The Florida Panhandle
The Florida panhandle is the best kept secret in the southeastern United States. Stretching from Pensacola to Apalachicola, the area is home to some the world's most beautiful beaches. The Florida panhandle is the second most visited destination in Florida behind Disney World in Orlando. To covey the richness of the region with its white sandy beaches and sparkling green waters, the area has been coined 'Florida’s Emerald Coast."
The panhandle is a land of superlatives, its home to the largest military installation in the Western Hemisphere Eglin Air Force Base, which supports a host of defense related industries and Joint Strike Fighter training. While also being home to the Florida's most glorious white sand beaches and the most productive fishing waters off Destin.
The area has four deep water ports located in Pensacola, Freeport, Panama City and Port St. Joe. Opening in 2010 is the new Bay County Northwest International Airport which is the first new airport to be built in Florida in 20 years.
The Florida panhandle is rich in history, but the area’s greatest day’s are in the future.
