Panama City Beach

The coast of Northwest Florida is known as the Forgotten Coast, for the developments that have mushroomed throughout much of the southeast largely passed by this place. There are a few exceptions of course: Panama City Beach has a long strip of amusement parks, arcades, bars, and eateries, and it is a hot spot for many vacationers. Yet once travelers leave the heart of Panama City Beach, they find mile after mile of sandy beaches, lots of opportunities for outdoor recreation, and few crowds.

Panama City Beach offers a pleasant diversion for guests of Northwest Florida Bed and Breakfasts, and it is certainly worth a look. Yet folks seeking unspoiled beaches, quaint towns, and good surfing spots should also plan to spend some time in Mexico Beach. (more…)

Flagler Beach

Flagler Beach is a quiet town on the Palm Coast of Northeast Florida, 30 minutes north of Daytona Beach and 45 minutes south of St. Augustine. There are just under 20 miles of pristine beaches here, and few crowds. People visit the area and stay in Flagler Beach bed and breakfasts because of the beautiful natural surroundings, strong arts and culture, and outdoor recreation. Surfing is particularly popular here, for some of the biggest waves in Florida hit this stretch of the Palm Coast.

Swim with the dolphins at Flagler Beach.

Flagler Beach may be best known for its 800′ long pier – a paradise for fishing. No matter the weather, intrepid anglers may be seen dangling their lines off the pier. If you like to fish, consider booking a room in a Flagler Beach bed and breakfast; you’ll want a big, healthy breakfast in you when you battle a big one.

If you can tear yourself away from the Pier, browse the many shops and restaurants along the waterfront, and consider a trip to the Flagler Beach Historical Museum. It provides a thorough history of the region- from the Stone Age to the present. See prehistoric bones, dehydrated astronaut food and much, much more. (more…)
