Weather in Panama City Beach in April
Springtime in Panama City Beach is in the mid-70s in the daytime and high 50s to low 60s at night, making it easier to schedule events. You can attend indoor activities, go shopping, or hit the theme parks in the mornings, and go to the beaches in the afternoons when it’s warmer.
April is also a perfect time for deals on activities and travel, and you will probably avoid spring breakers. It means there will likely be more room for tours and other guided events.
Best Spring Activities for this Panama City Beach Easter
Of course, people come to the Gulf Coast of Florida for sun, surf, and sand. That’s understandable—we have some of the most beautiful, sparkling white sand beaches in the country, accompanied by the Gulf of Mexico’s blue and green waters. There are also lots of other things to do in Panama City Beach. Here are a few of the favorites.
Get in the Water!
Swimming and sitting on the beach are not all there is to do in the water. Watersports are huge in Panama City Beach. At Florida Watersports, you can rent and buy fishing gear, kayaks, life vests, and safety equipment for your adventures. Easy E Watersports, Emerald Surf Watersports, and Panhandle Watersports are local go-to companies for jet ski rentals (they require some experience with jet skis).
If you want a real adrenaline pump this Easter Panama City Beach, Panama City Parasailing will take you out on the ocean so you can take off and land on a boat. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned pro, you can get your thrills right over the water.
Panama City Parasailing also has boat rides, bikes, comfortable beach chairs, and stand-up paddleboards for rent. If you want to see dolphins, they offer 2-hour adventures where you can view them and swim with them.
Another favorite for dolphin and jet ski tours is Sunshine Water Sports. They can take you to Shell Island, where you can collect shells and sand dollars, rent you a pontoon boat, and show you how to parasail off their banana boat.
Visit Panama City Beach Theme Parks
If you want a low-key afternoon, Coconut Creek Family Fun Park has jungle-themed miniature golf and a giant maze to entertain you.
WonderWorks is a family-friendly favorite, with hands-on displays like a Tesla coil you can touch through a special glove and a hurricane shack that imitates some of the experiences of being in a hurricane. Think you’re tough? Let’s see you lie on their bed of nails! There are zones for dancing, a strike-a-pose zone, and there is even a giant piano you can run on!
Need to kick it up a notch? Try out Race City, with “the fastest, tallest, and steepest go-kart tracks in Panama City Beach.” Race City also has other thrill rides, blacklight miniature golf, fairground rides, a sky coaster, and a massive arcade with everything from classic arcade games to the latest video games.

Spend Time in Nature
Aside from the beach, there are many opportunities to view the Florida panhandle’s diverse ecosystems during your Easter Panama City Beach vacation.
Zoo World Panama City Beach

They often have special events, so if you want to participate in one, check their website before leaving for Panama City Beach and book in advance.

While you’re in Florida, a trip to the swamplands is a must. Airboat Adventures will take you on a captivating journey through alligator country.
