Making the choice to venture to the Sunshine State was easy, but picking a suitable accommodation can be more challenging. You want to be near the beach, but still able to get to the Panama City conservation park for hiking or the Grand Lagoon for bird watching. Never fear, dear traveler, because we have accommodations that will suit all your needs during your vacation in Panama City.
First things first, you need to go to Panama City beach and stretch out on the 27 miles of sand overlooking the Gulf. There are ample places to kayak, fish, or even take a boat out to scuba dive in the cerulean waters. Looking for a patch of sand a little off the beaten path? Then make the beach within St. Andrews State Park the initial stop on your Panama City getaway. There, you’ll be treated to pristine views of white sand and dark green waters. Shallow waters and high visibility make St. Andrews the ideal place in Panama City for snorkeling.
When you need to dry out, head to the Man in the Sea Museum. This quirky and innovative venue showcases exhibits on the history of diving. From vintage scuba suits to old school submarines, you’ll happily spend hours above ground dreaming of life under the sea. For a peek into Panama City’s social side, head to Pier Park, the city’s premier shopping and dining outlet. Located alongside the beach, you’ll find your favorite stores and a plethora of delicious local restaurants.
Taking a Panama City vacation? Visit the Gulf coast during February or March so you can partake in the Mardi Gras and Music Festival.

Enjoy live music, vibrant floats, and tasty food as you take part in this epic event.
