Consider the Gulf (or How I Spent My Summer Vacation)
Labor Day has always marked the end of summer for me. This year as I have done for many years I spent my vacation soaking up rays on the emerald sands of Panama City Beach, Florida. And while I was concerned about the potential fallout from the BP oil disaster I can honestly say that there were no tar balls or oil slicks in the water during my stay. This year more than ever I wanted to support my home away from home.
My stay, however, was not altruistic. My family had a blast enjoying both the natural and man made amenities of the area! If you have never had the pleasure of visiting you’re in for a real treat! Starting with the brand spanking new Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport getting to the area has never been easier. And after you have unpacked there are nearly endless activities to partake in (besides lounging on one of the whitest and softest beaches in the world) including: browsing through the one million square feet entertainment-shopping complex Pier Park; swimming with dolphins at Gulf World Marine Park ; riding a virtual roller coaster at Wonderworks and cruising/dining on the Lady Anderson. Speaking of dining, there is no shortage of gastronomic opportunities in Panama City Beach, such as, mouthwatering ribs at Pineapple Willy's, fine dining at Boar's Head and my personal favorite for the best seafood on the Gulf Captain Anderson's.
So take it from me for your next vacation consider the Gulf. You won’t be disappointed!
