One popular excursion is the St. George Island Lighthouse tour. This is one of the most popular attractions because you can take sunset-moonrise tours for an amazing view that cannot be beat. This lighthouse has been beautifully preserved, and it's sure to please people of all ages. If you're looking for a little more solitude, then consider renting private homes in Mexico Beach. From here, you can easily take advantage of all the water activities, including chartered boat trips.
At St. George Island State Park, you can take in amazing dunes, a bay forest and impressive salt marshes. Loggerhead sea turtles come to this area to nest in early summer, and you may see baby turtles on the beach. If you choose to stay in the nearby condos of Polynesian Village, then you'll just be a short drive from the great beaches on the island. This region was voted the third best beach in America, and it features some of the most serene landscape in the region. They're not crowded, and that makes them perfect for laying out and relaxing or searching for seashells. You'll love the clean marshes, amazing wildlife and unmatched sunsets.
The island hosts events throughout the year, but some of the top activities on St George Island take place during the month of May, including the Chestnut Street Cemetery Ghostwalk and the Apalachicola Home & Garden Tour. There are concerts to enjoy throughout the summer months. The temperatures in May are very comfortable with an average high of 75 and average lows of 53 degrees Fahrenheit.

Florida is known for its mild climate, and you can take advantage of great weather every month of the year. The temperatures can drop down to the freezing mark in December, January and February, but daytime highs will usually reach into the 40s and 50s. In the summer, the average high temperature will be 84 or higher, and the spring and summer are particularly nice with mild daytime temperatures in the 70s. This is why many people will choose to stay in the apartments and condos of Navarre Beach when the weather turns cold in other areas. If you prefer to visit when the weather is warm, then schedule your trip for June so that you can have the higher temperatures without the heavy crowds.
While there is a small airport on the island, most people will choose to fly into Tallahassee international Airport about 70 miles away. From there, you can charter a flight to the island, or you can rent a car to make the drive. You can also choose the Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport located in Panama City Beach. However, many people will choose to simply drive to the area to enjoy their vacation.
