Tuesday, January 25 is National Plan for Vacation Day, so why not plan your vacation to the Real. Fun. Beach? No matter what time of year you want to come to Panama City Beach, there are still tons of fun activities to do, restaurants to visit and places to stay. Here's a quick guide on how to plan your trip to Panama City Beach.

Places to Stay

We have thousands of places to stay from resorts to beach homes. You can come alone or with a group, you're sure to find a place that fits all of your needs! If you're coming with kids, places like Holiday Inn or Splash Resort are perfect because they're known for having interactive water parks for children, along with pools and hot tubs. If you're coming alone and want a quiet resort, the Sheraton PCB Golf & Spa Resort is a great option, with multiple dining options along with a gym and spa.  

Grab a Bite

Panama City Beach is known for our fresh seafood, and we have plenty of options for delicious seafood restaurants that are sure to leave you wanting more. Runaway Island and Barefoot on the Beach Bar & Grill are both great options for lunch or dinner. They're both kid-friendly and overlook the Gulf so you can go after spending some time on the beach or just to grab some sun while enjoying your meal. Grand Marlin and Firefly are both more upscale and romantic for those coming for a quick getaway with your significant other. If you're not in the mood for seafood, places like Christo's or Diego's Burrito Factory provide different options. 

Outdoor Activities

No matter when you're here in Panama City Beach, you can always enjoy our 27 miles of white sand beach. This time of year is perfect for a walk on the beach while taking in the sugar-white sand and turquoise waters. As it begins to warm up, there's nothing better than laying on the beach and soaking up the sunshine and sounds of the beach. We also have fun activities for kids like putt-putt at Goofy Golf or go-carts at Cobra Adventure Park. If you're looking for something indoors, WonderWorks and Ripley's Believe It or Not! are both tons of fun for the family. For more outdoor activities, Camp Helen State Park and the Conservation Park are both great places to experience the outdoors and see some of the greenery you wouldn't usually see in Panama City Beach. You can even rent a bike and ride down Gayle's Trail, which is connected to the Conservation Park, for another unique experience.
