At a cookout recently we were discussing Florida. One of our guests overhead someone say Panama Beach Florida and asked if we meant Central America. It was funny but I see where she was confused as she only heard part of what we were saying. We had meant a location in Florida’s west coast Panhandle. 27 miles of shoreline lie in its seven square miles with half of the waterfront on the Gulf of Mexico. Some claim it as one of “The World’s Most Beautiful Beaches” because of its sugary-white sand. Because every March and April, an estimated 100,000 high school and college students descend on it, it is known as the spring break capitol of the world.

  1. Here’s a related funny – I foget the specific destination.

    A driver was adding a destination into their GPS system and selected the first similar name that appeared. They drove to the destination on the GPS, apparently without thinking very much. They ended up about 800 miles away from their true destination because they selected a similar name listed in the GPS system!
