Panama City Beach Activities to Look Forward to This Summer

Author 05-28-2020

If you stop to think about it, there are probably thousands of songs written about summer, all of which do their best to keep you in summer mode year round! As we hum along to the lyrics that teach us about easy living, hot fun, and nights where summer loving happened quickly, you can’t help but start to look forward to your own summer plans. When it’s time to stop dreaming about long days you wish would never end, sultry nights under velvety night time skies, and sunrise walks along the beaches of the world, turning your focus towards Panama City Beach and our Vacations Perfected summer escapes will make those dreams become a reality. This guide to Panama City Beach activities will ensure that every minute will be filled with fun and excitement!

Creatures of the Sea

If you spend any time at all at the beach, chances are you will catch glimpses of the creatures who make their homes in the water, but if you really want a clearer picture of their lives, a visit to Gulf World, located at 15412 Front Beach Road, will teach you all you need to know! Offering dolphin encounters and stingray snorkeling, animal encounters and daily educational shows, this beachfront amusement park may be the highlight of your Panama City Beach getaway!

Panama City Beach Activities Close to Nature

Conservation Park, located at 100 Conservation Drive, is one of our favorite places in town—after the beach, of course! Offering hiking trails, wooded areas, swampy vistas, and a serenity you won’t often find in town, you can have a picnic as you explore the tranquil landscape or simply enjoy a few hours in the park before heading to your next summer adventure.

Take a Step Back into Your Past

Remember the not so distant summers of your youth during which you spent nearly every day at the local pool or waterpark? Seasonal passes were inexpensive and your parents knew you couldn’t get into too much trouble in these watery paradises and were happy to let you spend your days working on your tans, flirting, and hiking to the top of the waterslide over and over again, for those few minutes of excitement on the ride down. Today’s waterparks are more complex and the slides are higher, faster, and more plentiful, especially at Shipwreck Island Water Park, located at 12201 Hutchison Boulevard. Offering lazy rivers and wave pools, gentler and more shallow areas for the little ones in your life, and of course, raging rapids and pirate themed waterslides, Shipwreck Island promises to be the adventure you’ll never forget!

Prepare for the Perfect Summer

Heading home every evening of your summer sojourn to one of our Vacations Perfected seasonal escapes will be the best part of your day as you climb into your comfy clothes and prepare for a quiet evening of family fun. Reserve yours today!
