We love going to St. George Island, Florida! It is a beautiful barrier island in the Forgotten Coast part of the state. Located right outside of Appalachicola and about 60 minutes southwest of Tallahassee. The state park at the east end of the island was once named the best beach in the country. There are very few hotels on the island and very little commercialism. Most of the stores are restaurants on the island are locally owned, except for Piggly Wiggly and Subway. We have been going down there close to 15 years and have stayed in rental homes all over the island.
