If you aren’t interested in scalloping Steinhatchee also offers great fishing and apparently hunting (but that is not my thing). If you don’t like the outdoors and are expecting shopping malls, Whole Foods or ANYTHING bordering on fancy, this may not be the trip for you. It really is a fishing village in every sense of the term.
Where to stay?
In Steinhatchee, rental houses are key. There is not much in the way of hotels. Two places I would recommend are
Steinhatchee Rivergate http://steinhatcheerentals.com/statement.html and
Steinhatchee Landing http://www.steinhatcheelanding.com/
What if I don’t have a boat?
A few marinas in Steinhatchee offer boat rentals. The nicest boat we have rented so far was from SeaHag Marina http://www.seahag.com/boatrentals.htm
