Valentine’s Day is a day to spend quality time with your partner, share memorable moments with one another, and talk about your future. There is no better way to enjoy one-on-one time than to head somewhere that is relaxing, filled with nature, and offers the perfect combination of relaxation with excitement.

We recommend going south to the beautiful Sunshine State, filled with beaches, incredible coastline, bright blue water, incredible wildlife, and much more. Bring your partner along to celebrate Valentine’s Day in Panama City Beach to show just how much you care about them.

Dolphin Cruise

One of the top things to do during your time in Panama City Beach is to take a dolphin cruise. This fun activity gives you an up close and personal view of the incredible creatures that are often seen swimming and jumping out of the bright blue waves while you swim or surf in the water. Check out Adventures by the Sea to book a personal or private cruise or a group tour for just around $45 per person.

The Adventure by the Sea company ensures you can get as close as possible to provide the ideal photo opportunity without disturbing the animals in their natural habitat. Watch as dolphins jump out of the water, swim right alongside the boat, and talk to one another. You can even combine the dolphin tours with Shell Island cruises to head to the nearby island, go snorkeling, and explore this tiny oasis.

Suppose you want to go a little faster to increase the adrenaline during your romantic day out on the water. In that case, you can also book a Waverunner Tour with Adventures by the Sea, offering a waterproof camera for memorable photos, snorkeling equipment, sunglasses straps to keep your gear secure, and a waterproof cell phone case.

Shrimp Boat Restaurant

Are you in the mood to sit outside, have a nice cold cocktail, and watch the sun go down by the bright blue water and white sand beach? We think this is the best way to start off a romantic evening with your partner. Head to the infamous Shrimp Boat Restaurant for ice-cold and tasty drinks, mouth-watering food, and great service.

You can even save money when you head here for an unforgettable date night. Buy one and get one drink for free, so you can each enjoy a carefully crafted Mai Tai or margarita to your desires. We recommend splitting some of their tasty and huge appetizers with your significant other, like the shrimp and grits with breaded and fried shrimp, tuna tataki for a healthier choice, or different steak dishes for the main event.

Enjoy a Couple’s Massage

There is nothing more romantic than heading to the spa with your partner to get a couple’s massage, relax in the laid-back ambiance of the meditative spa, and get a facial with one another. You will leave feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and ready to tackle the rest of your vacation.

We recommend getting a massage at one of the many spas right in town, like the Hand and Stone Massage and Facial Spa, Oasis Massage and Spa, Pure Massage and Spa, or My Massage Clinic. Try the Hand and Stone Swedish Massage, Himalayan Salt Massage, Hot Stone Massage, or Sports Massage to work out any stress in your muscles and relax.

The Swedish massage is a great choice for couples, offering the most common type of massage that really kneads into the knots in your muscles using long strokes and a variety of pressures.

Enjoy a Fine Dining Dinner

If you want somewhere very fancy for your Valentine’s Day dinner, then going to Firefly is your best bet. This upscale restaurant in Panama City Beach offers a fine dining experience with carefully crafted plates, strong cocktails, and a beautiful atmosphere that you won’t find in more laid-back establishments in this coastal town.

We recommend starting with the flash fried brussels sprouts with pancetta and spiced beans to split with the table. If you want something even more out of the ordinary, try the Escargot with parsley garlic butter, parmesan crumble, and grilled sourdough bread.

As a main dish, you can’t go wrong with any of the options. For seafood lovers, we recommend the Broiled Lobster Tails with whipped Yukon potatoes, seasonal vegetables, and drawn butter. If you are a steak lover, try the pepper-crusted stuffed filet mignon with roasted red potato hash, caramelized onions, and bacon.

Book Your Valentine’s Day Escape

As you can see, Panama City Beach is the ideal spot to reconnect with your loved one, spend quality time with one another, and have a romantic holiday. Use Vacations Perfected to book a spacious property to share with your significant other.

When the snow begins to fall in your hometown, you might not immediately think of going on vacation. It can sometimes be hard to figure out the best spot for you to choose for a holiday when you are cold and cooped up in your apartment.

Check out Panama City Beach, a beautiful and amazing coastal area in the Sunshine State that offers pristine beaches, great seafood, friendly people, pristine shopping, and outdoor activities that you can do all year round.

Head Out for a Fishing Excursion

One of the top things to do this year when you go to Panama City Beach is to book a fishing charter! Even if you are an experienced fisherman, it can be fun to book a charter with a professional who can help take you to the best spots, drive you to the top locations for catching fish, and chat with you about the specific lure, bait, and tackle to use for an athletic-filled afternoon. Who knows, you might even get lucky and catch a few trout, redfish, and flounder that made their way from St. Andrews Bay! This would be an incredible find and would surely make this a vacation you will never forget.

