If you want to fully immerse yourself in the “Life’s a Beach” lifestyle of the sugar white sands and turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico, consider a vacation rental instead of a hotel. Imagine luxuriating in a spacious home, cottage or condo with your entire family at the same price (or less) than you would pay for two or more hotel rooms. Panama City Beach’s vacation rental menu includes sprawling beach homes, quaint cottages, sophisticated villas and town homes, and elegant condos.
Panama City Beach is known for its family-friendly attractions like Ripley’s Believe it or Not! Museum, Shipwreck Island Waterpark, and ZooWorld Zoological and Botanical Park. Other family favorites include boat rentals at Shell Island, motor scooter rentals and dolphin cruises. The unofficial epicenter of shopping, dining and entertainment on Panama City Beach is Pier Park, a million-square-foot, open-air complex with national chain stores, boutiques, a movie theater and restaurants like Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville and the Hobrau Beer Garden. For golfers, the course line-up is enticing with the Nicklaus and Meadows courses at Bay Point Resort, Greg Norman’s Shark’s Tooth and the Hombre Golf Club leading the way. Deep sea fisherman love the area, too, because the remarkably deep waters off the coast of Panama City Beach put you as close to the action as you can get. Do you want to take a dive? The snorkel and scuba set relish the multitude of natural, historical and artificial reefs in the sparkling, gin-clear waters. A vacation rental in Panama City Beach makes it easy to explore the attractions and embrace the laid-back lifestyle.
There are so many marvelous beach venues for family vacations in the Panama City Beach area that it’s difficult to narrow them down. On the west end you’ll find a wealth of economical family-oriented vacation homes in Laguna Beach and Sunnyside Beach. Farther west on U.S. Highway 30A, you’ll discover charming, family-friendly “New Urban” designed coastal villages like Rosemary Beach and Watersound, which are dominated by parks, plazas, promenades, dune walkovers and pavilions.
