I think everyone knows that my family and I live in that wickedly cold state of Minnesota. The winters are painfully long and usually by December we’re starting to plan our winter getaway to a warmer part of the world.
If I let my boys be involved in picking out the vacation spot, we always go to Florida! Every Time! I was lookin up information and found an adorable new place that I want to pack my backs and jet off to asap!
Located in Northwest Florida, Gulf County has 43 miles of natural shoreline! With no high-rises or busy highways but simply surrounded by water. Just look at this beautiful view you get to enjoy every single day!
Some Facts About Gulf County You Will Love:
- With two time zones, only two stoplights and spotty Wi-Fi, our beautiful beaches truly let you unplug and connect with the most important thing – your loved ones.
