Panama City Beach is known for its wild Spring Breaks. It attracts hundreds of college students each year, which transform this town into a party town. March and most of the April month is taken over but these crazy kids. So is Panama City Beach a safe place for regular folks who don’t want to party twenty-four seven? Absolutely!
Panama City Beach is a beautiful place for family vacations. It has gorgeous white sand beaches — lots of entertainment and food options.
It is wise to avoid March and April if you require a quiet beach vacation.
Beaches in Panama City Beach are one of the best in Florida. They have powder like white sand. There is an option of just sunbathing on the beach or explore more wild looking beaches. St. Andrews State Park and Camp Helen State Park give an excellent opportunity to see the more wild side.
Pier Park Drive
Pier Park Drive is in the center of the town. Its retro sign will welcome you to a street full of restaurants, bars, and small boutiques. It even has a Sky Wheel and Dave and Busters. You can spend the whole day wondering there.
Water and amusement parks
Panama City Beach has plenty of amusement options for kids and adults who are young at heart. Shipwreck Island Waterpark, Gulf World and Ripley’s Believe It or Not! are just a few of them. I highly recommend taking a helicopter ride to see Panama City Beach from the air. It is much cheaper than most people think.
There are two excellent pier options in Panama City Beach. The first one is the Russell-Fields Pier, which is next to Pier Park Drive. This pier is full of fishermen! The second one is the M.B. Miller County Pier. It will cost you $3 to enter and $6 if you want to go fishing. You can get your hand stamped if you are planning to come back.
Panama City Beach is an excellent option for a USA beach vacation for crazy college kids, families, couples and solo travelers. It is safe and easy to get to a place. If you are looking for a party place, go to Panama City Beach in March if you are looking for more traditional vacation avoid March!
