COMMUNITY SHOWCASE featuring ST MARKS, FL
Located at the end of the road which points toward Apalachee Bay, the quaint gulf port town of St. Marks is positioned between the St. Marks and Wakulla rivers. The town is steeped in a rich history that began long before Fort San Marcos de Apalachee was established by the Spanish in the 1600s. Florida’s first railroad once connected the port with the nearby capital of Tallahassee, and the abandoned rail line now serves as a popular bicycle and equestrian trail. St. Marks, standing ready with a large marina, bed & breakfast inn, restaurants, fish camp, outfitters, an attractive city park, and an historic lighthouse nearby, caters to the outdoor enthusiast, sightseer, and nature lover. A fun time can always be found in St. Marks and the surrounding area, which plays host to several festivals throughout the year, and is now a flyover site for watching the winter arrival of the endangered whooping cranes as they make their way to the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge.
