Our first stop to celebrate Florida’s 500 years of tourism was to the Panhandle. Sure, Ponce de Leon arrived on the other coast, but the white sandy beaches of Panama City and Destin are our favorites in the winter months. Even when it is a windy and rainy day! And our newest discovery is Holiday Isle, a community of private homes and resorts set along canals and beachfront. Our vacation rental was a wonderful six bedroom cottage with its own dock, heated pool and hot tub located a short walk from the beach.
About the Elliotts
We're on an open-ended around-the-world trip with the kids. No mission statement. No motto. We'll think of a reason later.
The next adventure
Follow us on our upcoming adventure, Wedding Season Escapades, as we travel cross-country from Florida to Kari's cousin's wedding in Ohio, on through to Canada for marching season in Ontario, then off to coastal New Brunswick, the seaports of Maine, New York's interior countryside, the politically charged Washington, D.C. and finally Chris' cousin's wedding and family reunion in Georgia. Phew!
The Turtle List
The turtle is the ultimate traveler. That's why we recognize kindred spirits with an exclusive turtle pin and by adding them to this list. Have a look here.
