The Forgotten Coast of Florida derives its name from the miles and miles of uncrowded, unpopulated, beautiful beaches. What makes this area unique is the fact that it is so undeveloped and natural! There are very few shorelines in Florida that are free of traffic, thousands of people, malls, and chain restaurants. The Forgotten Coast offers a slower paced lifestyle, one that enables you to enjoy beautiful sunsets and feel the powder white sand between your toes.
Many of the current residents were born here, but over the years we've welcomed many newcomers to the area. Our small but growing community strives to preserve the unique aspects that drew everyone here in the first place; you will not find any high rise buildings, parking garages, or traffic jams here. Most of the local businesses are family owned and operated and offer some of the best food, artwork, jewelry, and live music you can find! Some favorite pastimes of the individuals who live or vacation here include fresh/salt water fishing, kayaking, deep sea fishing, jet skiing, tanning, shopping, horse back riding, crabbing, scalloping, beach strolling, attending bonfires, and boating just to name a few.
It has been almost a year since the devastation of Hurricane Michael, but the area is rebounding and there are many plans in the works for a better town to live in, work and enjoy. With many houses having been leveled, the options for new development are tremendous. The sugar sands of the Gulf of Mexico are still a major plus and the great fishing and boating opportunities have not changed. Construction of a new town center in Mexico Beach, utility infrastructure, and retail shops are all underway. The rental market for vacationers is wide open and construction on hotels is in progress. This area continues to provide a safe, fun place to enjoy all the Forgotten Coast has to offer.
Remember...you can search the MLS link for properties within the different areas of the Forgotten Coast; Mexico Beach, Cape San Blas, St. Joe Beach, Indian Pass, WindMark Beach, Apalachicola, St. George Island.

Reception from the community for the Port Theatre Art & Culture Center
's Thursdays at the Theatre
was overwhelming, as well as the community participation in filming the Brothers Osborne's video, Xmas events and many other activities. Restoration plans have been complicated by damage cause by the storm, but we are well on our way to rebuilding the Theatre with a view towards a multi-facetted venue.
