The cavern tour was beyond expectation which was mostly due to our comedic tour guide, Dawson! Good job, Dawson. Don't forget to replace your lighter. 😉 We will be planning a flashlight tour in the future.

We had an amazing time. Our teenagers had fun exploring the Caverns, the trails and learning about the importance of bats. We were disappointed about not being able to go sweeming in the spring due to excessive amount of rain.

Yes I would think that would be ok. It’s a very small area to place them.

I saw this on the site for Fort Walton Beach. Has anyone ever been there? Is it very far from Destin?

It is up north of Panama City off RT 231. near Marianna. We were there years ago and did a little diving. It will take you a 1-1/2 hours or so - this is a guesstimate.

Cape San Blas to Pensacola to Florida Caverns State Park?? (1 Replies)
The week of Thanksgiving, we're taking a family trip up to the Panhandle. First two nights we have booked at Old Iron Saltworks in Cape San Blas. After that we want to head to Pensacola for the Naval air museum and then over to the Florida Caverns State Park and possibly Falling Waters State Park & Torreya State Park. We don't have reservations the next two nights as we plan to play it by ear. I'm interested in any suggestions for great casual restaurants, places to stay, and fun family...More

Sounds like fun, we spend Thanksgiving at old Saltworks and Cape San Blas is the only place to gather shells, literally! If you are around Friday absolutely go to Apalachicola for the Christmas celebration. Fun and definitely off the beaten path. Right outside the Fl Caverns Park is a wonderful restaurant-who's name escapes me but is right outside the park entrace. The Zoo is small but worth a visit. Sadly a lot of places in our area (we're in Ft Walton)are hurricane hammered, Seville Quarter...More
