Travel Update from the Franklin County Emergency Management office & CDC on May 5, 2020:

Cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) have now been reported in all states, and some areas are experiencing community spread of the disease. Travel increases your chances of getting and spreading COVID-19. Travel may also expose you to new parts of the country with differing levels of community transmission. And, if you’re infected, your travel may put others at risk– along the way, at your destination, and when you return home. You are responsible for keeping yourself and others safe at all times.
CDC recommends you stay home as much as possible, especially if your trip is not essential, and practice social distancing especially if you are at higher risk of severe illness. Don’t travel if you are sick or travel with someone who is sick.
Residents from Louisiana, Connecticut, New Jersey and New York are still advised to isolate or quarantine for a period of 14 days from the time of entry into Florida or the duration of the individual’s presence in Florida, whichever is shorter.
If you are coming from any other area of community spread, please stay home. Now is not the time to travel for non-essential trips and potentially exposing residents in our communities.
If you must travel for essential purposes, please follow the CDC guidelines at:…/2019-…/travelers/travel-in-the-us.html

Three pristine rivers converge at Carrabelle and connect with the Gulf of Mexico, providing access to unstressed salt and freshwaster fishing grounds. Redfish, Grouper, Snapper, Trout, Cobia, Shrimp and Scallops: just a sample of the species that inhabit our waters.  And don't forget our world famous Apalachicola Bay Oysters!

Carrabelle's waterfront combines the authenticity of a working waterfront with the fun of recreational fishing and boating. Charter fishing is readily available. Carrabelle connects to 750,000 acres of public forest for hunting, hiking, birding, trail-riding or just enjoying the passage of eagles, deer, blue heron, osprey and black bear. White sand beaches at Carrabelle Beach, St. George Island, and Alligator Point beckon beachcombers, swimmers and snorkelers. A full-service airport provides for recreational flying as well as easy access to the area (X13).

In Carrabelle you experience "Old Florida". There are no high rise hotels and condominiums blocking your view, no four lane traffic congestion, just beautiful beaches, rich river marshes, boundless wildlife and a genuine welcoming spirit.
