Offering a space that is both compact and welcoming, this 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom condo overlooking the Gulf is the perfect space for small families or small groups of friends who are just looking to let go of the stresses of their real life. Up to 6 people can sleep comfortably in this Gulf front jewel, so start making plans now; our guide to its charms will convince you that no other place will do!

 

Uniquely Panama City Beach

 

As the door swings open, revealing a space that is comfortable and awe inspiring, the first place your eyes will land is on the wall of windows that takes up the entire back wall of the condo. Unlike most beachfront properties, the balcony is tucked away at the side, still offering views of the Gulf while not distracting you from the views available through the wall of windows! Walls painted a sea blue blend with the blue of the Gulf, while the white side tables mimic the white sands below, and in case the sight outside those windows aren’t reminder enough, beach themed art work adorns the walls above the soft blue sofa and chair that add comfort to the space. The sofa is also a queen sleeper model, allowing more guests to stay comfortably!

 

A white wood dining table invites you to play your favorite board games in the dining space between the living area and the kitchen but can also be used for Zoom meetings, (free Wi-Fi makes it easy!) puzzle building, and of course, enjoying a tasty seafood dinner. The kitchen is a modern space containing high-end appliances in stainless steel, custom cabinets painted the color of the beach, and cool granite countertops that may entice you to bake a batch of homemade cookies. The bedroom of #2918 is cool and comfortable, and the owners have utilized every inch of the space by tucking a set of bunkbeds away in a hallway niche. Their bright blue and white striped linens adds a touch of cheer to the space, and we can promise your children will fight to be able to sleep in these beds!

 

Of Course, There’s More!

 

Renting this sweet condo for your beachfront getaway would be enough for most people but knowing that you also get access to all community amenities, including pools, hot tubs, and a fitness center, and movie theater makes it a no brainer! Reserve our Tidewater Beach Resort vacation escape today.

Winter and spring are peak seasons in Panama City Beach, and it’s no surprise as to why. Though the area is absolutely gorgeous during the entire year, these two seasons really get the best of it all. Wonderfully cool, but without any of the winter chill you expect from most parts of the world, and warm enough to make beach visits enjoyable without having to put up with the intense summer humidity. Though there’s mile after mile of beach for everyone to enjoy, there’s still a ton of other things to do while you’re in town, and you won’t want to miss out on the fun.

Winter Visitors

Though not quite as busy as spring, you’ll find that winter heralds the start of the visitor season in Panama City Beach. If you’re looking for a winter getaway that gets you out of the snow for a while, then this is the perfect place for you to visit. You might still want to pack an extra layer of clothing just in case there are some unexpectedly cold days in store for you. In general, though, you’ll still be able to dress for the beach, and on plenty of winter days you’ll still see people going for a swim at the beach, given that the average daytime high temperature for the season tends to float around 65 degrees.

Winter Activities

Just in case some of those days get a bit too cold for you to really make the most out of your enjoyment outdoors, there are a bunch of indoor activities that you’ll love doing. This is especially true for when it really cools down at night, and that coastal breeze brings a chill to the air. Here are some recommendations for places you might enjoy visiting.

Ripley’s Attractions at Panama City Beach

Ripley’s has a variety of different attractions in the area, and they’re all kid friendly, making this a great choice for activity when you’re taking a family trip. The classic Ripley’s Believe it or Not attraction is one of the mainstays, offering dozens of different unique art displays and interactive displays as well. They also have their “7D” Moving Theater, with motion seats and immersive digital effects. The Mirror Maze and Laser Race are great obstacle courses for anyone looking to challenge themselves, too.

Experience the Night Life in Downtown

This might seem like it goes without saying but seeing the sights around downtown is a great thing to do on days and nights where the weather isn’t cooperating for your planned time on the beach. Since the area is constantly growing with the years as a sought-after vacation destination, new businesses are always flocking to the area, and that extra bit of competition has really brought some great restaurants into town.

Panama City at Night

It’s not just the restaurants, either. Downtown Panama City Beach is always alive with a thriving arts and music community, making it easy to find entertainment. As the area continues to expand, new and interesting shops keep being added, and you could easily fill up days of your vacation experiencing new things here. You could easily go to a different restaurant for every meal and not have to revisit one unless you’re staying in town for an extended stay.

If you’re travelling without the kids, the night life is its own reason to visit. Lively and unique bars are always holding events, whether it’s karaoke, live music, or something completely different, and some organizations even hold bar crawls that bring you to some of the best places around the city.

Wonderworks Amusement Park

With more than 35,000 square feet of “edu-tainment,” Wonderworks Amusement Park is another great family friendly attraction that’s built to look as though it’s inverted, with the floor above you and the ceiling below you. Kids will especially enjoy all of the interactive exhibits and other attractions like laser tag, making this a great spot to spend an afternoon.

