Miles of pristine beaches, endless shallow bays and marshes, fresh water rivers provide great opportunities for fishing, boating, kayaking, birding or hiking. Take a guided tour up the Apalachicola River, see the historic waterfront and learn about the role the river has played in our history and economy. Head up the river to view wild, isolated marshes or take a trip across Apalachicola Bay to one of the barrier islands - St Vincent National Wildlife Refuge, Cape St George, or Dog Island. Land based adventures included trips to the expansive Apalachicola National Forest or Tate's Hell State Forest for birding, hiking and fishing. Historic Apalachicola has several museums and over 900 structures in its National Historic District.
