Described as the last vestige of Old Florida on the Forgotten Coast, Carabelle is a tranquil destination and an attractive alternative for travelers looking to avoid rowdy crowds. Set in the panhandle just southwest of Tallahassee, this town is really an angler’s paradise thanks to three local rivers and plenty of salt and freshwater fish including grouper and snapper, However, not all the fun happens on the water. For instance, white sand beaches and 750,000 acres of forest provide ample space for leisure -- whether it be basking in the sun or hiking, birding, and spotting wildlife. Think eagles, blue heron, and even black bears! Dining is for sure a seafood feast with restaurants serving bar favorites, grilled specialties, and fish frys.
Given the Gulf Coast location and it’s fishing village heritage, it’s no surprise people often head to the marina to join one of the charter boats for a day of spectacular saltwater and freshwater fishing. Taking strolls on the soft sands of Carrabelle Beach is another worthwhile option, and so is playing golf on the Audubon Signature Sanctuary course at the St. James Bay Golf Resort. History buffs head straight to the Camp Gordon Johnston World War II Museum or the Lost Treasure Vintage Gallery and Hurricane Museum, as well as venture to interesting sites such as the Crooked River Lighthouse. When in the mood for live music, the Rio Carrabelle Arts Center downtown does’t disappoint. Oh, and don’t forget to pick up souvenirs and original gifts for friends from friendly local shops such as Beach Trader and Christie’s Cottage Living.
Since most people spend a lot of time outdoors, the warmer shoulder months of early April to mid-May and early October to early November are ideal for beach and water activities, playing in the parks, and exploring the sites around town.
