This is the Ultimate Guide to Panama City Beach
Description

Ah, Florida. We love a state that’s sunny 230 days a year, on average. And Panama City Beach, nestled along the stunning Gulf Coast, beckons travelers with its pristine white sand beaches, emerald waters, and an abundance of activities for all ages. Traveling from a big city like Atlanta? It’s about a five-hour drive, making this an easy road trip destination when visiting with a group of family or friends. If you’re coming in from Alabama, the drive is only a couple hours long. Perfect for a weekend getaway. Whether you're seeking relaxation on the shore, adventures on the water, or to immerse yourself in local culture and cuisine, the “Emerald Coast” is a great place to unwind and recharge. Planning to visit this coastal paradise soon? Let us fill you in on all the unforgettable experiences that await.

Description

There is so much to do and see in this small, relaxed beach town and you probably already guessed it, but most activities revolve around the great outdoors. If you like fishing, swimming, and watersports, this getaway will be nothing short of magical. Rent a jet ski to explore the coast at your own pace or sign up for parasailing. Go surfing, kayaking, or snorkeling at St. Andrews State Park, where the water is clear and shallow. The white sand is a mile long so there are endless opportunities for swimming and sunbathing, too.

 

Take a guided eco-tour of Shell Island to discover the area's diverse wildlife and natural beauty or visit Gulf World Marine Park to learn about marine life through interactive exhibits and shows. For a little culture, explore historic downtown Panama City Beach, which is filled with local art galleries you can pop in and out of at your leisure.

 

Shopping & Nightlife
With over 120 stores, Pier Park is the perfect outdoor stop for shopping and entertainment. Here you’ll find a movie theater, restaurants, shops, live music, and more. You could easily spend half a day perusing gifts, home goods, clothing and jewelry for sale, or dance the night away to live music at Pier Park’s famous beachfront paradise, Harpoon Harry’s.

 

The evening is young, so if you’re a night owl, you’ll probably love immersing yourself in a live music performance at one of the beachfront bars, or getting cozy at a beach bonfire with friends.

 

Wildlife Watch
If you love animals, especially marine species, you’re in for a treat here. Keep an eye out for our favorite flippered mammals! Panama City Beach is home to one of the highest concentrations of wild bottlenose dolphins in the world, and they reside along this beach all year long, indicative of the incredible water quality of the area. You’ll likely see them off the coast of Shell Island or you may want to book a dolphin cruise as the sun is setting to witness these beauties splashing around their natural habitat.

Fancy a meal that’s a little more dressed up? At Bella Roma Tuscan Grill you’ll experience authentic Southern Italian flavors by a chef who grew up on the Amalfi Coast. Family recipes and fresh ingredients make everything on this menu worthwhile. The restaurant even hosts ticketed wine dinners and other special events so you’ll want to check out their calendar if planning to dine here.

Navigating Panama City Beach is a breeze with a few transportation options at your disposal. While having a car offers convenience and flexibility to explore the area at your own pace, biking and walking are popular alternatives, especially for shorter distances. With bike lanes and pedestrian-friendly pathways scattered throughout town, getting around on foot or via two wheels allows you to slow down and soak in the coastal charm of Panama City Beach while staying eco-friendly and active. Whether you choose to cruise in your own vehicle, pedal along scenic routes, or go for a stroll through the streets on foot, getting around town is easy and enjoyable by the beach.

Pack for the Beach
Pack light and smart for your trip to Panama City Beach, where sunny days and warm temperatures are the norm. Bring plenty of lightweight, breathable clothing like shorts, tank tops, and sundresses. Don't forget your swimsuit, sunscreen, and sunglasses for beach days, and a light jacket for cooler evenings. Comfortable walking shoes are a must for exploring the area's attractions. Remember to pack a hat and reusable water bottle to stay cool and hydrated under the hot Florida sun.

 

Explore More
Venture beyond PCB to nearby beach towns and explore all the Panhandle has to offer. Seaside, Rosemary Beach, and Alys Beach, which run along the well-known highway 30A, are all just 30 minutes from PCB by car and each has its own look and feel, straight out of a motion picture. You might immediately recognize Seaside if you’re a film buff. The Truman Show, a classic ‘90s movie, was filmed in and takes place there. A visit to Alys Beach will have you thinking you were transported to the Caribbean or even the Mediterranean with its all-white Bermudan architecture. And Rosemary Beach, named one of “America's Most Romantic Small Towns” by CNN, is charming, upscale, and has some great picks for upscale dining.
