Here in Panama City Beach we boast about our 320 days of sunshine annually, but there are days when even the Sunshine State gets a little rain. So what do you do when the weather isn't cooperating? No worries-there are still plenty of fun-filled activities for the entire family indoors.
Gulf World Marine Park: This marine park is a place for the whole family to discover some marine life fun! Gulf Word Marine Park offers interactive programs, live shows, tropical gardens, and even a stingray petting pool. Make a reservation to swim with the dolphins or become a trainer for the day.
Arcade fun: Panama City Beach offers plenty of different types of arcades. Rock'It Lanes is not only full of arcade games, but they also have other activities which include bowling, roller skating and pool. Dave and Busters in Panama City Beach is another great place to eat and play and will keep the entire family entertained for hours. Be sure to check out the Eat, Play, Win Combo! Other fun arcades to explore include Cobra Adventure Park, Fun Land, and Race City.
Movies: This is definitely the go-to activity when the weather isn't the greatest. But there is nothing like getting some buttery popcorn and candy to go along with a blockbuster hit! The Grand Theatre offers IMAX, 3D capabilities and the brand new D-BOX experience.
Indoor Putt-Putt: Blacklight Mini Golf at Race City is a unique putt-putt experience like no other. Enjoy a 9-hole mini golf adventure while avoiding the rain!
Indoor Amusement Parks: If the forecast isn't agreeing with your plans, attractions like WonderWorks and Ripley's Believe it or Not Museum will keep the family out of the rain while still making some incredible fun-filled vacation memories. WonderWorks has over 100 exhibits, and if that doesn't keep you entertained for hours, also offers laser tag and a rope course. Ripley's Believe it or Not! Odditorium offers hundreds of exhibits, 13 differently themed galleries, and you and the family can even experience the 4D Moving Theater.
Museum: Looking for a more traditional museum on this rainy day at the beach? Man in the Sea Museum is devoted to the history of diving. You can expect to find one-of-a kind exhibits and antique diving equipment and learn about the evolution of dive equipment.
Pamper yourself: Everyone needs a little pampering. No matter what kind of services you are looking for, Panama City Beach has many spa choices! Who wouldn't love a spa treatment on a rainy day?
Family Amusements: Emerald Coast Mirror Maze & Laser Craze is home of family friendly fun. There is a maze of mirrors with a light and sound performance as you make your way through the maze. See who racks up the highest score at the laser challenge where your family can have some friendly competition dodging laser beams. Don't forget to check out the Pirate's Quest Laser Tag that arms you with a vest and laser gun as you compete in the 1,800 sq. ft. arena with other players.
Wine Tasting: You're on vacation! If you can't be at the beach why not relax and enjoy wine tasting at Panama City Beach Winery. All wines are made in Florida and award winners.
