One caveat: As to Saint Andrews State Recreation Area in Panama City Beach, following is posted at http://www.floridapets.net/panamacity.html: "One of our readers visited this park and said while it's a beautiful park and there is a place to walk dogs, there seems to be a general pet-UNfriendly attitude in this part of Florida.
"She said she was walking her leashed dog in a regular park and had a poop bag on hand when a very angry man approached and threatened to call police if she did not leave. She was told by a staff member of the Chamber of Commerce there are no places in the area for people to exercise their dogs."
