#1 USA Beach in 2002 and Most Dog-Friendly City in 2015
By Deborah S. Nelson, Author/Publisher VRTG
In-between the Gulf Coast of Mexico and St. Joseph Bay at the southernmost tip of Florida sits the beautiful, yet hidden Cape San Blas. This barrier peninsula stretches along 17-miles of sugary white sand beaches and gentle, clear waters. Now, if you love to pick vacation spots based on honors and awards, here are some reasons to visit Cape San Blas. In 2002, Dr. Beach rated Cape San Blas as the #1 Beach in the United States. On the other hand, Cape San Blas is the most dog-friendly city in America in 2015.
Furthermore, the St. Joseph Peninsula State Park is rated one of the best state parks in the United States and one of the best beaches in the nation. Notably, the park is also home to some of Florida’s oldest and highest sand dunes. Finally, the flourishing marine life, the natural reefs, and the ancient shipwrecks make the Cape one of the leading diving, snorkeling, and fishing spots. The Cape San Blas beaches are definitely a unique sight to see. However, the best part is you get to bring your pets and family with you.

Beyond the Coast in the San Blas Area
Obviously, Cape San Blas offers more than simple beach activities. For example, scuba diving through the Empire Mica or an oil tanker sunk by a German U-Boat in World War II is an outstanding adventure. Nevertheless, Cape San Blas is home to numerous museums, two state parks, and a national park. In addition, bicycling, hiking, jogging, or even walking are great ways to explore. Horseback riding is also a crowd favorite. However, if you are looking for an inexpensive activity, bring or rent a telescope and stargaze. Notably, the Cape is famous for beautiful and clear night skies. Plus, warm evenings are perfect for romantic dinners. Thankfully, Sunset Reflections is near several impressive restaurants as well. Try them all and let us know which one is best.
