Eastpoint, Fla. - Families with small children who stop in at the I10  VISIT FLORIDA Welcome Center near the Florida border will find a fun space to be entertained and learn about Florida’s Forgotten Coast. The Franklin County TDC recently became the sponsor for a portion of the Visit Florida Welcome Center near Pensacola to create the Forgotten Coast Kid’s Corner complete with activity table, chairs, TV and a coloring and activity booklet with games to entertain them. While kids relax, adults can pick up the TDC visitor guide and map as well as browse other materials to learn about family friendly activities and events in the area and Florida.

“As families arrive to Florida we wanted to show them how family-friendly we are,” said TDC Director John Solomon. “Franklin County is the Florida You Remember and we want families to be able to create those same memories for their children. We want people to know this is a place you can reconnect with the ones you love.”

The Franklin County TDC will host the Welcome Center Kids Corner for at least three years, according to Solomon.

The Forgotten Coast Kids activity booklets that are designed and produced by the Franklin County TDC are also available locally at the four county visitor centers in Apalachicola, Eastpoint, Carrabelle and St. George Island. You can also download it at Floridasforgottencoast.com
