It goes without saying that Panama City Beach is famous for its white-sand beaches and massive Spring Break parties, but there’s so much more than meets the eye. While we certainly recommend you check out the beaches during your stay, here are some other lesser-known Panama City attractions you might enjoy seeing, and if you’ve been here before, maybe they can bring some new life to your favorite vacation spot.
Mini Golf Courses
Florida is actually home to a large number of historic mini golf courses, and while they’re in plain view, it may be something you’ve never considered doing during your stay. With nearly 10 courses in the Panama City Beach area alone, you’ll find that you could easily fill up more than just a day’s worth of activity by hopping from course to course. Some courses are even alcohol friendly, so if you don’t have the kids with you, you can add an extra spin to your mini golf experience.
Find Your New Favorite Wine
Panama City Beach Winery offers a variety of wines that are just as vibrant as the city itself, and if you aren’t familiar with fruit wines this will certainly be a new experience for you. Rather than making traditional grape varietals, Panama City Beach Winery makes sweet, refreshing wines out of the tropical fruits that go hand in hand with the beach atmosphere. They do complimentary wine tastings from 10AM – 4:30PM every Monday through Saturday, featuring flavors like Key Lime, Guava, Passion Fruit, Peach, Orange Coffee, and plenty more! If you can’t go without it, they also have the option for you to have some shipped to your house, so you don’t have to worry about traveling with it.
As scenic as the beaches are, much of Florida is full of vibrant, unique ecosystems that you’re sure to enjoy, and there are plenty of guided tours and Panama City attractions to make sure you get the most out of your experience. Depending on which area you visit, you’ll be able to go canoeing and kayaking, snorkeling in natural springs, riding on airboats, diving, and more. You’ll thank yourself for seeing even more of the natural beauty that’s just a little off the beaten path.
Walk the Conservations
In addition to the tours out there, you can also go for a relaxing, scenic walk through the Conservation Park. This is a great spot to visit if you enjoy watching the wildlife, or if you’re just looking to capture the serenity of the great outdoors. The areas are friendly to both bike and foot traffic and are rarely busy enough to be crowded.
