and a lion to frighten off wolves. Machiavelli Niccolo
A charming fishing town, maybe a little more Cape Cod than Deep South, Apalachicola offers terrific seafood, lovely waterfront parks, enchanting inns and the opportunity to glimpse the Florida Panhandle's oyster, timber and fishing history from ground level. Within easy range of Apalachicola, you will find miles of pristine beaches on St. George Island and, elsewhere, an endless supply of protected shallow bays, excellent fishing, and acres of national and state forests to explore. Combine all this with some of the finest seafood in the country and some of the nicest people anywhere, and your stay is sure to be memorable.
