City of Sopchoppy

Description

The charming town of Sopchoppy is a gateway community to the Byway. Mayberry will come to mind as white picket fences frame your drive into town and the Black Lab reluctantly gives up his station in the middle of the street. Over 100 years ago Sopchoppy was a bustling railroad town, with a depot built in 1893. Shops and restaurants date from the early 1900s. In 1906 the Carrabelle, Tallahassee, and Georgia Railroad ran through town. The old depot is still standing and open to the public. Sopchoppy is now a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. Kayaking, hiking, swimming, fishing, hunting, and birding are a few of the activities to be enjoyed. There are many musicians and two recording studios in the area as well. Sopchoppy is also known as the Worm Gruntin' capital of the world, and locals still practice the art of coaxing earthworms from the ground to sell as bait. Sopchoppy also provides the best view of, and access to, the Sopchoppy River at Myron B. Hodge City Park.
