The Forgotten Coast and Tupelo Honey
Port St. Joe, Apalachicola, St. George Island -- these are among the small coastal communities that welcome you to a quiet corner of the Florida Panhandle known as the Forgotten Coast. Just a few miles inland from the coast, you will find Smiley Honey in the town of Wewahitchka. "Wewa" as the locals call it, is famous for two things - the Dead Lakes and Tupelo Honey and they are intertwined. Tupelo trees like to have "wet feet" and grow in abundance within the Apalachicola and Chipola river systems.
So come on down and pay us a visit. Paddle a kayak around the beautiful and serene Dead Lakes. You can contact Captain Matt at Off the Map Expeditions for a guided tour of the Dead Lakes. Afterwards, sink your toes into the white sands of the Florida Gulf Coast. Then enjoy some fresh seafood at a local eatery. And before you leave, stop by our place in Wewahitchka and stock up on some of our enchanting tupelo honey.
