So my cousin from NY booked a room in Panama city for spring break, and it coincidentally coincides with my own spring break, so I'm figuring it'll be a good opportunity for a road trip. The GF and I need to get out of the Urban setting for a while, stretch our legs. Plus, I've been meaning to check out Tali and the North Florida region anyway and this makes for a good excuse.
I see on google maps a big green patch called the Apalachicola forest. Worth driving through? Any fun, unpaved sections? It would be cool if I could traverse from one side to the other on the way to panama city.
Also, anything worth seeing in the ocala to panama city region worth getting off the highway for? I don't mind the county roads.
I'm hoping to meet a friend on the way down to wheel at either citrus or ocala on the return leg of the trip.
