The charming city of Marianna is quickly becoming a Southern hub of the eco-tourism industry. The diverse dining scene is yet another reason to make a trip to this eclectic town. Locals like their food as hot as the weather, as evidenced by an abundance of barbecue and spicy Mexican cuisine. Here, the St. Louis-style barbecue ribs are slow-smoked over a fire. Sizzling fajitas come in generous portions preceded by all-you-can-eat house salsa and chips. If your heart is set on soul food, then fried okra and black-eyed peas are never far away. This close to the coast, seafood is also plentiful. Inn fact, shellfish features heavily at steakhouses and oyster bars alike.
