Right about now I am ready to get away. It’s still cold here. Dreary. They are calling for snow again tomorrow.
I’m over it.
I want to go to Florida.
But not just anywhere in Florida.
I’m not looking for crowds and activity. I’m not looking for an itinerary packed with activities. I’m looking for warm sun, beautiful beaches and an escape from the fast pace of my every day life.
Gulf County, Florida may just be the ideal place for our family.

There are so many different locations and things to do in Gulf County, Florida but my first stop would be Wewahitchka. The Dead Lakes look amazing and a perfect place for us to spend relaxing time with our kids and let them experience the amazing ecosystems that Florida has to offer.
Wewahitchka is 20 miles inland and the Dead Lakes State Recreation Area has fishing, boating and all sort of wildlife to observe and experience. It is also the home of Florida’s largest beekeeping operation where they harvest the world famous Tupelo honey. There are also kayak tours and an RV campsite.

I love to walk my dogs, partly for my own exercise but mostly because of the joy they seem to get out of it. In our cold weather, our walks are cut short because their feet get cold. Toby will often limp because his little feet just can’t handle the snow and cold. Gulf County, Florida beaches are pet friendly, we would love to be out walking and running on the beach!
In addition to a contest entry, for every entry GCFL receives, they will donate $1 to Outdoor Nation – up to a final donation of $5,000!
