Panama City Beach

My family is vacationing in Panama City Beach in about 6 weeks. They want to lay around on the beach. I want to rent a bike and ride.
Who has been there? Fill me in on where to go!

Get on hwy 98 and head west to Pensacola Beach.it's a short days ride , up and back.
Head east on 98 into Port St.Joe . You can ride out onto the peninsula state park there. A good half day ride. Plenty to see , but no real nice riding roads, straight & flat in the Panhandle.

2010 FLTRX , Stage 1, 13" Madstad, Mono tubes, SuperShox, Heritage style bars. Alpine CDE-HD149BT,Soundstream Picasso Nano Series PN4.520 , 5X7 and 6.5 Infinity Kappa speakers
If I have to explain ,you wouldn't under stand anyway.

I agree, Highway 98 is gorgeous. I used to live in the Ft. Walton Beach area many years ago. I got back for the first time about 2 years ago. Here are a couple of photos from that trip. these were all from either Ft Walton Beach or Destin, depending on the picture. Highway 98 will take you within a couple hundred yards of where these were taken when you are riding down Okaloosa Island.

Thanks for the input. How is the traffic? Are we talking 4 lane interstate, two lane, etc?

Some of it is 4-lane divided highway and a lot of it is two lane . The scenery is great even if there are no turns.

I'm local to the area, my riding preferences are mostly East of PC, Mexico Beach, Cape San Blas, Carravelle...

Jack, let me know if / when you are coming down this way...
