Tyndall Air Force Base is located on the Panhandle in Northwest Florida.  It is approx. 19.5 kms east of Panama City on the Gulf of Mexico. The Panama City Beach area is best known for its white sandy beaches, emerald green water and is a popular tourist destination. The 43 km stretch of beautiful beachfront is always open to the public and is a main attraction. The area is home to many beautiful parks that include nature reservesrecreation areas, historic sites and miles of trails for hiking, walking and biking. The beautiful weather also allows for year-round outdoor activities including golfing, boating, kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding and fishing and offers many pools and playgrounds. Living in the Panama City area provides great travel opportunities as well. You will be less than a day’s drive from New Orleans, Atlanta, Tampa, Miami, The Kennedy Space Center and of course, Disney World! So many great areas to explore in the Sunshine State.
