Area Attractions

Fishermen (& women) call this paradise. There's world class freshwater & saltwater fishing with lots of free boat ramps and beach access. Check out Dan's Fishing Report page for links to fishing guides. Do you prefer hanging out on the beach? We've got the best.

Cape San Blas was named #1 in the US in 2002 by Dr Beach. It's only 20 miles from the Dixie Belle. Just 1/4 mile from our door you have access to 10 miles of beautiful beaches which rival those of the Cape.

This part of the gulf coast is still relatively undeveloped. You don't have to pick you way through a gazillion people to get a spot on the sand. (Coming from overcrowded NJ this turned out to be a major treat.)

Anyway, all this and more is right around the corner from the Dixie Belle. Snorkeling & scuba diving, canoeing & kayaking, horseback riding on the beach, hunting, golf, fine regional dining, shopping for unique treasures, just to name a few.

Florida's first state constitution was forged right here in Port St. Joe. You can visit the museum downtown. (I took my grandkids & they liked it!) Speaking of downtown, Reid St., the main drag, as recently undergone a face lift with brick walkways, wrought iron street lamps and palm trees. Interesting shops and restaurants make Reid St a delightful stroll.

There are several fishing guide services, a local park with free boat ramps, a brand new marina with a charming restaurant serving lunch and dinner, and store to pretty much supply all the basic services you may need.

Restaurants are plentiful & many offer waterfront views of St. Joseph Bay. Check out the Gulf County Chamber of Commerce page to see the wonderful variety of good places to eat while you're here in St Joe.

One thing you can't miss is St. Joseph Peninsula State Park. Located on Cape San Blas, it offers fishing, snorkeling, swimming, nature trails, camping, boat launches, picnic areas & more. The park is a beautiful 20 minute drive from the Dixie Belle.

The Port St. Joe/Gulf County area is a special & romantic place for lovers too. Our guests have celebrated weddings, anniversaries and other special occasions.
