Fort Lauderdale and Panama City beaches are extremely beautiful and although likely to be busier, have plenty to keep the family otherwise amused. Panama City is famed for its amusement parks, while Fort Lauderdale boasts the Science and Discovery Museum and the Flamingo Gardens. Fort Walton and Fernandina beaches offer similar beauty but are likely to be much quieter and watching the dolphins just offshore, or exploring nature on the surrounding trails, appeals to a great many people simply looking to get a break away from the hurly burly of normal day to day life.
