A big reason to go to Florida during the winter is to catch some warm weather. All that winter cold in northern Illinois starts to wear on you come February.
And, it was quite warm and sunny in Panama City Beach these last two weeks (we ended up staying 13 nights). And, other than two days of a whole lot of rain, it was usually nice and sunny. Usually a bit cool in the early morning, but getting into the upper 60s to mid 70s by afternoon.
Sadly, however, it was also pretty warm back home in Illinois, with temps in the 50s-60s range much of the time. Hey, could have stayed home for that. But, we did have this little old thing called a beach and the Gulf of Mexico about 200 feet from the front door of our cabana room.
