I grew up spending my summers here...I just love the white sugar sand beaches. In the winter they are pretty empty for you to enjoy...they also now have an area near the pier that you can take your dog on....how cool is that?

The beach is beautiful but the town needs some help still.. there is no public showers in the area to wipe or wash off the sand.. it is a fun vibrant location even in off season.

Love Panama City Beach! Morning & evening walks are great. Every walk is different. There is a lot of sea creatures that are swimming close. The beach seemed clean & was constantly monitored.

Panama City has cracked down on the college crowd that likes to come during spring break, drink too much, and terrorize the beaches and trash the city. Because arrests have been made and the word has gotten around, there are... More

Rosemary Beach is very close, and it's a pristine, unspoiled beach that is a perfect place for family photos especially at sunset. Pier Park is another good location for a photo shoot because there are rides, shops, and... More
