Find Panama City Beach pet-friendly rentals

If you're looking for a pet-friendly vacation rental in Florida but want a bit of a slower pace, Panama City Beach could be the ideal destination. Sometimes it's just too darn hot in central and southern Florida, but Panama City Beach in northern Florida is just perfect. The beach is at the top of the Gulf of Mexico, sheltered from many of the weather issues that can arise during hurricane season in areas like Miami that are on the southern Atlantic side of the state.

Things to do

Attractions near Panama City Beach vacation homes

One thing you can count on if you book a PCB vacation rental: you'll never be bored. Museums in the area will delight any kids in tow, and they're quirky enough to fascinate grown-ups as well. The Man in the Sea Museum takes a close look at the sport of diving, and its interactive exhibits allow you to crank up an air pump, climb into a submersible, and learn how diving bells really work. WonderWorks is half museum, half amusement park, with an obstacle course, a laser-tag maze, and virtual-reality soccer matches.

Activities

What to do near Panama City Beach vacation rentals

The hub of Panama City Beach is the beach itself, miles of white sand that's known for being so soft, it squeaks underfoot. Pair that with the emerald green ocean waters, and well, what more could you ask for? The scene is lively and youthful, especially during spring break and summer. If you don't mind a crowd and love a club scene when the sun goes down, you'll be in heaven. If something quieter is more your style, book a sunset boat tour or take the sailing shuttle to Shell Island, a more peaceful beach destination.

Weather

Climate during your stay in Panama City Beach vacation homes

PCB's subtropical climate means some wet weather during hurricane season, but don't let that cloud the facts—the city boasts 320 days of sunshine each year. Spring break is the most popular time for visitors, especially the college-age variety, so join the party or wait until May if you don't want to share your beach towel. Hot, beach-perfect weather makes summer an ideal time to visit. Just bring an umbrella for rainy days, especially in July and August. If you'd like a deal on a Panama City Beach vacation rental, book in winter and enjoy the quiet.

Natural features

Your new animal friends are furry, scaly, and feathered

You might think PCB is just too busy and bustling to accommodate marine species and wetland wildlife. Fortunately, you're wrong. St. Andrews State Park, on the southeast edge of the city, is 1260 peaceful acres of nature trails, swimming spots, and habitats for foxes, coyotes, seabirds, and alligators. (Don't touch! But do swim freely in the saltwater. ‘Gators stay safely in their freshwater homes.) Head to the northwest corner of the city for another natural locale, Conservation Park. Its 2900 acres offer 24 miles of trails shaded by cypress trees.
