Everytime I think about taking a vacation, I think about the sandy white beaches in the Florida panhandle. My grandparents used to stay in Fort Walton Beach for the winter when I was younger and we would visit periodically. I have been back several times since I have been an adult and I have never been disappointed. The beaches are absolutely beautiful. The condos that we have stayed in have been right on the beach and they have been perfect. There is plenty of shopping in Destin and restaurants are abundant. I have 3 younger children and they have had a great time as well. I would highly recomment the panhandle and especially Fort Walton Beach/ Destin.
