Comments: Near Eglin AFB East Gate between Pensacola and Panama City.  Beachfront roads are nice and straight and flat for people who would rather not make their motorcycles turn.  For peg scrapers, it's only a six hour ride to the twisties of north Georgia and the Deal's Gap dragon.  Pitch your tent in the backyard or sleep in the shack on the dock.  Knee-walking distance to a great pub.
