Destination guide

Fun in Panama City Beach vacation home rentals

Set on the Gulf of Mexico and backed by beautiful bays and languid lagoons, Panama City Beach (nicknamed PCB) is the quintessential Gulf Coast destination. Known as a spring break party town and a haven for heat-seeking retirees, the city is a healthy mix of family fun, vibrant nightlife, beautiful beaches, and nearby nature parks. In short, it has everything. Choose a Panama City Beach vacation rental to suit your needs—near the club scene or off the beaten path—and bask in the sun and the glory of your good decision.

Things to do

PCB's hands-on museums let you dive right in

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.


The ideal spot for sunbathing and a perfect place to party

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.


Warm, jam-packed springs and hot, sultry summers

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.
