Driving to Panama Beach

Hi!

I will also be driving. We leave from Tampa the last week of November. We will be staying a few nights and are from Canada. What nice route to take and any good stops to visit on our way from Tampa. I know the drive is like six hours. Thanks

You might want a stop at Lake Ridge Winery as its right along I-75 in Clermont. There are a number of antique shops along the way just north of there. Harrys in downtown Ocala is a good stop for lunch, Silver Springs is nearby if you want a short glass bottom boat ride. Decide if you want a slower scenic route by taking Hwy 19 or stick to I-75 and I-10. You can also take Hwy 27 as your route. Look at google maps or map quest.