Spring Visitors

Spring is, without a doubt, the busiest time of year in Panama City Beach. People travel from all over the country to come see the scenic white sand beaches while the weather is just right, and the parties are in full swing when the college students come through for Spring Break. If you want to see the city at its liveliest, this is definitely the time for you to come check it out.

No need to worry about packing extra layers of clothing for this time of year, either. Once the Winter has passed, the cold is completely gone, and those spring days are ideal for bike rides and walks on the beach.

Shipwreck Island Water Park

Though it isn’t open for the entirety of spring, Shipwreck Island Water Park is definitely a great stop, especially if you’ve brought the family along. They’re open for some odd weekends in May, and eventually resume regular hours of operation shortly before the end of the month. Slides, rapids, wave pools, and more all await you at Shipwreck Island Water Park, and if you’re planning on spending most of your afternoon there, they also have food and treats on site.

Enjoy the Spring Break Parties

Panama City Beach is alive with parties during the Spring Break season, and there’s bound to be events and celebrations being held that are open to the public. From beach parties to music festivals and beyond, there’s sure to be countless things for you to do if you’re in town during the height of the festivities. The Panamaniac VIP Card is something you might consider looking into if you want to hit as many Spring Break parties as possible, because in a lot of circumstances it will get you into music festivals and bars without having to pay additional cover charges or ticket fees.

Snorkeling and Dolphin Watching

Though you can go dolphin watching during any season, some of the trips do offer snorkeling outings where you can actually get in the water and get a little closer to the local wildlife. This is great during the spring because the water is definitely going to be at the best temperature to get the most out of the experience. Even if snorkeling isn’t your thing, you can always observe from the comfort of the boat and still enjoy the experience.

Activities for Both Seasons

Due to the temperate nature of southwestern Florida, most of the activities in the area aren’t really restricted to any specific season, which is great. A lot of these outdoor attractions are open year-round, and since winter and spring aren’t the rainy or hurricane seasons, you’ll almost never have to worry about anything being shut down because of the weather.

Visit a Preserve or Go on a Nature Walk

Florida is incredibly biodiverse, with so much more than just the marine life at the beaches for you to see. Just with the wetlands and flood plains alone, you’ll be able to see wildlife that you can’t find in any other part of the world. Many of these areas also host migratory bird species, so if you’re visiting during different seasons, you can have a completely different experience.

If you aren’t already experienced in observing wildlife, plenty of these areas offer guided tours, some of them even being free, and the experts will be able to show you exactly where to look to get the most out of your experience.

Airboat tours are another famous Florida mainstay, and they’re a thrill to ride. Navigating the wetlands on one of these tours is something any Florida visitor should experience at least once in their life.

Visit the Beaches

This one is definitely a no brainer, but the miles of sugary white sand are a sight to see. This is made even better by the fact that you’ll get an entirely different experience depending on the season. If you visit during the winter, the beaches will be much quieter, making the perfect environment for a relaxing day lounging and soaking up some sun with the cool ocean breeze coming in. Spring, on the other hand, comes with the lively beaches you’ve seen in movies. Either way, you owe it to yourself to take a trip or two to some different beaches in the area to see as many of them as you can.

Enjoy Some Local Wines

The Panama City Beach Winery offers some unique wines that are a refreshing change from the grape wines most people regularly drink. They specialize in fruit wines, many of which are made with sweet, tropical, fruits to create a vibrant drink that perfectly matches the coastal atmosphere.

If you taste something that you just can’t go without, they also allow you to buy wine on site and have it shipped home so you don’t have to worry about transporting it, especially considering that for airline customers that might be impossible.

Restaurants to Try

You can’t miss out on some of the local fare while you’re in town, and Panama City Beach certainly isn’t lacking for delicious food. Many of the restaurants have great local seafood that you won’t want to miss, and live music is a pretty common occurrence. Here are a couple popular restaurants you might consider trying.

Craft 850

Only open for late lunch and dinner, Craft 850 is a wonderful restaurant if you’re looking for gourmet food without a pretentious atmosphere. Their menu covers a wide variety of cuisine, and their bar boasts an impressive selection of beer and wine in addition to their craft cocktails. It’s recommended that you make a reservation, particularly if you’re visiting during a busy time of the year.

Uncle Ernie’s Bayfront Bar and Grill

If you’re looking to dine with a gorgeous view, you can’t go wrong with Uncle Ernie’s. Situated right over the bay and with multiple stories for dining, you’ll be able to have your favorite seafood while you hear the gentle rolling of the waves coming to shore. They frequently have live music upstairs, and the ground floor has a more classic restaurant feel if you’re looking for a more traditional dining experience.

