    Hubby and I have a rare opportunity this weekend to take off for a couple days on a much needed mini-vacation. Problem is, we don't know where to go. We're sort of limited as we live in Panama City, and we want to get far away from here and places like here, though we'd still like to go to a beach.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on a good place for us to go? I'd personally like to go to a big city, but a small quaint city that's relaxing but still has stuff to do (and a great view) would be great, too!

    Driving. And the keys would be wonderful, but we live in the panhandle, which is like, lower AL than counting as FL, so it would take a loooooooooooooong time to get there :)

    Panhandle huh, how about Pensacola. Some cool old Military Forts to tour as well as the Naval Air Base (Blue Angels practice). Decent beaches too, good fishing.

    I guess that's kind of guy stuff...

    Destin? Orange Beach? That's where hubby & I go for a weekend to just get away... condo there but you could easily rent one. We live ON the coast too with beaches but just getting away is nice.

    I could suggest some REALLY nice places, quaint but great sight seeing, etc but they are a bit a drive. How far are you willing to drive?

    Where is Orange Beach? We're willing to drive pretty far, up to 6 hours or so. We're considering Biloxi at the moment, but neither of us gamble, so wondering if there's other stuff to do there.

    I live in Biloxi :)
    there is always something going on over the weekends. some festival, markets, shows, etc. There are also big concerts, comedians and shows at the casinos.

    Orange Beach/Gulf Shores is about an hour from Destin, this side( west). We love it!!! Its a bit quieter than Destin but about the same when it comes to things to do, see, eat, etc...
