If you are looking for a beach in Florida to spend a relaxing vacation, there are hundreds of them. If you want a beach with a sunset view by the gulf where you can enjoy shopping as well, check out Panama Beach. It is gorgeous here and you don't need to book a hotel if it is off season. Hotels are too many to mention and varies in prices. What I have in here has a beach view with WiFi access for only $89. Great deal right?
