Confederate Flags, Mullet Haircuts, Strip Clubs
Following local advice I followed Interstate 10 west and entered Panama City via Highway 231 South. A very friendly sandwich-maker at a Subway off of the Tallahassee exit told me that to take Highway 98 along the coast during spring break would take forever and so I followed her advice. She said that normally highway 98 along the gulf coast is a great scenic drive but at this time of the year with 200,000 spring breakers it means a lot of sitting in idle traffic. Panama City I found to be a typical small town with the usual waffle houses and small restaurants and chain restaurants except the only difference is that there are topless clubs.
