Riverway South Apalachicola Choctawhatchee

Explore Our Florida

Situated between the emerald green waters and white sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico and the upland forest bluffs of Florida's highest vistas, RiverWay South Apalachicola Choctawhatchee is the center of northwest Florida's rich agricultural, cultural, historical, maritime and nature-based resources.

Vast river basins offer endless recreational opportunities that include hiking, horseback riding, biking, birding, fishing, cave diving, paddling, spelunking and more. It all awaits exploration through forests, tributaries, springs, creeks, caverns, coastlines, trails, and scenic byways.

RiverWay South is home to some of the world's most delectable seafood, including Apalachicola oysters, homegrown culinary delights such as tupelo honey, mayhaw jelly, fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as local dairies and vineyards just waiting for tasting.

Distinctive culture and heritage threads are woven into the fabric of our community's collective history of Native Americans, explorers, and settlers.  Visitors can trace their steps or their oar strokes along the many land and maritime heritage trails.

Visitors can stroll through our quaint downtowns and small communities that offer antiques, handcrafts, shopping, dining, and accommodations that combine comfort with the charm of unspoiled Florida.  For those with an artistic side, they will also find a wide variety of music venues, galleries, museums, and festivals.

So whether a visitor's pleasures lie indoors or outdoors, uptown or downtown, they can come by land, sea, or river to discover Northwest Florida's RiverWay South Apalachicola Choctawhatchee region.
