The Charming Beach Town of Port St. Joe, Florida

The Charming Beach Town of Port St. Joe, Florida

Gorgeous coastlines are just one reasons to visit Port St. Joe, Florida. This small town is treasure troves of great food, warm hospitality, immense history, and Southern charm. Port St. Joe, a classic beach town, is located on one of Florida’s white sandy beaches and famous gulf coast. 

No one would blame you if you spend your whole visit eating like we did, because the food is just as beautiful as the city’s architecture and ocean views. While it may seem like you can’t turn a corner without bumping into one of the best restaurants in the town, the city also has places like the historic Port Theatre for live entertainment and the Port Inn with the Thirsty Goat for late night drinks. The town is also famous for its scallops and holds the Annual Scallop Festival with headliners like country music star, Phil Vasser and Sister Hazel. Find your spot in one of the towns more down-home establishments and if you Instagram your meals like us, we wouldn’t blame you.

    My home. I love living here. Thanks for the great article. Y’all come. The waters fine. Sailing and paddle boarding and walks on the beach will clear your head and warm your heart.
