The Big Easy & Florida's Panhandle

Frenchy’s Rockaway Grill - Clearwater Beach, Florida

Self-drive Holidays

This fabulous fortnight takes you from the jazz bars of New Orleans all the way along the coast to the white sand beaches of Florida’s Panhandle. Starting in the Big Easy really gets you into the swing of things before you pick up your rental car and head to Biloxi. After discovering the roots of Mardi Gras you’ll continue to skirt the Gulf of Mexico as you stop off at small seaside towns in between Mobile and Pensacola. By now you’ll be into the Sunshine State of Florida with the snow white sands of Panama City and St. Pete Beach providing ample excuses to kick back, relax and soak up the sunsets. Coupled with the nature reserves of Crystal River and big city sightseeing in Tallahassee and Tampa, this has got all the makings of an epic road trip. Short driving distances let you appreciate life on the road as well as allowing for plenty of freedom, flexibility and impromptu adventures along the way.
