    Pack your bags for a Pan-tastic holiday in Panama City

    Panama City is many a spring breaker's city break of choice, but this strip on the Florida Panhandle has more than enough attractions to draw crowds of all ages. There are sprawling golf courses, thrilling water parks, and golden beaches with the alluring azure waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Find your home away from home in a Panama City vacation rental, the ideal base for beach bumming, saltwater fishing, and waterpark- and aquarium-hopping. History buffs can take a day trip to Camp Helen State Park, where archaeological sites suggest that it had human residents about 4,000 years ago. Or you can simply go for the swimming, fishing, and beachcombing.

    Panama City excursions—water are you waiting for?

    There are plenty of worthwhile activities for adrenaline junkies and outdoorsy types, so make sure you load up with a big brekkie before leaving your Panama City vacation rental. Watersports like sailing, kiteboarding, and paddle-boarding are popular, as are excursions for snorkeling, scuba diving, and dolphin-watching. The Gulf coast is a famous fishing destination; charter a boat and see if you can find anything interesting on the other end of your fishing line. Back on land, hop on a bike and follow the city's cycling routes—if you're lucky, you might spot some wildlife on the trail.

    Have a splashin' good time in Panama City

    The 20-acre Shipwreck Island Waterpark is overflowing with exhilarating aquatic attractions, such as a wave pool that generates 3-foot waves on the reg, side-by-side slides where you can race with a pal, and a replica of a 17th-century ship, which you'll zipline off before dropping into a lagoon pool. Families with li'l ones can check out Gulf World Marine Park, where the kiddos can pet stingrays, feed turtles, and make friends with fearsome sharks. Then, take the tykes to the Man in the Sea Museum, whose diving-related exhibits will show them what it's like to be a deep-sea voyager.

    Panama City—packed like sardines in the summer

    Just like the rest of Florida, Panama City has a subtropical climate, meaning summers are hot and humid, while winters are short and mild. Summer highs dance around 90 degrees from June to September, with lows in the mid-70s. There's no such thing as personal space in the touristy areas when you visit in March, July, or August, as the massive spring break and summer crowds will have you shoulder-to-shoulder with fellow travelers. Panama City vacation rentals tend to have lower price tags from November to February, although some attractions might be shuttered for the winter. Temps during this season range from 40 to 65 degrees.

    Take a walk on the wild side in Panama City

    Water parks with man-made lazy rivers make for a fun afternoon, but if you want a dose of nature au naturel, head over to St. Andrews State Park for snorkeling, scuba diving, canoeing, and kayaking in a former military reservation. There are fishing piers for avid anglers, while hikers and bird-watchers can take to the nature trails. While you're here, why not make a side trip to Shell Island for some fishing and shelling? If you're going in early to mid-summer, you might spot seabirds and sea turtles nesting on the island.
