The last time we visited the beautiful florida panhandle we flew non-stop from Newark. We have been wanting to return for years but refuse to have a 2.5 hr trip turn into something from 5-9 hrs. Convenience and short flight time is the main reason we vacation in the state multiple times a year. It blows my mind that we cannot find a non-stop with a drive of non much longer than an hour to the area. Am I missing something?
