With the summer season winding down here in the Florida pan handle people are looking for things to do while the weather and water is still warm. There are three great options for you to choose from while visiting Panama City Beach.
The first thing to do is visit the peaceful and beautiful Saint Andrews State Park. There are so many options within the park to enjoy. Maybe you want to take a short shuttle hop to Shell Island? The Shell Island Shuttle is conveniently located within the park and is the official shuttle service to Shell Island. While on Shell Island you can wander the sugar white beaches and look for shells that are scattered along the shore. If that is not your speed the Shell Island Shuttle company also has bikes and paddle boards that you can use on the mainland area. If you would like to be your own captain, the Shell Island Pontoon company is also there to outfit you with your own fantastic seagoing vessel. Anyone of these options are great way to see the park.
Another fun thing to do is visit historic downtown Panama City. Panama City’s downtown has gone through a dramatic revitalization in the last 10-years which brought fantastic improvements to the area. You will find cute clothing boutiques, eclectic antique stores as well as great dining options. Visitors can really make it a great evening just by exploring and wandering through historic downtown Panama City.
You can always find fun and interesting festivals being scheduled in Panama City. An example of this is the upcoming Oktoberfest in downtown Panama City on October 20th. Maybe German food and drink is not for you, don’t worry about it because the One Harrison Food and Wine Festival is right around the corner on November 2nd and 3rd. Maybe you will be in town for the 6th Annual Taste of Downtown which will feature many of the restaurants and food options of the area. It is great to get a little sample of each eatery in the Panama City Beach area.
Anyone of these things would easily make your time and stay in Panama City Beach that much more enjoyable and definitely keep the family entertained throughout the year. Be sure to call ahead and make your plans for your next Panama City Beach adventure!
