So, looking for a good place to get away? Yet you don't want to go where everyone else goes. Well, how does camping sound to you? No, I don't mean camping out in the woods. How about camping on the beach?
You are looking at Perdido Key, which is located south of Florida. I went there for Spring Break freshman year of college. That's an über-zoomed in view, as the key is much longer (with buildings). It's run by the National Park Service, interestingly enough. We only stayed a day because it was too windy to keep our tent up (we really didn't know what we were doing). Having said that, this place is paradise. Nobody, and I mean, nobody was in our view (with the exception of an old couple whom we passed on the road in). Look at these photos and decide for yourselves.
If I remember correctly, the cost for a pass is only $6. Therefore, it's extremely reasonable! Also, Perdido Key is literally right across the straight from Panama City, so you can drive there to get anything you might need or want. In short, it's the ideal (in my opinion) and undiscovered vacation spot. So, think about it next time (instead of Cancun, Cabo San Lucas, Fort Lauderdale, etc.).
