Rainy Day Activities in Panama City Beach

Author 07-22-2021

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!
