This fall has already seemed colder than usual in most of the US. I can’t imagine how the winter is going to be! I’m already dreaming of blue skies and the warm sun on my back with a perfect breeze against my face. I guess that’s what happens usually; in the winter I yearn for spring, in the summer I yearn for colder months.
Gulf County, Florida makes it easier for you to access your dreams of sunny skies in the winter time. So come visit GCFL! With 43 miles of natural shoreline, the gulf almost everywhere you turn, almost no high-rises, and busy highways far away, being in Gulf County makes you feel like you’ve stepped back in time. With two stoplights and spotty Wi-Fi, it is the perfect place to unplug and unwind. It would be perfect for Mark and me, knowing how hard it is for us to disconnect.
GCFL has so many events and things to do in the winter. I’d love to go kayaking and horseback riding along the beach, but a sunset cruise would be the think I’d love most to do. Since many of the beaches are westward-facing, the sunsets are spectacular.
You have your pick of adventures around every corner of GCFL, even in the winter. The St. Joseph Bay Buffer Preserve has dozens of rare plants, and hikes through St. Joseph Peninsula State Park will give you scenes of white sand dunes as big as a house. Kayaking the mysterious Dead Lakes will give you a surprise with every turn, including beautiful Cypress trees. Fish off a pier, build a bonfire and stargaze at night, or ride a bike along the seaside. The adventures are endless!
You’ll feel just at home with get-togethers hosted by GCFL from January till March. It’s so friendly that you’ll meet life-long friends at their winter fun events. From cocktail hours to cruises to karaoke, it’s easy to meet friendly faces.
The best part for me?! GCFL is very pet-friendly. Yay!
