Florida Panhandle Vacations & Travel Tips

When to Go

During the spring, the Gulf waters are warm and temperatures are mild. There’s lots of sunshine, also, in the spring and summer. Summer temperatures can reach the 80s F, while winter temperatures can range from the low 40s to the 60s. Most of the region’s activities take place during spring, summer and early fall. There are festivals scattered throughout the year, such as the state’s oldest maritime event, the internationally renowned Florida Seafood Festival, held every October in historic Apalachicola.

Fast Facts

While two of the most famous regions of the Florida Panhandle are Pensacola and Panama City, there are several lesser-known jewels such as Dog Island, Grayton Beach and Blue Mountain Beach. The Panhandle offers far more than sparkling beaches.

Florida’s largest forest, the 938-square-mile Apalachicola National Forest, lies just west of Tallahassee.

Each year in January, some of the best singer/songwriters come to the Panhandle for the 30A Songwriters Festival. The region boasts one of the country’s last great roadhouses, the Flora-Bama Lounge, located near the Alabama state line in Perdido Key.
