Apalachicola or better known as “Apalach” by the locals is one of the most historic cities in Florida.
It is located 70 miles southeast of Panama City Beach and 75 miles southwest of Tallahassee. Apalachicola was established in 1831 and was once the third largest port on the Gulf of Mexico.
The large oak trees that canopy over the streets add to the beauty and charm of Apalachicola’s nineteenth and twentieth century historic homes. Apalachicola has over 900 historic homes and buildings. The locally owned and operated businesses create a quaint and friendly atmosphere for visitors as well as local residents.
If you like that old world charm, peace and quiet, terrific fishing, boating, and fresh seafood, Apalachicola is your town. Known for their plump, sweet Apalachicola Bay oysters and excellent restaurants, Apalachicola harvests over 90% of the oysters sold in Florida.
