We stayed the first week of June 2011. Our party included two teenagers, a 6 year old, an 18 month old, two 60+, and four 30+. We stayed at Mint to Be right on the gulf, it was a beautiful vacation home, very accomodating. We were looking for relaxation and tranquility, and we certainly found it. Most days, we had the beach completely to ourselves. If you are looking for a place that has shopping and places to eat, it's not a good place to go. There is only one restaurant that serves burgers, subs, pizza, and ice cream - Coneheads. We didn't eat there, so I don't know what the food is like. There is one gas station that also sells hot/cold sandwiches and such; they also sell souveniers. There is one other place called "The Trading Post." They sell everything the gas station does except for gas. We went shopping in Port St Joe one day, it was about a 15 min drive. They had some nice shops. We drove to Appalachicola one night and ate at a seafood grill, I can't remember the name(I apologize). It was pretty good...I am still baffled by the fact that we had to drive so far to find a seafood restaurant. They have little seafood markets in the area where you can buy seafood to cook. We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation, and didn't want to leave. The water was beautiful, the weather was perfect, and the shelling was fun. We bought large round tubes and rode the waves every evening. The kids loved that the most, I think. We didn't see any jellyfish at all. The guys fished from the shore and water daily. They caught a lot of whiting, they aren't good for eating, but they were just fishing for sport anyway. Not many crabs or turtles were spotted. The shells were beautiful, and easy to find. So much fun. I can't wait to visit again!!!
