    Want to Extend your trip?

    Apalachicola is a great place to visit and you may want to stay longer than our KAAF fly-in lunch allows. Consider staying in one of the several Inns, B&B’s or lodges in the town. (Be sure to watch for two night stay requirements at some properties.) Walking around town is fun, and you can soak up the panhandle ambiance and the sights of the forgotten coast. If you stay in that general vicinity, it is easy to get around and restaurants are within walking distance of the center of Apalachicola.

    For more information on lodging, restaurants, and sites to see, visit the Apalachicola Chamber of Commerce at: http://www.apalachicolabay.org/
