About The Area: St. Joe Beach, Florida
What's in a name? Is it historical, geographical, political, emotional, or perhaps recreational? Some areas have several while others have only a few such characteristics enticing our yearly visitors, but the rarity of Port St. Joe and St. Joe Beach is that they have all and then some. If you are a "practicing" archaeologist or historian, you can quickly immerse yourself in the historical happenings of our early Native American, Spanish, or French settlers. You can then "travel" forward through the days of British control and the settling of the territory which culminated in the hosting of the first State Constitutional Convention and the signing of the original State Constitution which continues to amaze thousands enshrined prominently on display in the State's capital of Tallahassee. If, however, you want to see a majestic replication of this very same Constitution, just take a short trip into historical Port St. Joe. After being spellbound by all that the town's history has to offer, take some spectacular family photos with the Monument, the Constitutional Museum, and the historical Centennial Building as one unique back drop for that perfect photo moment. Then turn your backs toward the most magnificent array of colors just as the sun sets over the beautiful, pristine St. Joseph's Bay for another stunning photo op. You will take home the perfect memento to share with family and friends as, with words, you try to do justice to the natural, serene beauty of our spectacular sunsets and their plethora of colors. You may have difficulty explaining the peace that comes with simply watching the ever moving, ever gliding vessels of all sizes, shapes, and structures. And as for the delicious, succulent, fresh-as-can-be seafood served up in dozens of mouth-watering, delectable delights, that's just a taste that can only be described by experiencing it first hand.
There's much to be said about spending time exploring the wonders of a town's early founders - its history and government and all the many facets of a city which takes its rightful place in the annuals of our State's chronology. While that may be the interest for some, many more visitors come to St. Joe Beach simply for the view of the unbelievably beautiful natural environment... the shear beauty of the crystal white sand, the swaying dance of the lush green sea oats in the ever present ocean breeze, the hint of just the right taste of salt as you take in a deep breath of ocean air. The sparkling aqua green waves tipped in the whitest of ocean foam rolling continuously homeward bound serve as a beacon to that perfect vacation cottage. If you choose St. Joe Beach, you'll not become the vacationer who is met with the horror of climbing over mounds of human bodies, working feverously for a spot to set up the family tent, jockeying for a safe place to park or launch your boat at St. Joe Beach. How could anyone dream a more perfect vacation spot to relax, unwind, rejuvenate, and invigorate the mind, body, and soul? If this description conjures up those similar to the ones you so often envision but never fulfill, now is the time to make your plans for just such a perfect vacation. We love our guests and we revel in making those dreams come true.
