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. Add Florida Panhandle and other destinations to your itinerary using our United States trip itinerary planner, and learn about what to see, what to do, and where to stay.
