A vacation is a perfect excuse to come together as a family. After all, a family vacation typically results in lifelong memories you’ll be talking about at the dinner table for years to come. It all starts with a reservation at a family beach resort, which offers diverse accommodations, family-friendly activities on land and water, and delicious cuisine straight from the Gulf.  Your dream family resort is waiting for you on the shores of Panama City Beach. 

Accommodations for Everyone

Choose between a small or large room, studio, condo, villa, townhouse, or suite, depending on how large your group is. Many resorts offer adjoining rooms for children. Plan to spend a week or longer here? Pick an accommodation with a full-service kitchen or kitchenette. And if you’d like to enjoy the stunning Gulf views from your room, opt for the balcony option.  

Many PCB resorts are pet-friendly, so bring your favorite furry family member along. No one gets left behind on vacation.

Family Fun

At a PCB resort, everything you need for a perfect vacation is all in one place. And while the Gulf offers a boatload of water activities, area resorts on or near the shore provide a whole other world of water fun. Enjoy sun-soaked days on-property at the resort pool, hot tub, lazy river, or waterpark. And when you want to hit the beach, walk or run to the shore and spend quality time with family on the plush sand and in the calm Gulf waters. Often, area hotels offer private beach access points to their guests. For more family fun, check out our three-day itinerary

Other fun resort amenities include full-service spas, top-tier golf and mini-golf courses, kid's activities, arcade rooms, live music entertainment, and sports and recreation courts for pickleball, tennis, and more.

If you’d like to cruise our waters during your stay, some resorts offer boat slip rentals and if you plan on playing on the beach, choose a resort offering beach equipment, from umbrellas to chairs. 

Delicious Restaurants

Keeping everyone fed can be time-consuming, but resorts make it easy, often offering a selection of on-site restaurants featuring kid’s menus.

Poolside eats are also commonplace, as are open-air restaurants, perfect for sunset views. On-site ice cream and frozen yogurt shops make a delightful treat on a hot day, and so do tiki bars for adults. Another option is room service if you don't feel like venturing outside your room after a memorable day.

If you plan on stepping out from time to time, try a local restaurant. Area resorts are near some of the best beachfront and seafood restaurants.

Your dream Panama City Beach family vacation starts with the resort of your dreams. Wherever you choose to stay, know that sun-soaked days and memorable moments await.
