Clayton’s Adventures on the Gulf

In this exciting new blog series, come along with Clayton as he explores our area, and all of the adventures it has to offer.

Rich with history, and beaming with beauty as you pass through Port St. Joe, The Cape San Blas Lighthouse has been a local landmark for years.  Built well over 100 years ago, the lighthouse was moved from its home on Cape San Blas to take up residence on the shores of St. Joseph Bay at beautiful George Core Park.

Clayton stopped by the Lighthouse Gift Shop this week, and was thrilled to learn that they allow people to climb this historic landmark…and that’s just what he did.

Be sure to stop by on your next visit to the area.  Bring a picnic basket and a blanket, and make an afternoon of it.  George Core Park offers a relaxed setting with St. Joseph Bay as a backdrop.  It doesn’t get any better.