Alice’s on Bayview

With a mix of surf and turf available, you’re sure to find something that pleases you at Alice’s. They’re open for lunch and all the way through dinner, so you can stop in for a casual lunch or sit down at night and enjoy the live music that they often have coming through.

Ferrucci Ristorante

If you’re looking to get your fix of Italian food with a warming, home cooked flair in a casual environment, Ferrucci Ristorante delivers. You’ll be able to find all of the classic Italian mainstays you’ve come to know and love, but also plenty of dishes with a modern flair that’s sure to please. While you’re there, don’t forget to try wines from their great selection.

Trigo San Francisco Style Deli

If you’re looking for a good breakfast and lunch spot, Trigo has you covered. They’re open from 7AM to 3PM, and they offer delicious soups, sandwiches, and pizzas. This is a wonderful place to stop if you’re looking for a classy but relaxing start to your day, and their high-quality cuisine will have you coming back for more.

There’s a certain elegance that can accompany a nautical décor, a happy configuration of sleek and modern with a touch of whimsy blending together to create a space you can’t help but notice. Our Laketown Wharf, 1-bedroom, 2-bath condo offers that special elegance, and its Gulf views add the final touch of wonder to your vacation made even better because you chose Vacations Perfected to house you during your Panama City Beach getaway! This guide to its wonders will give you a peek at what an amazing Florida vacation can look like when staying in the perfect Panama City Beach condo.

The Warmth Welcomes You

Decorated in the cool and crisp grays of the sea on a rainy day, you may be surprised to discover the warmth that this compact condo offers. From the moment the front door swings open, you will instantly be drawn to the wall of windows on the back wall and the views the windows offer, but first let’s do some exploring. The charming living room offers a comfortable place to sit and lounge, perhaps watch a little TV, and immerse yourself in the feel of your vacation home away from home. An open concept floor plan reveals an efficiently wonderful use of the compact space, giving you everything you need and so much more. The dining table tucked away in the corner under a large painting of a crab on the beach is where games can be played, meals will be devoured, and plans will be made. The touch of nautical is displayed in nearly every space, including a seascape over the couch, the aforementioned crab painting, and in the driftwood style furniture that gives the condo its warmth. A kitchen opposite those views brings more warmth into this picture, offering dark wood cabinets, creamy sand-colored stone countertops, and updated appliances for your use and convenience. Although there is only one bedroom in this Laketown Wharf escape, a fun hallway niche into which a set of bunk beds is tucked gives your kids a happy place to sleep. The bedroom offers a king bed covered in linens with a coral print and its own private and luxurious bath.

Florida Life Begins Now

The balcony with its views of the Gulf of Mexico will be where you spend most of your time, losing yourself in the hypnotic sights and sounds of its waters, but access to community amenities (pool, hot tubs, fitness center, and the Splash Bar overlooking the pool) means you probably won’t spend a whole lot of time inside. The times you are inside, however, will be comfortable, relaxing, and offer some really fantastic memories. Reserve this special condo today!

Which is, of course, why you are taking this peak at Sterling’s Reef, one of Vacations Perfected’s most popular choices!

We all love a good meal, but what we love even more is to have a place we can rest our weary bodies, get a drink, and maybe something to satisfy the rumbling of a discontent stomach. There is just something to the casual dining place that makes them more memorable and special than any fine dining. If you agree with this, join us as we explore some of the best casual places to eat in Panama City Beach!

A Journey South

Let’s start our trip by examining some of the flavors from south of the border with Finns Island Style Grub! You won’t find stale and flavorless ingredients, nor ones that have sat hidden away in a jar for ages. At Finns, you will find only the freshest and highest quality ingredients possible. As well, your food will never know the inside of a frier nor a microwave. You’ll find yourself in culinary heaven as you dig into a plate of towering nachos, or perhaps a warm and comforting taco or a large, bulging burrito. You can even go the healthy route and stick to a wrap or even get a smoothie from the barista bar! While you’re at it, why not get a coffee or two, organic and only of the highest quality beans of course, and see why so many flock to Finns no matter the time of day.

While we are looking towards the south, make sure you stop by Diego’s Burrito Factory. Offering burritos, quesadillas, burrito bowls, and tacos, you have the freedom to create whatever behemoth you decide, whether it be filled with steak and beans or fully veggie! As well, there is no better way to enjoy the beach than a good margarita, and Diego’s has some of the best around!

The Coast and Beyond

Now let’s move north a bit but keep close to the coast with some of the best seafood around at Hang Five! Not only will you find a selection of drinks from their full bar, but you will have a great selection of entrees ranging from seafood gumbo to the seafood nachos, grilled mahi-mahi, seafood pasta, crab cakes, and all that lies in between. What’s even better is every Sunday you can enjoy your meal and drinks while rocking out to live music. However, make sure you don’t miss out on their daily happy hour, which stands as a point of pride with them!

