Explore and Discover: Panama City, Florida
Good morning, from The Sunshine State! I’ve been exploring all of the amazing cities throughout The Florida Panhandle and I’m highlighting my favorite cities and beaches along Florida’s Emerald Coast!
We started off at Laguna Beach and it was quite lovely. We then went on to explore Panama Beach. Again, lovely. The beaches in Panama are very touristy, but that’s half the fun right? Panama City Beach is filled with amusements and activities. The sand is powdery white, the warm Emerald green waters flow from The Gulf of Mexico and the waves are calm and relaxing.
The Panama City Marina is off the Intercoastal Waterway, in nearby Downtown Panama. There are loads of boats, boats, boats and they are in immaculate condition. The atmosphere with all of the vessels out on the water is very relaxing. Whisk away!
Across the street is the Russell-Fields Pier, and for a few bucks, you can walk across it. Fishermen flock here daily to cast their line into the Gulf waters. There were several food trucks out and about all lined up serving up beachside food and sweet beach treats.
Pier Park is the booming entertainment and shopping hot spot in Panama City Beach. We enjoyed browsing all the local shops and taking the whole experience in. There are many novelty shops, clothing stores, and various restaurants. There are also attractions like the IMAX theater, virtual reality rides, and laser tag.
We had German food for lunch at Hofbrau Beer Gardens. I really loved the Bavarian experience we had at the pub! The live German polka music was the highlight of our outing here. The authenticity of the clothing, decor, and live music were spot on.
Pier Park is a must see when in the area. You undoubtedly will find something fun and entertaining for everyone in your party. Panama City is very popular tourist city offering tons of attractions for all ages. Panama is also a popular place for college kids out on spring break. Panama has a lively boardwalk and beautiful beaches making it the perfect vacation spot for families and friends.
And my bucket list dreams just keep coming true!
