  • A beautiful Vacation Spot!!

    "A very nice condo!!! It was clean and comfortable!! The washer/dryer combo was a plus! I didn't have to go home with dirty clothers!! There were 2 full bathrooms which came in handy with 2 pre-teen girls! LOL! The view of the gulf was beautiful! We were in walking distance to so many restaurants and shops! This unit was on the 4th floor and very close to the parking deck and elevators."

  • Family Vacation July 2014

    "I want to start with the room was great, so I am reviewing it and not the overall hotel. As many reviews online of Shores of Panama state, the elevators are a little slow, especially during busy season. The room itself was very good. I wish I could give it 4.5 stars. On the plus side. The unit was very well decorated , nice flooring, granite counters, all of the amenities of home. I travel a lot and cant stand when you cant get a room cool enough to sleep comfortably. Absolutely no problem here the ac was tip top. A bonus that my wife appreciated was a box fan in the unit to add white noise in the room.....fantastic touch. We ate several meals in the unit, and never had a problem with needing any cooking utensils that we didnt have....including corkscrews, can openers and bottle openers...very important. Another plus, the full size appliances...made everything easier. I am knocking off the a star for 3 small reasons. The two main bedrooms need better curtains, you can actually see into the rooms from outside a little and they let in a good bit of light in the morning. The other issue was the 3rd bedroom, it is pretty small, the double bed/bunk combo takes up nearly the entire room, especially with the ladder up....it did have its own bathroom....so that was awesome. Also, the units wifi doesnt seem to pick up (at least on our myriad of electronic devices) in the front room or balcony, you have to be in the back bedrooms to get decent signal....but it did work. The property itself was very nice, the pool area is awesome. The location is great, beach property very nice, and close to several restaurants. The elevators were a pain, but manageable, and never dealt with the front desk staff....one of the benefits of renting VRBO. Would definitely rent this unit again, which is as good of a rating as I can give."

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.
