Please advise "Do Not Miss Items" in the subject area and time. Navel Air Museum in Pensacola is already #1 on my list.
We will be based in Panama City and will have wheels and looks like cheap gas, too. So, go go go will be no problem.
Our major interests are general aviation flying, boating (sail and BW's), and good food (especially dock side.)

If you get near Apalachicola, make sure to stop for a few meals.
I also seek out dockside food. Boss Oyster is a great seafood 'dive' right on the river. Inside and outside seating. The food isn't fancy or pretentious, just real good. Great service & atmosphere. This is still a real working waterfront, kind of gritty in a good way.
The Owl Cafe is a very nice place for dinner. Tamara's Cafe Floridita is a great evening choice, funky, lively, well visited by the locals. Both of these restaurants are only a block off the waterfront in the downtown area.
St. George Island is about 12 miles away via a couple of bridges. The Blue Parrot is a good, fun beachfront place. Nothing spectacular, but hey, it's right on the Gulf. St. George Island State Park is at the extreme eastern end of the island, it's always highly rated on all the top beaches lists. Miles of great beaches, very few lightly used that time of year.
Have a good trip.

If you enjoy oysters, make sure you have dinner at JMichaels on Thomas Drive. They are right on the point of N. Lagoon Dr and Thomas before you go over the small bridge in PCB. Oysters are $5.95 doz and the freshest I have ever had. They also do Hook and Cook for $7.00 a person if you have any luck fishing.
