Located right on the Gulf of Mexico, Apalachicola, Florida, is known for its succulent bay oysters. The historic subtropical fishing port is a small community that's off the beaten path. You'll enjoy Apalachicola’s salty seafood delicacies, which are sold not only in Key West, but all the way up to New York City. While there are a few five-star Asian and Mexican bistros on the Gulf Coast, the majority of the waterfront eateries specialize in haute seafood cuisine. However, the colorful presentation of Asian meat and vegetables in sauce is a refreshing change from the area seafood. In downtown Apalachicola, be sure to visit the local brewery for light to dark home-brewed beers with signature seafood entrees.
