Florida Panhandle Vacation Rentals
The Florida Panhandle is famous for white sand beaches along the Gulf Coast. Even though some beaches have been impacted by the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill, simply checking on local conditions for the beach you are interested in can help you make alternative plans if necessary. One should be aware that the numerous and beautiful lighthouses here alone are worth a visit.
Some of the areas that are worth a visit include the Emerald coast or Miracle Strip area. This includes Bay, Okaloosa, Walton and the Pensacola area. The Forgotten Coast includes Franklin, Gulf Jefferson and Wakulla. The area is very rural and quite lovely. Inland areas are grouped as West Florida and Middle Florida. The inland region is famous for southern charm. The major cities in the area include the state capital of Tallahassee. While here you might consider visiting the Apalachicola National Forest, the Choctawhatchee National Forest, the Gulf Islands National Seashore, Saint Marks National Wildlife Refuge, or St. Vincent National Wildlife Refuge.
The area abounds in state parks and museums. Among the most famous are the Blackwater River State Park near Milton, the Constitution Convention Museum State Park in Port St. Joe, the Eden Gardens State Park between Destin and Panama City, Falling Waters State Park in Washington County, Florida Caverns State Park in Marianna, John Gorrie Museum and the Orman House in Apalachicola, Ponce de Leon Springs State Park in Ponce de Leon, St. George Island State Park in Franklin County, St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge and San Marcos de Apalache Historic State Park in Wakulla County, St. Andrews State Park near Panama City, St. Joseph Peninsula State Park near Apalachicola, Three Rivers State Park in Jackson County, Torreya State Park in Liberty County, and Wakulla Springs south of Tallahassee.
