Top Gulf Coast Towns For Your Next RV Trip


Time to plan your next trip! Traveling is always a good idea, and it's an even better idea if it’s a road trip along the Gulf Coast of Florida. In Florida, there’s never a bad time of the year to roll the RV out of your storage unit and explore one of the most beautiful coasts in the nation. Florida is always a great destination for those who are seeking warm weather and stunning beaches and, for those who didn’t know, the Gulf Coast expands its shores all the way down to Texas. Whether you’re escaping the cold of winter or chasing the best waves, here are some of the top Gulf Coast towns for your next RV trip.

Emerald Coast: The Gem of Florida Coast

The Emerald Coast is an unofficial name for the coastal area in the state of Florida. From Panama City Beach to Pensacola, this region has earned its name due to the stunning emerald green water. If you want to enjoy the sugary white sand of the Caribbean without staying in an all-inclusive resort full of people, this is without a doubt the place you should go. The Gulf Islands National Seashore, between Pensacola Beach and Navarre, is a must-see-place with a well-deserved spot on your travel itinerary. Boasting 10 miles of paved bike paths and easily traveled roads that connect charming towns along the way, the Gulf Island National Seashore on the Emerald Coast is perfect for those seeking warm weather, beautiful sunshine and amazing beaches.

The Town of Apalachicola: Little Fishing Town, Miles of Beaches

The quaint fishing town of Apalachicola offers waterfront parks, delicious seafood, and numerous outdoor activities such as kayaking, fishing, or even a relaxing afternoon on one of their marvelous beaches. While there, learn a little bit about this town’s past as a thriving oyster, timber and fishing industries. Within easy range of Apalachicola, you will find miles of immaculate and natural beaches of St. George Island, an endless shore of protected shallow bays. Wrap up a great day on the beach with some of the fresh and delicious seafood straight form the source. Nature will make fall in love with the town, and the welcoming nature of the Apalachicola community will make you want to come back.

Gulfport, Mississippi: The Calm After the Storm

Gulfport was almost completely destroyed by Hurricane Katrina, but that didn’t stop this beach town from rebuilding itself. Gulfport is the second largest city in Mississippi after the state capital, Jackson. Home to 26 miles of beautiful beaches, water fun and the historic Fort Massachusetts, Gulfport is a great coastal spot to make memories full of adventure, excitement, and sample the best barbecue shrimp you’ve tasted.
