About the Florida Panhandle
The Emerald Coast and Forgotten Coast regions of northwestern Florida offer a low-key alternative to the Sunshine State's more illustrious beach destinations, with relatively low-density development along more than 200 miles of scenic Gulf of Mexico shoreline. The Florida Panhandle is also home to two appealing cities, historic Pensacola and the state capital, Tallahassee.
