Mother’s Day is right around the corner and what better way to show your mother how much she is admired than by spoiling her with a weekend trip to the beach? With the beautiful weather and all of the fun activities this time of year, Panama City Beach is perfect for Mother’s Day! Check out a couple of these hot spots for both locals and visitors:
