The City of Wewahitchka is located in the Florida Panhandle, in northern Gulf County. With a population of approximately 1,800 citizens, the city is best known for two of its unique assets; the Dead Lakes and Tupelo Honey.
The city's Seminole Indian name means "water eyes", and a view from the sky above reveals why -- two almost perfectly round lakes nestled into the heart of this community add to the community's relaxed charm, and make a special backdrop to the city's downtown Lake Alice Park. The Dead Lakes offer some of the best freshwater sports fishing in the nation, and a unique opportunity for nature photographers. Bass anglers regularly travel to this area to lure, then wrestle one of the "big boys" out of the cypress tree stumps that give the lake its name, and nature photographers join other outdoor lovers to capture a glimpse of this hauntingly beautiful body of water.
