Not a large city, but a beautiful coastal stretch, it is no surprise that the rooftop bars on the Emerald Coast are quite low in alltitude. But the location right next to the ocean means great views over the water, especially around sunset. And you do not need to get to hight to enjoy that. Closeness to the water also means most of the rooftop bars serves great seafood.
Emerald Coast is an unofficial name for the coastal area in northern Florida, stretching from Panama City to Pensacola. Located by the Gulf of Mexico, the stretch is also sometimes referred to as 30A, from the scenic highway following the coast. With small cosy towns and white sand beaches, this is a popular tourist spot.
