Scallop shell on the beach.Once the kids go back to school, it’s a pretty clear indicator that the holidays are just around the corner. Which also means many many family gatherings are headed your way. We suggest planning one last weekend Forgotten Coast FL getaway to Pristine Properties before the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. Head into your family get-together with stories about how you spent time eating fresh scallops or explored the Gulf Coast beaches by kayak! Here are a couple of activities to add to your weekend list of things to do in Florida.

Hop on a Scallop Charter

Scallop Season is in full swing and runs through mid-September on the Forgotten Coast FL, and there are many places to scallop during your getaway. While Cape San Blas is a known destination to scallop, there are other peaceful areas along the Florida west coast to explore near the Gulf Coast beaches. While you can plan a do-it-yourself scalloping adventure, we suggest taking a Scalloping Charter when it’s your first time. Since the Captains are the experts in the area, they’ll be able to find the scallops by the plenty and will give you tips and tricks on catching them!

St Joseph’s Bay Country Club

Set your tee time for a quick nine in the morning or plan a day to get in the full 18-holes on St. Joseph’s Bay Golf Club, a public course with beautiful wide-open fairways. Even if you only want to practice your swing, you’ll have the opportunity to work on your golf game on the putting green or driving range. The course is open Tuesdays through Sundays year-round and will be the perfect way to spend a leisurely afternoon relaxing on your weekend getaways to the Forgotten Coast FL.
