Located about an hour south of Tallahassee is Alligator Point, Florida. It’s a rural beach community that is sometimes thought to be Florida’s forgotten coast. So you can imagine with that description, there were not crowds at all and it really was secluded!
I have mixed feeling with Alligator Point, Florida. While it is nice not having crowds and basically having beach to yourself, but the closest store is 40 minutes away and any restaurants are at least 20. So when I say small town, I mean it! If you really need to get away, then this is the place for you!
Where to Stay:
On every family vacation we rent a beach house since there are so many of us. It is also nice to have your own kitchen and beach space. Here are some options of websites that rent houses.
Things to Do:
- Of course lay on the beach all day
- Deep sea fishing
- Bald Point State Park
- St. Marks Lighthouse
- Drive to Carrabelle or St. George Island. They are both more touristy.
Overall, I had a great relaxing weekend in Alligator Point, Florida! If you are looking for a vacation that is off the beaten path, then I would definitely suggest checking this beach town out.
Do you prefer touristy or secluded vacations?
