I always got the impression Destin had a older demographic than Panama City Beach. What I want to know is why its two freaking hours to go six blocks in the afternoons in Destin? Where is the traffic coming from and going too?
US 98 is the only route in or out. Therefore when everyone wants to go shopping, to the beach, leave or enter town, then they are on that road. When I was younger, it was relatively quiet. Now that they built all those tall Condos, the summer is hell.
I love how they rebranded VPS ( Which is in Valparaiso/Eglin across the bay ) as the Destin FWB airport. Okaloosa County Regional is still a better name for it .
