Located on Florida’s southern point, Apalachicola is a pleasant little town that possesses a homely small town vibe and has plenty of unique attractions to offer those passing through. The name actually stems from the Native American language and translates to “friendly people”.
One of the best things to do in Apalachicola is to sample seafood dishes at one of the restaurants serving up fresh shrimp, oysters, and other delicacies from the deep. Apalachicola is known as being the “oyster capital of the world” so you should uncover the reason why it won that accolade. Other more historical attractions in the area include learning the history of the area at the maritime museum, and the John Gorrie museum.
Spring is arguably the best time to visit Apalachicola. The skies are blue and the weather is warm and it's sunny but not too hot.
