Recent Panama City Beach Area reviews

  • Exceeded my expectations

    "Recent stayed there about 2 weeks ago. The condo was beautiful. We vacationed with friends of ours and their little girl. There was a total of 6 of us and had more than enough room. Doesn't include beach service but Ms. Barbara has some beach chairs in the condo that we were able to use and we actually preferred that than the beach service. This way we could get closer to the water for our little ones to play. I was concerned with being on the 16th floor with two rambunctious 4 year olds but it really wasn't bad at all. The railings on the balcony are a good height. The resort is beautiful as well. Our only complaint would be how cold the pools and waterpark area was. The water in them was freezing!! Ms. Barbara was wonderful to rent from and very friendly when I called to ask her some questions. We would DEFINITELY rent this condo again. We enjoyed our stay and were sad when our vacation came to an end. Can't wait until our next beach getaway!!"

  • Best Vacation Home

    "This was our second time here at this vacation home. First time was a few years back just my husband an I. This time around we stayed here with our 3 children. It was a great time staying here as a family. The pool was nice to cool off in after a long hot day. Here is a few things we did as a family. Swimming with the dolphins while on a tour, Ripley's believe it or not, Pier park, Jet ski's and Wonder works. The only thing we were unable to do on our list was Parasailing. Because we waited to late and the weather was bad. So next trip up that's first on our list. So if you planning a family trip soon you and your family have to try this vacation home out and also if you looking for things to do try a few things that we did on our stay there."

  • Perfect!

    "We have been going to PCB for more than 30 years. This condo has the perfect view! Ms Jeanne is great! We will always come back here. There were ten of us 11 to 59 years of age. We all had something to do. There is absolutely no reason to leave. Close to everything."

  • Great owner, great stay

    "This is a very comfortable condo. We definitely enjoyed our stay here. It's nice to deal with the owner directly versus a management company. He cares for his condo and the guests who stay there. If you have a question, you can be sure to get an answer. It's was a nice bonus to have a door on the bunkroom- the teenagers liked sleeping in and not getting bothered by the toddlers early in the morning."

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.
