The Emerald Coast
Stretching over 322 km (200 mi) of beautiful coastline along the Gulf of Mexico, the Florida Panhandle encompasses an area of pristine white-sand beaches and turquoise waters, earning it the nickname the Emerald Coast. Distinguished from the rest of the Sunshine State by its laid-back southern influence, the region remains a popular tropical holiday destination for those looking to avoid the larger vacation hubs of Miami and Orlando. Explore the beachfront shops and fresh-caught seafood cafes of the region's fishing villages, or head to the bigger seaside communities of Pensacola and Panama City for a wide selection of retail and entertainment options, including some of the coast's most active nightlife.
