When driving along the Emerald Coast in the Florida Panhandle, what are some nice beaches to stop at? Which coastal areas are the prettiest? The most secluded/pristine? We'll be driving from Gulfport to Orlando, and want to stop at a few different places along the coast. We plan on taking US 98 for most of the drive.

There are others, too, but I would definitely recommend the drive from Pensacola Beach to Navarre Beach along J. Earle Bowden Way - the National Seashore road. It's a beautiful drive!

Have a grand adventure!

As AG says....very hard to beat that drive. Very hard. In fact, it can't be beaten. That alone will be the drive and once you stop there and at Juana's and the Pier Bar/Grill on Navarre Beach, go up 87 north to I-10 and be done with it. There is nothing more you need to see and you can then concentrate on getting to Orlando. From there to Orlando is close to 8 hours (depending on how you drive).

Yes, once you get past Navarre on 98, you really don't see that much ocean or beach, except in a few places and the drive is tedious thru all those small towns. (We speak from experience!) A nice side trip though would be to exit I-10 at the exit for Hwy 395 for Seagrove Village. One of our favorite little eating spots is the Seagrove Village Market Cafe. Nothing fancy but well prepared and the folks are friendly. I'd probably classify it in the "quaint, old Florida" category!

After taking the Pensacola Beach to Navarre Beach road, be sure to take Scenic HWY 30A between San Destin and Panama City Beach--much more scenic than HWY 98. You are also closer to the Gulf on 30A than 98.

Be especially careful driving on HWY 98 between Pensacola and Panama City--most dangerous stretch of road in Florida! You will also want to avoid morning "rush hour" around Hurlburt Field 0700-0800 and 1600-1700 on weekdays (around Fort Walton Beach/Mary Esther area).

Oh, yes, I agree! 30A is a great scenic route! In fact Seagrove Village Cafe is located near the corner of 30A and hwy 395! Geez - all this talk is really making me homesick for FL!!!
