Welcome to Panama City Beach, Florida
Located on Florida’s northwest panhandle, Panama Beach City’s initial appeal may be 27 miles of white-sand beaches curving around the edge of the calm, turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico, but it has much more to offer!
Founded during the Revolutionary War, it's an historic waterfront town, charming visitors with strolls through areas like St. Andrews with its Saturday market and collection of vintage publishing machines. At the same time, it offers modern family vacation fun. Amusement parks and 125 shops and restaurants invite visitors to forget their cares at Pier Park, which also features the SkyWheel ferris wheel with views out to the beach.
And for those seeking a nature retreat the area delivers in all directions. It is bookended by two State Parks, St. Andrews and Camp Helen, both offering hiking and fishing, while just at its center is the 2900 acres of Conservation Park with boardwalks and trails under cypress canopies. And of course, that 27 miles of ocean inviting scuba divers, swimmers, and sun worshippers.
This destination is great for every type of visitor from families who want to learn and play together at places like Gulf World and ZooWorld to couples seeking a retreat in a beachside resort where they can indulge on poolside sunbathing, seafood and spectacular sunsets.
