City of Port St. Joe, Florida

This quaint town boasts picturesque beaches of white sand, charming antique shops, and some of the best local fishing around. Port St. Joe almost became the capital of Florida in the 19th century.

Visitors to this area can take a self-guided tour through the museum that houses displays from the mid 1800s when Florida hosted its first State Constitution Convention. The constitution became the Organic Law of Florida after four more constitution conventions and Florida was finally admitted to the Union as the 27th state. There are actual artifacts from this time period and an audio-animated mannequin demonstration of the debates and the process of drafting a state constitution. It's definitely a history lesson if you happen to stop by!

Constitution Convention

Welcome to T.H. Stone Memorial St. Joseph Peninsula State Park. This state park is 20 miles full of white sand beaches, dunes, marsh, and wildlife. A self-proclaimed "wildlife haven," T.H. Stone Memorial is home to three species of sea turtles, the endangered St. Andrews beach mouse, and many beach nesting birds, including the snowy plover. A trip to this state park is a perfect opportunity to go bird watching or simply to observe the park's wildlife. Bobcats, otters, deer, and armadillos are among the many animals you can catch a glimpse of.