If you’re looking for something truly different, join us as we take a jump across the pond with The British Eatery, which hosts a wide selection of authentic English food all the way in Panama City Beach! You’ll find all the classics of British cuisine like fish and chips, shepherd’s pie, and bangers and mash, though you’ll also find a selection of more American items like gourmet hamburgers which are sure to add a twinkle to your eye when it is sat before you. Don’t forget to try some of their classic sides like poutine, pickle fries, battered sausage and more. You can even try their Frankenstein Burger which is made with elk, veal, and venison, making it truly a monster to behold!

This is but a short journey in the dozens upon dozens of casual eateries to be found in Panama City Beach. However, if you’d like to find out what other treasures lie hidden in plain sight, make sure you contact Vacations Perfected at (844) 478-2972 or book your rental property with us online today!

Vacations are only as wonderful as the homes you are staying in, and when you choose our 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath sanctuary on Thomas Drive, you are guaranteed to have the best vacation of your life! Located across the street from the Gulf of Mexico and easy beach access, you can enjoy the life you always knew you deserved, and if you aren’t convinced yet, this guide to all the wonders you can expect from our elegant showplace may provide the gentle nudge you need to push that bright green book now button you see on the side of our page!

The Unexpected

Your first thought when you walk into your sanctuary for the next week of your life may be one of surprise, as this home is not your ordinary beach property! Wood floors feel smooth against bare feet, leading the way to an open concept space where everyone will always feel as if they are connected and a part of the fun. A living room with black leather sectional hints at the nearness of the beach with throw pillows decorated with coral prints, offering comfort and relaxation during those moments you are not frolicking at the beach. The dining area provides a place to eat, a place to play, and a place to sit and enjoy happy conversation in the shadow of the large tropical painting that looks over the room. The kitchen, the heart of the home, is a thoroughly modern space. Featuring custom cabinets in a crisp white, stainless steel appliances, and granite countertops that are smooth and cool to the touch, this is a room in which you may not do much cooking, but the choice is there if you like! Head upstairs for a peek into the bedrooms, choosing the one you want for your own. Comfortable, cozy, and containing beds so soft you will sink into happy dreams, not awakening again until the sun is high in the sky! Sitting areas, en suite baths, private patios, and state-of-the-art televisions are more of the luxury amenities you can expect from this gorgeous place across from the beach. Sit out on the balcony, feeling the ocean breezes kiss your cheeks as you sip on your favorite wine, and watch the sun set over the horizon. These moments, right here, right now, are the ones you will never forget!

Reserve This Special Space Today

Vacations Perfected has the home you need to make every day a comfortable adventure!

One thing you will notice almost from your first day in Panama City Beach is the rain that comes rolling in on many days, right around 3 PM. Most Floridians know that it won’t be long before it rolls out again, and we rarely even notice when it starts or when it stops, but there may be a day during your fabulous Florida getaway where the skies stay gray, the sun hides behind the clouds, and the rain does not stop falling. There is no need to worry that your day is going to be ruined, however, even if it keeps raining all day; instead, keep a smile on your face and follow our lead with this guide to rainy day activities!

The Sky Is No Limit

The Pier Park Sky Wheel, rescued from Chicago and restored to its initial glory, will take you on a ride through the rainy skies (as long as there is no lightning), keeping you warm and dry as you take in the Florida landscape, snuggled up to the one you love most! The ride lasts just a few minutes, but the memories you make in the gondolas attached to the wheel will last a lifetime, and to be sure you don’t forget, a souvenir picture will be taken right before you board and will be displayed for purchase after your revolutions have been completed.

What a WonderWorks World!

As you and your family are driving down Front Beach Road, you won’t be able to miss a very distinctive building made of cream stucco, faced with four columns and seemingly perched precariously on its roof! Before you call 911, however, we can assure you that the building is meant to look that way and houses over 35000 feet of fun. Hands-on science exhibits, laser tag, and a 6D motion ride ensure that your children will have a blast, and everyone will stay warm and dry!

Under the Sea

You will spend quite a bit of your Panama City Beach journey at the beach, and the Man in the Sea Museum will give you a clearer picture of the world under the seas in which you will be swimming. This unique museum offers indoor and outdoor exhibits, including some of the earliest diving equipment ever made. Run between the raindrops and check out the submarine modules and pods that are lined up on the grounds or stay dry inside and explore everything else this unusual museum has to offer!

Stay Inside with Vacations Perfected

As you sit on your balcony watching the rainfall into the waters below you, the realization that choosing Vacations Perfected was the best idea you have had this year may bring a smile to your face and peacefulness to your soul. Reserve your stay with us today!
