Hit the Beach

Of course, if you’re going to Florida for vacation, chances are hitting the beach is at the top of the list. Luckily for you, there are numerous beaches in Panama City Beach that you can go to, which are great for spending time with your friends, playing games with your kids, running into the waves, or building sandcastles.

We love going to any section of Panama City Beach to find a great spot to set up an umbrella, unfold the chairs, lay out the blanket, and get ready to have our lunch picnic. You can choose from more than 27 miles of white sand to relax, take a nap, hop in the water, or read a book. Spending a lovely afternoon walking along the beach and getting a tan is a must-do over a holiday weekend.

Hop in the Water

After a few hours of lying down on the beach, you might be a bit hot. Of course! The sun in Florida is strong, and you are here in the middle of summer. Cool down by hopping into the water, surfing in the crashing waves, or teaching your kids how to swim. You can do numerous watersports in PCB that are fun for adrenaline-lovers or those who just want to float in the bright blue water.

We recommend jet skiing if you want to feel the breeze through your face and go at high speeds. If you would rather try something a bit more laid back, you can do stand-up paddleboarding, test your balance, and get in a good workout. You can have a healthy and wholesome vacation without derailing your fitness plan!

Take a Trip to Shell Island

Shell Island is fun to check out every time of the year, but coming here over the holiday weekend is a great way to see the lesser-visited island, escape the crowds, and partake in some exciting water sports. Your kids will love taking the private pontoon boat to this special island and then choosing what type of sports to do once you get here.

We recommend going snorkeling to see the bright reef, taking a picnic to sit outside and enjoy a nice alfresco lunch with your family, or swimming underwater to see if you can keep an eye out for the beautiful marine life that lives here.

Go for a Hike in St. Andrews State Park

There are so many fun outdoor activities to do in PCB that it can be hard to narrow down the fun things to do in just one weekend, but we think that heading to St. Andrews State Park to go for a nice hike, walk, or bike ride is a must-do to escape the crowds at the beach. St. Andrew’s State Park is a fantastic spot to cool off under the trees, rent kayaks or paddle boards to go in the bright blue water, and swim along the coastline.

Have a Filling Breakfast

If you are in PCB for vacation, chances are you want to splurge a little bit and go out to breakfast so you don’t have to cook or worry about making a huge pot of coffee for your guests over the holiday weekend. We love going to some of the best breakfast joints and casual coffee spots in PCB to enjoy a fun morning out on the town.

First, you need to try Jesse’s Place if you’re in the mood for a laid-back atmosphere, family-owned spot, and traditional American food that will curb every carving you have. Unsure what to get from the expansive menu? You can’t go wrong with one of the breakfast specials, like the biscuits and sausage gravy or the patty melt, smothered with cheddar cheese and grilled onions on thick Texas toast.

Next, if you would rather have a sweet treat to start the day, Thomas Donut and Snack Shop is a must-visit—especially if you have kids! We love coming here in the morning to the bright white and blue building that is very quintessential of a beach restaurant. You can come here at any time of the day to get a sweet pastry, pizza, chili dogs, burgers and fries, or bagel sandwiches.

However, we think that getting a donut is an absolute must. But of course, you can get a savory meal first to start the day in a healthy manner. Try one of the infamous kolaches, like the jalapeno smoked sausage and cheese, before exploring their expansive donut menu. You can go simple, like a blueberry or chocolate cream-filled donut, or try a ‘fancy’ donut, like the cinnamon bun or cream-filled chocolate glazed.

Head to the Beach

The top thing to do in Panama City Beach during Labor Day Weekend, or any time of the year, is go to the beach! There are numerous stretches of sand along PCB, featuring 27 miles of beach for you to choose from to set up your umbrella and start building a sandcastle. We recommend going to Schooners Last Local Beach Club to get an ice-cold beer after a full day of boogie boarding and surfing in the water!

Check Out the Local Parks

There are also numerous state parks and local parks that offer access to water, camping spots, picnic areas, and play areas for children. Head to St. Andres State Park and the Grand Lagoon for a fun day out on the water. We also recommend spending a day at Camp Helen State Park to check out the incredible plants, flora, fauna, wildlife, and sandy dunes. If you would rather get away from the crowds, nowhere is better than Shell Island for finding seashells, going hiking along the seven miles of coastline, and fishing in the crystal blue water.

Perfect Hues

Head to the nearby Baytowne Wharf on Labor Day Weekend from September 1st at 5 pm to September 3rd at 10 pm to enjoy artwork from local artists, painting your own pictures, going shopping for arts and crafts, and listening to live music from talented musicians. There is live music every day on the weekend, and it even features a fireworks show over the lagoon on Sunday evening!

Harley Davidson Event

Head to the local Harley Davidson in PCB on September 4th to enjoy grilling, barbecue lunches, motorcycle demonstrations, and tours of the infamous building! We know that you and your kids will love seeing these motorcycles up close and personal.

There is so much to do in Panama City Beach on Labor Day Weekend! Head here and stay in one of our properties from Vacations Perfected to have the best holiday of your entire year.

Check out our favorite activities for 4th of July in Panama City Beach below.

Real Fun Fourth

The ‘Real Fun Fourth’ celebration is famous in Panama City Beach! This fun-filled and exciting yearly event features fireworks on the beach, incredible views of the coastline, and dozens of special events that take over PCB and the surrounding areas between July 2nd and 4th every single year. We love how there are THREE spectacular nights of fun, so you can choose which night you really want to party!

