This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Visit Panama City Beach. All opinions are 100% mine.
While we have explored so much of Florida’s 1,350 miles of beaches, the only time we’ve spent visiting Panama City Beach was in October 2018 after its recent hurricane devastation carrying supplies from the Southeast of Florida and distributing batteries, diapers, and more to the church community of this beautiful beachside town.
Good News, PCB is Back in Business!
The awesome news is they’re back in business and waiting to welcome you home to 27 miles of the best sugar-white sand in the Sunshine State! Accommodations, dining experiences and of course the gorgeous turquoise waters await. Here’s my family bucket list for the next time we drive to the panhandle and visit Panama City Beach, exploring all the Real. FUN. Beach. has to offer.
Surely, Panama City Beach is a fun destination for the whole family. A perfect road trip for a family like ours from South Florida, or anyone visiting from the Southeastern US, PCB has just what you are looking for in a full, family vacation experience. From family beach to thrills both on and off the beach, to ecotourism and awesome date night spots, PCB appeals to every type of traveler. Or maybe, maybe you’re like me and you don’t even want to choose, because you like a little bit of everything! By mixing and matching activities and attractions, you can customize a vacation to visit the Real. FUN. Beach. that’s as unique as you are.
Make It Yours
Not only is there something for everyone in your family to enjoy, you can have a wide range of experiences in just a single vacation destination. Sure, you can lounge on their sugar white sand, gazing out on turquoise waters for a week. But, if you want to get adventurous and snorkel, ride airboats, or hike, you can absolutely do that, too. How about just some relaxing at the spa, hitting the links or some fantastic shopping time while the kids visit the resort children’s program? Yep. PCB is a perfect destination for a little of everything.

For our family? I think I’ll spend some time lounging under an umbrella, reading on the sand while the cool gulf breeze and turquoise waters capture my imagination. The boys can build castles and fly their stunt kites. We’ll all drop in a line and do some fishing, maybe see some dolphin while we’re kayaking. Undoubtedly, mom and dad will leave the boys with a movie and room service in the luxury resort while we catch a sunset by the pier and date night at some of PCB’s award-winning restaurants.
And, no trip for Team Reyneri is complete without some serious beach frisbee at a state park (they have two) and some big-time adrenaline thrills. Panama City Beach can easily accommodate the need for speed, spins, drops, and dives. They’ve got everything from go-carts to roller coasters, a Treetop Drop and zip lines, plus mountain bike trails and all sorts of water adventures.
Real. FUN. Purposeful. Events.
Every year PCB hosts exciting, annual events to make your family travels even more special. There’s sure to be an event that’s a fit for everyone in your family! Here are some of the upcoming events in Panama City Beach for the spring of 2019. We’re foodies and wine lovers who make giving back a priority, so our family has our eyes set on the charity UNwineD event in March. Which one captures your attention and looks the most fun for your family to make it yours?
This year UNwineD will include a charitable aspect for first responders and all those instrumental at the EOC (emergency operations center) and will also be benefiting/working with World Trade Kitchen
UNwineD is an award-winning event for PCB presented by Southern Living
• Taste craft beer, spirits and wine from around the world
