    Emerald Coast (Florida Panhandle)

    I was wondering which timeshares in the NW Florida area are good, like between Panama City and Penaacola. I know of (but never stayed at) the Wyndham one, but just wondering if there is one better. I am planning a vacation later this year, like Fall or Winter. TS
