Just a stone trow away from the northern Florida beaches The gulf shores is a 22 mile peninsula with gorgeous white beaches. It is mainly beach homes and a few condo units and a few holets that fill this long strch of beach. At the end there is a fort and a fishing pir which is great to catch some crabs. The water is clear and dolphin can be easily spotted. This is a great family trip where kids can enjoy the beach freely. Don't forget to hike the wonderfull nature park and bring your camera.
