Winter Residents

Winter visitors looking for great weather and a lot of FUN make their home in Panama City Beach when temperatures farther north make dreams of the beach dance in their heads! Sometimes called "snowbirds," guests travel from all over to make their winter "nests" by the white sands of Panama City Beach, where social events, educational classes, arts & crafts, and parties keep everyone focused on fun in the sun. And don't forget about the special deals and discounts!

Friendly staff at Visit Panama City Beach are here to help you find events, attractions and deals during your stay in Panama City Beach. There are so many things to do in Panama City Beach that you'll forget all about the cold weather back home!

Here are just a few:
