Panama City Beach is a fun weekend trip or a week long vacation.  Southwest airlines now flies into Panama City Beach!  This awesome area is more accessible than ever!  Here is a list of a few things to do while you are there.

Family Friendly Activities:
Bay County Library – 1 hour story and craft time- Thursdays, June -July at the area’s brand new library

Kaleidoscope Theatre – Take in a play while you are in town

Regency Stadium 11– $1 movies Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 10:00am

The Grand Theatre– Pier Park- Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 10AM $3.00 kid movies include kid size popcorn/soda

St. Andrews State Park– This park has a great “kiddie pool” area where the rocks block the waves from coming into a large area , nice campground, and Shell Island shuttle.  I also hear this is good fishing if you climb over to the other side of the rocks.

Zoo World – This may not look like much from the road, but they have lots of animals.  They even have lions!

Within driving distance:
Baytown Wharf – fabulous area to hang out with the whole family

Florida Caverns State Park– located near Marianna, FL

Army Recreation Area – Destin area beach cottages for rent for military with id.

Wild Adventures Amusement and Water Park Valdosta, GA

Callaway Gardens– Callaway Gardens, GA- Sky High Hot Air Balloon Festival- September
