Hi I am interested in a Spring Trip for me and my Mom we always have visited Myrtle Beach. And while family lives there and we enjoy it, I have a SSI check coming in April and we both just want to get away from it all but on a budget. Because a fight to Florida will probally be $500 we are hoping to find a nice place for under $1000. I have have heard the water is a lot calmer than Atlantic Ocean waters. I did want to take a cruse and enjoy some carrebean Islands beaches but I have decided Florida's Gulf Side would be better for the budget. I am not just asking about Pensacola but the whole Panhandle. I am possibley thinking of Clearwater to Sarasota area. Is thier any places where the water is the calmest, What is the best time for warm waters and calm waters. A One bedroom is fine but a 2 bedroom or 1 Bedroom with two queens or a pull down bed are ideal. I don't like sleeping on a pull out couch. What are the best areas in the Panhandle for peace and quiet.
