Gulf County, Franklin County & the City of Mexico Beach are located in the Florida Panhandle and border the beautiful, pristine waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Approximately 80 miles from the state capital of Tallahassee and 61 miles from Panama City, this area of Florida’s Gulf Coast is prized for its beaches, fishing, boating, diving, eco tours, birding, scalloping, National forests and State parks.
In 2002, St. Joseph Peninsula State Park, located in Gulf County, was voted America’s Top Beach by Dr. Stephen Leatherman and in 2008; Apalachicola was selected by the National Trust for Historic Preservation as one of America’s Dozen Distinctive Destinations.
Natural beauty, “Old Florida” charm, uncrowded beaches, historic appeal, and low-density development are just a few of the things that make the communities served by the REALTORS® Association of Franklin & Gulf Counties truly exceptional and unique. You won’t find any high rises here. Unlike many other coastal areas in Florida, the natural environment has been preserved and provides a refreshing alternative for those who are seeking to escape from the hectic fast-paced world.
Once you experience our “Forgotten Coast”, you will remember it forever.
