Thinking about a vacation on the Florida Panhandle? The best place and where to stay on the beach in my opinion are Panama City Beach vacation rentals. Much more affordable than hotels.
My last trip to PCB had me with sticker shock. We went to a popular beachside restaurant and ordered burgers and cocktails. There were four of us. The bill? $220!
I have never spent so much money on burgers and a few drinks in my life, but that is the world we are living in right now. So this last trip, we opted for a vacation rental literally right on the beach.
When I compared this getaway to the current rates for a hotel we used to stay in, the cost of the vacation rental was less than half.