There will be dozens of radio stations and music acts that dot the coastline during these fun days. You will never feel bored during your three days of live music, great drinks, breathtaking sunsets, and eye-catching fireworks.

One of the first events to attend during your time in Panama City Beach for the holiday is the Light up the Bay Fireworks on July 2nd. Sometimes it is best to go to the first event so you can tick this off your list and get pristine views surrounding the bright blue water of the bay.

The next day, you can see the fireworks light up the Gulf. If you are staying close to the Gulf, this is a great way to watch the fireworks from the comfort of your own home. We offer dozens of properties that have outdoor space that can provide expansive views over the water, featuring private patios, decks, and private pools.

Plus, Panama City Beach has the Freedom Rocks! Fireworks show on July 3rd that you can attend if you want to listen to live music, see the large fireworks display over the white sand beaches, and view the skyscrapers in the distance head here early to set up a picnic blanket on the beach and dig your toes in the and as you sip on some hot cocoa.

Finally, Panama City Beach offers the Star Spangled Spectacular show on July 4th! This is the show that everyone has been waiting for. We recommend heading close to the pier to see the fireworks over the ocean and claim a spot on the large stretches of beach so you can see the views unobstructed. Bring a drink, blanket, and your best friends to enjoy this show with your loved ones.

Go Surfing

Another fun thing to do during the 4th of July weekend in Panama City Beach is to learn how to surf! We know that lying down and relaxing on the beach can be fun, but it can get boring. That is why watersports are the best thing to do during a long weekend in Panama City Beach.

We recommend heading to St. Andre’s Park, commonly known as ‘The Park’ to locals, for a great surf session. This is one of the best spots on the Gulf and is conveniently located right near St. Andrews Recreational Area. The breaks are good for those who can handle their surfboard and want to also test their luck with longboarding.

Another great spot to unleash your board is Wood Pier. This popular spot is well known for its long wooden pier that juts out into the water. We like heading here to watch other surfers and test our luck with the beginner waves.

Lastly, check out Panama City Pier to enjoy reliable surf all year round. This area offers consistent and surfable waves that are great for use during the summer months. Although the winter season is best for offshore winds, the summer months can still offer slight wind that is good for beginners learning how to surf.

Grab a Coffee

Before you go out partying all night long for the 4th of July, it can be best to grab a coffee and get your caffeine fix! We love going to The Pour for our first coffee of the day. Head there to get an espresso-laden drink, like an iced latte or stone cappuccino with two espresso shots. This cool and laid-back spot in PCB offers traditional coffee drinks, other smoothies, and a friendly environment.

Another great spot to check out during your stay here is Roasters Edge Coffee Roastery and Deja Brew Coffee Shop. This coffee roaster offers freshly roasted cups that provide enough strength and flavor for you to drink black without any milk! Pair your strong coffee with Danish rolls, sandwiches, and other pastries.

Plan Your 4th of July Escape

Does this sound perfect for your needs? We think so too! Check out Panama City Beach for a 4th of July holiday.

We can’t think of any better way to spend the Tuesday after a raucous Memorial Day weekend!

Hit the Beach

Panama City Beach is a beautiful and pristine coastal area in the Sunshine State that is lesser-known when compared to the bustling towns of Tampa and Orlando – and we like it that way! Forget being on overcrowded beaches or wearing your way into a stuffed bar to get a drink – we have a better idea.

Panama City Beach is a slower-paced and more-relaxed area that still offers the best of the best, featuring white sand beaches, bustling bars, mouthwatering seafood restaurants, cool cafes, and much more.

Burn off some of those brunch calories by taking a walk in the beautiful weather. We recommend going to Shell Island to wander along the seven-mile stretch between the Gulf of Mexico and the Bay! You can also head to St Andre’s State Park to wander around the 1,200+ acres of marine land and picnic areas.

Easter Brunch

One of the big hits for why people enjoy Easter so much is brunch, of course! Everybody loves brunch, and restaurants in PCB sure do love rolling out the red carpet with new brunch plates, buffets, and good vibes. We recommend going to Schooners Last Local Beach Club to have a filling Easter brunch; you can also stay late into the night to listen to live music, go dancing, and enjoy a few drinks specials. Talk about the perfect place for an all-day excursion!

Another good spot for Easter brunch is Another Broken Egg Cafe. This brunch and lunch spot features Southern-inspired dishes that are sure to give you a little kick of spice, satisfy your sweet tooth, or give you just enough caffeine in your coffee to keep you going all day long. We recommend getting the famous shrimp n’ grits, a plate piled high with gulf shrimp and andouille sausage, red peppers, onions, and cream cheese egrets. Or, if you would rather have something a bit “healthier,” try the Eggs Blackstone Benedict with an English muffin, poached eggs, hollandaise sauce, bacon, green onions, and fresh country potatoes.

Easter Egg Hunt

Easter is a family holiday, so if you have your kids with you in PCB, chances are they are going to want to go on an Easter egg hunt! We recommend going to Frank Brown Park on the morning of April 16th to enjoy spending quality time with your children, hunting for easter eggs, and getting in some exercise on a beautiful morning along the coastline. Bring your kids aged 10 and under to participate in this family-friendly activity – and snap a few photos to put in your scrapbook!

Generally held on the day before Easter, the fun includes eggs, candy, and pictures with the big hopper himself!
