If you're from Alabama, you probably grew up going to the beach. I'm from Minnesota, so don't get me wrong...lakes are awesome...but they also have catfish. Mean, gross, slimy catfish. For the past 8 years, we've taken the kids to either Gulf Shores or Panama City/Destin FL each year. We loaded up and went to the amazing Holiday Inn Resort in Panama City Beach, our personal fav! They just installed a huge lazy river and it lived up to the hype! Perfect weather for me to get burnt to...plan your beach trip now!
