Plan a 4th of July Escape to Panama City Beach

Author 06-23-2020

The last few months have been rough ones, but as we tear away another calendar page, we are all ready to start making plans for our next getaway. As the 4th of July holiday falls on a Saturday this year, many travelers are planning weekend trips. If your journey brings you in the direction of Panama City Beach, this guide will make sure your holiday escape is the most fun you’ve had all year! Starting with a stay in one of our Vacations Perfected beachside getaways, every minute is guaranteed to be filled with fun and laughter, especially as you learn that there will be fireworks celebrations this 4th of July in Panama City Beach!

A Day at the Beach

Independence Day on the beach is a local holiday tradition that is enjoyed not just by our families but by visitors from all over the world. Fill a cooler with snacks and beverages, pack up beach towels, chairs, and a large bottle of sunscreen, and head to the white sands that will be your playground for the rest of the day. Your options for fun are endless at the beach. From building sand castles at water’s edge to zipping around the Gulf aboard jet skis or private boats, the only limit to the fun you can have is your own imagination—just remember to keep reapplying that sunscreen or risk turning lobster red!

Prefer the Pool this 4th of July in Panama City Beach?

Not everyone enjoys the salty waters of the Gulf, but that’s ok. Many of our Vacations Perfected holiday hideaways include either their own private pool or access to a community pool, allowing you to hang out without having to venture too far away from the comforts of home! And if you’re bringing the party home, whipping up a batch of Blueberry Coconut Sparklers will add a festive touch to your celebration! All you need is 3 cups of blueberries, 3 tablespoons of lemon juice, ½ cup of coconut rum, 2 ½ cups of ginger ale, and sweet coconut flakes for an optional garnish. Start by muddling the blueberries in a medium sized bowl, add the lemon juice and rum, mix well and then strain the mixture through a mesh strainer to get rid of the skins. Now you’ll stir in the ginger ale, pour into glasses garnished with coconut flakes add ice and enjoy!

Yes, There Will Be Fireworks Displays This Year

 In many parts of the country, fireworks displays have been cancelled, but as of June 11th, that is not the case here in Panama City Beach! Our Star Spangled Spectacular will be held at the Russell-Fields City Pier and the M.B. Miller County Pier on July 4th starting at 9 PM, ensuring everyone will get a big bang out of 4th of July 2020!

It’s Time to Have a Blast!

Independence Day is right around the corner, and you won’t want to miss your chance to spend this holiday in Panama City Beach. Reserve your Vacations Perfected holiday escape today!
