Welcome to Cape San Blas & Port St Joe
Across the bay, which has gentle rip- and current-free swimming, the town of Port St Joe was once known as 'sin city' for the casinos and bordellos that greeted seafarers. Note the switch in time zones from Central to Eastern here: even though Port St Joe is west of some Central Time communities, it goes by Eastern Time.
The Florida Constitution was originally drafted here in 1838, but scarlet fever and hurricanes combined to stymie its progression as one of Florida's boom towns. These days it's anchored by a small historic district that can occupy a visitor for an hour or so.
