Recent Panama City Beach Area reviews

  • Relaxing atmosphere and spectacular view

    "Thank you, Laura. Alex and I had a great time at your condo. I really appreciated the flexibility of cooking in the kitchen or walking a short distance to a nice restaurant after a long day sight seeing. The view was better than my trip to Cozumel and the beach is so clean and comfortable to walk or lay on. I will be back next winter when the ice and snow in the Midwest drives me south."

  • Perfection! Lovely condo!

    "The condo & accommodations were perfect! Mike was gracious and courteous & even gave us a call upon check-in to make sure that everything was okay. Enjoyed the breathtaking views of the Gulf and the large patio was spectacular to sip morning coffee from while watching the dolphins. Everything was great, very clean, and inviting. I couldn't have been more pleased & hope to stay there again during our next visit to the area. Thanks ever so much, Mike. Everything was fabulous!"

  • Nice Time - in Spite of the weather

    "Weather was really cold, which meant the heated pool really was heated - based on the kids we saw having a great time. Great ocean view and sunshine is all you really need. Anything else is a bonus. We booked a last minute deal and working with VRBO property manager was a very positive experience. Very responsive and pleasant. This is a huge complex in a convenient location. Covered parking is big plus in hot sun or on rainy days. I would guess that my 4 rating would be a 5 for some reviewers."

  • awesome room!

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Marcy's condo. We were able to bring our little chi, bullet with us also which was a plus! We usually stay on front beach road but we liked staying here it was more secluded and quiet. Marcy worked with us and allowed us to bring the dog. We look forward to staying next year as well! Thank you for a great and wonderful experience!"

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.
