Pet-Friendly Accommodations in Panama City Beach

As the idea of "family" comes more and more to include pets, families on vacation can face challenges bringing their four-legged family members along for the ride. But Panama City Beach, known for its sugar white sands and crystal clear emerald waters, is also home to one of the few pet-friendly beaches in the state of Florida, and has many different pet-friendly lodging and activity options available for visitors.

A pet-friendly beach is located directly across from Pier Park, an outdoor mall and lifestyle center, and just west of the City Pier. Stretching 400 feet, the beach is open to dogs on leashes, allowing the entire family to soak in the sun and feel the sand between their toes (or paws).

Panama City Beach also offers a variety of pet-friendly hotels, condominiums, campgrounds, or beach houses. Additionally, a city ordinance allows restaurant owners the option of allowing pets in outdoor seating areas that can be accessed without entering the restaurant itself. With a wealth of al fresco dining options available, many Panama City Beach restaurants offer this option.
