As the 4th of July approaches, Cape San Blas and surrounding areas come alive with summer activities. From sunny beach days spent splashing in the surf and relaxing to the sound of the waves to family barbecues and epic fireworks displays over the Gulf of Mexico, the area is full of events and festivities that light up this piece of Florida’s Forgotten Coast. With families everywhere hurrying to book their 4th of July vacation rentals, Coastal Joe is highlighting four spectacular properties that are sure to provide the perfect home-away-from-home for your family or group. As you plan your getaway, imagine sipping coffee as the sun rises over the water from your beachfront deck, enjoying a family s’mores roast over your private fire pit, or relaxing on your screened-in porch as the sea breeze rolls in after a long, fun-filled day.

Beyond the comfort and luxury of these four vacation rentals, Cape San Blas and Indian Pass boast a variety of family and kid-friendly activities that will make your trip to the beach even more memorable. On July 2nd, venture to Port St. Joe for the 7th Annual Forgotten Coast Sea Turtle Festival, where you’ll be met with food, music, a sea creature parade, and tons of opportunities to educate yourself on the importance of the ecosystem of our coastal lands. Then, on the 4th, get ready for a fireworks spectacular as Port St. Joe launches an epic display from Frank Pate Park starting at 10 pm. Fireworks can be seen from anywhere in downtown Port St. Joe, but the best vantage point will be from George Core Park, so bring a blanket and get there early to secure your spot. Whether you’re a first-time visitor or a seasoned regular, Coastal Joe Vacation Rentals is the key to crafting a magical summer getaway.
