Florida's Forgotten Coast

Florida's Forgotten Coast is the name commonly used to refer to a quiet section of coastline stretching from Mexico Beach to St. Marks in the U.S. state of Florida, including the areas of Port St. Joe, Cape San Blas, Indian Pass, Apalachicola, St. George Island, Eastpoint, and Lanark Village. The Forgotten Coast got its name in the early nineties when a Florida tourism group "forgot" to include information on this area on their map. This prompted a local group to create their own brochure and map and call this area the Forgotten Coast.
