  • Beach Vacation

    "This is my second stay at Cape Villas and I can't say enough wonderful things about this little piece of paradise! I love the seclusion and quaintness of Port St. Joe. My husband loved fishing from the beach, he caught a lot of catfish and small black tip shark's. The dolphins where very active as well! :) Having dinner at the Indian Pass Raw Bar is a must!! The Sunset Grill is fantastic as well. Steve, the owner is very friendly and helpful. Looking forward to coming back next year!!"

  • Beach Colony Pent House on Navarre Beach

    "This unit is everything as advertised. The view is outstanding, including the view from the master bath. My wife made two cakes and commented the kitchen has everything a vacationing cook would need. The blender leaked, we let the owner know and she had a new one delivered in two days. That was one example of the personal service Catherine works to provide. Both flat screen TVs are nice. Ipod sound system in the litchen. Xtra large washer and dryer for those heavy wet beach towels. The pool is large, never a problem feeling over crowded even on the holiday weekend. Beach service provided by the owner was friendly and professional. I will mention to speak with the beach crew the day you arrive because those chairs are a hot commodity, especially on the weekend or holidays. The ultimate question for a vacationer...would I choose this unit again? Absolutely. This is a good investment in family vacation dollars. Enjoy"

  • What a relaxing vacation!

    "My family stayed at Barefoot on the Beach from 6/28/14 - 7/5/14. I was pleasantly surprised with how exceptionally clean the townhouse was when we arrived. I was also very happy about the size of the townhouse. It’s very large and each member of my family had their own space to relax or play. It’s hands-down the best location in Barrier Dunes and closest to the sand! In addition, the beach views are beautiful from every room! I enjoyed my coffee on the deck every single morning. And we appreciated the bbq pit for grilling nearly every night. The window seat in the dining room ended up being a favorite spot for the kids. The beach was magnificent with soft white sand, plenty of shells, and crystal clear water. Definitely a place to relax and recharge!"

Florida Main North West Travel Tips

Northwest Florida, aka the Florida Panhandle, is known for its stellar white sand beaches and glowing blue-green waters. The beaches of northwest Florida provide the area's most popular attractions for visitors. Surrounding the surf and sand are a variety of parks, restaurants and shops. Within this region is the Emerald Coast that runs from Pensacola to Port St. Joe, and the Forgotten Coast that runs from Mexico Beach to St. Marks.

Things to Do in Northwest Florida

National Museum of Naval Aviation: Anyone interested in space travel is sure to enjoy the rich history found here. With more than 140 restored aircraft from the Navy, Coast Guard Aviation and Marine Corps, this space offers plenty to explore. Watch a live Blue Angels flight demonstration, experience flight and motion-based simulators and learn about the interior of a cockpit.

Gulf World Marine Park: Tons of family fun can be had at Gulf World Marine Park. With the park's dolphin, scuba, sea lion and tropical bird shows, visitors can see these local animals up close and personal performing entertaining and amazing tricks and feats. As you stroll though, don’t miss Tropical Gardens, where you can pet a live string ray and visit the exhibits of otters, iguanas, alligators and penguins.

Panhandle Butterfly House: Along U.S. Highway 98 you’ll find the Navarre Visitor Center, and at the foot of the beach bridge is an interactive butterfly garden that’s home to migrating butterflies and a nursery housing local butterfly species. The facility is operated by volunteers, and visitors can take a class to learn about butterfly gardening, ecosystem management and habitat conservation. Step inside and witness dozens of types of butterflies flying around. These colorful, winged creations are certainly a sight to see.

Mission San Luis: This exciting northwestern Florida attraction is a popular living history park. More than 60 acres rest on a quiet oasis away from city living. As you walk through the park you’ll feel as though you’ve gone back in time. Examine the exhibit gallery and museum in the visitor center, which houses artifacts both excavated and from private collections. The theater produces live entertainment and a classroom offers workshops and special events. If you visit on Sunday, take an Archeology Tour to learn how the site’s been excavated and how artifacts are preserved.

Panhandle Opry: To get a taste of some good ol’ fashioned country western music, check out the Panhandle Opry on the first and third Saturday of each month. A collection of musical artists gets together to put on a traditional show for visitors who love the genre.

Pensacola Museum of Art: Situated in Pensacola’s historic Old City Jail Building, this public institution encourages creativity in visual arts with 18 annual exhibitions, workshops, lectures and films.

Pensacola Beach: Famously known for pearly white sand and stunningly green waters, Pensacola Beach is certainly one to put on the must-see list.
