  • Beach trip 2014

    "This was our third summer vacation to rent this home. If you do not want all the hassles brought on by the vacation crowds & tourists, then this is the place for you. Located two blocks from the beach, you are still only about ten minutes from Pier Park, all the great restaurants, and only about a 35-40 minute drive to the Silver Sands Outlet stores in Destin. This location is truly a great value!"

  • PCB to love

    "We stayed here for our family spring break vacation in March 2013 and it was perfect. After reading previous reviews I was drawn to the fact this condo was on the west end of PCB which offered the spring break relaxing quiet my husband and I were looking for AND perfect for our teenage sons to find the spring break beach they were looking for. The condo beach is easy pace and inviting, but a very short walk up the beach has The Pier action and attractions for teens without being too wild and crazy. After we bought our groceries (found at the brand new super Walmart right up the road) and took a look at the area, I was comfortable with having my teenage sons walk the beach mile to the shops, restaurants, and activity of the Pier. The unit was comfortably decorated and spacious enough for our group of 7. You are right on the beach, so no road crossing needed to reach white sand memories. The 9th floor was high enough to offer breath taking views without being too high to feel in the clouds. The lobby was very basic, but the staff were very friendly and helpful. We had family, food and fun and we all agreed it was a great vacation and were planning to come back even before we left! The only bummer was the cool weather that moved in when we were there, but mother nature is her own girl, and we made the most of every sunny day. If you are looking for fast paced, teenage flurry, beach bar and complimentary activities, then keep looking. But if you want beachfront luxury close to everything, then you can stop looking with no worries."

Panama City Beach Area Travel Tips

The history of Panama City Beach goes back to the Native Americans who inhabited the land before the arrival of the British. It was also an important location in World War II and some of the cannon platforms can still be found along the shores.

Each spring, college students flock to Panama City Beach for a week of fun in the sun with thousands of their newest friends. Located in the Florida Panhandle, Panama City Beach sits along the Gulf of Mexico and largely depends on its natural surroundings to draw in tourists and keep the local economy going.

Must-see Attractions in Panama City Beach

St. Andrews State Recreation Area: St. Andrews State Recreation Area is one of Florida’s most popular places for outdoor recreation. It was rated the “No. 1 Beach in America” in 1995 and is known for the 1.5 miles of white sandy beaches, natural dunes and clear waters. Here, the beaches are easy to access and many are undeveloped. You’ll want to do it all with activities to explore such as snorkeling, diving, fishing and outdoor water sports.

Beaches: There are 27 miles of sand and surf to choose from in Panama City Beach, all of which include a different experience. If you want seclusion, head to Shell Island where there’s no development or access, except by boat. Visitors will find a quiet beach escape at Camp Helen State Park and it's only a short walk away from the water. Visitors can enjoy games of beach volleyball at Schooner’s Beach behind LaVela and Spinnaker where you can grab a bite to eat and a refreshing beverage without leaving the beach. The city also offers nearly 100 beach access points, so you won’t have to look hard to find a way to the sand. Children will love building sandcastles and the adults will enjoy a day of sunbathing with the occasional dip in the water.

Dive sites: Panama City Beach features 24 dive sites for the adventurous who want to go deep under the water and get a first-hand look at the world beneath the sea. You can choose from sites like 4 Army Tanks, Chippewa, Fountainbleau Boxcars, Grey Ghost, Liberty Ship, Sherman Tug, The Black Bart and USS Strength.

Zoos: If you’re bringing the kids along for the fun, check out Gulf World Marine Park and the ZooWorld Zoological and Botanical Park. These attractions are full of marine animals and typical zoo creatures.

Man in the Sea Museum: Learn more about the old ways of deep sea exploration at the Man in the Sea Museum. There are written records, diagrams and drawings to help show what life was like for those who spent their lives below the surface in search of sea life and underwater habitats.

Shopping and Dining in Panama City Beach

Shopping in Panama City Beach: There’s no shame in taking a break from the beach to enjoy a day of retail therapy. There are boutiques that line the streets of Panama City beach as well as open-air malls near the coastline. If you want an unique souvenir to bring home, stop by speciality shops such as Pieces and Blue Heron Fine Gifts. The city’s speciality shops also feature handmade jewelry as well as antiques, collectibles and traditional beachy treats. Beach House Market is home to more than 20 vendors who sell sea-inspired gifts. Visitors to the city shouldn’t leave without shopping at Pier Park. Although it doesn’t quite fit the description of a mall, Pier Park has more than 1 million feet full of local favorites and big-name stores for you to shop until you drop.

Dining in Panama City Beach: You don’t even need to leave the beach to grab a bite to eat. Some of the best views in the city are at restaurants lining the coast. Many of the eateries offer open-air casual dining while you watch the sun set and fishermen head back in from a day at sea. Many diners go for the chargrilled grouper or the fresh Apalachicola oysters. If you aren’t a fan of seafood, don’t worry because Southern barbecue, steak and pulled pork options are also available.
