That will make a great vacation! The best route from Montgomery to Panama City Beach will take you 3 hours and 22 minutes spanning 183 miles. That being said, all three routes between the two cities differ by only three minutes and six miles, so choosing one over the other won’t make a huge difference in the end.
  • The faster route will take you through the Alabama towns of Troy, Elba, Samson, and Ponce De Leon in Florida before arriving in PCB.
  • The longer route is just three minutes longer and will take you through Highland Home, Luverne, Brantley, and Kingston in Alabama, then Defuniak Springs and Freeport in Florida.
  • The middle route is a combination of both of the other routes, taking three hours and 24 minutes.
If you want to avoid putting extra miles on your car—or you just want to keep that white Florida sand and saltwater smell out of your upholstery—you might want to consider renting a car for your vacation. In this case, you’ll also want to make sure rental coverage is included in your insurance plan.