Plan a Date Night

If you are going to Panama City Beach with your partner, or even by yourself, you should plan a nice ‘date night’. Take yourself or your partner to a nice dinner in the heart of Panama City Beach to enjoy the fresh seafood from the blue water, feel the cool ocean breeze on your face, and chat with some of the locals who make this place so special. We recommend going to Firefly, a fine dining restaurant that offers a unique and amazing dining experience in the heart of Panama City Beach.

We highly recommend the escargot with parmesan crumble and grilled sourdough as a starter and share it with the flash fried brussels sprouts topped with avocado dressing. As a main dish, try the famous Australian Rack of Lamb with creamy pearl couscous or the Pepper crusted stuffed filet mignon with caramelized onions, roasted red potato hash, and spinach.

When you think of Thanksgiving, sometimes you think of cold weather, crowded restaurants, and bringing turkey in your very own oven. But we can help remedy all of these issues with a better idea in mind. Instead of spending your hard-earned miles and flight points on a trip to the ever-cold New York City or overpriced Europe, why not go somewhere tropical where you can enjoy the warm weather, sunny skies, and fresh food you won’t find in traditional American restaurants?

That’s right, it is time to head to the Sunshine State this November! We know that it can get too crowded in the summer months in Florida and too cold in the winter, so the fall is the best time to lay out on the beach, walk along the boardwalk, and explore the cities.

Check out Panama City Beach, a bustling and beautiful coastal city that offers pristine views of the ocean, mouthwatering seafood restaurants, and fun activities for you to do at any time of the day.

Thanksgiving Dinner

One of the best options for Thanksgiving in Panama City Beach this holiday season is Harpoon Harry’s, the ideal spot for you to enjoy your buffet. This traditional spot is well known among tourists and locals alike for serving crab legs, shrimp, buttery seafood, crispy bread rolls, and great views of the surrounding beaches. For just $35, you can have an all-you-can-eat buffet that will be one of the highlights of your holiday trip.

Next, you can’t go to Panama City Beach without attending Schooner’s Beach Party on a Friday or Saturday night! Put on your dancing shoes and your best outfit, and head to Schooner’s to dance the night away to live music and upbeat tunes. You can even enjoy sweet treats like s’mores and a few drinks in the moonlight.

After celebrating for a few days and enjoying a hearty meal with your family, we recommend going to PCB to kick off the following days of the holiday weekend at Aaron Bessant Park. The ‘Beach Home for the Holidays’ event on November 23 and November 24 offers a campfire, Christmas village, s’mores, and live music that will really get you in the holiday spirit.

Fun Activities

Along with Thanksgiving and holiday-themed activities that are must-dos for those who are going to PCB this upcoming November, there are endless activities for you to do with your friends and family. We love going to the nearby beaches to swim in the water and build sandcastles with our kids. You can also go to Pier Park to watch the fishermen bring in their daily haul and see the changing colors of the sunset. Another Fun thing to do with your friends is to play a round of golf at one of the numerous courses or challenge your teens to a friendly game of mini-golf on the boardwalk!

Panama City Beach is one of the best tourist destinations for you to visit all year round.

Florida comes alive during June – August, featuring crowded beaches, fun festivals, mouthwatering seafood, cool cafes, outdoor sports, and ample activities that are great for your group of friends, family vacation, or couple’s retreat.

Nothing goes better together than an ice-cold beer, coastal vibes, and live music — right? We think so too! The Summer Concert Series in PCB is one of the most widely-lauded and highly anticipated events in the entire state due to the plethora of artists who perform, the good vibes, the thousand of people, and the open-air amphitheater. We love this open and spacious theater that makes use of Florida’s amazing weather!

Bay Point Billfish Open

A fun event that is a must-do during your summer in PCB is the Bay Point BillFish Open fishing tournament in PCB held at the picturesque Point South Marina at Bay Point.

Beach Houses are Perfect for the Summer!

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. If you want the best of Florida without spending a fortune or being around tourists all of the time, this is THE place to be.

That is why we think that PCB is the hotspot for Mother’s Day family weekends for a fun and wholesome time with your loved ones. Plus, there are dozens of annual events that make Mother’s Day weekend here simply unforgettable. Let’s check out the must-do things during your stay here that are sure to make your Mother’s Day in Panama City Beach one you’ll never forget.

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.

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!
