Instead of heading to Florida during the height of tourist season during the summer or the Christmas holidays, why not head here during shoulder season? You can enjoy fun monthly events, less-crowded beaches, and cheaper rental properties. Instead of overpaying for a crowded hotel room with your friends, you can simply rent one of our high-end and luxurious properties in Panama City Beach that are close to the local beaches, shops, and outdoor activities.
Luckily for you, there are tons of things to do in PCB during the fall season in Florida. Whether you want to explore the great outdoors, go shopping on one of the local streets, eat ethnic cuisine in the downtown area, or go to a once-a-year event, there is always something to do in the vibrant PCB. Let’s check out some of the best events and things to do in this beach-centric city.
Panama City Beach Oktoberfest
Did someone say beer? We did! Oktoberfest is world-renowned for being a fun and vibrant beer-centric festivity in Germany and the Bavarian countries. If you are in Austria or Germany during the month of October, you can enjoy pints of beer (more like buckets of beer), Lederhosen, and great tunes. The German spirit is brought to PCB for this weekend in October, filled with kid’s activities, playgrounds, rides, dress-up costumes, and much more.
Emerald Coast Cruizin’ Fall 2022
Another fun event to attend during your fall in PCB is the Emerald Coast Cruizin fervent. If you have a classic car, or you simply appreciate the antiqueness of vintage cars cruising down the sunset strip, head to this event in November on Aaron Bessant Park.
Pier Park Back to School Supply Drive
Want to go on holiday AND feel good about something you have done? Head to this charitable event in August to enjoy giving back to the local community that you are visiting.
Food Trucks of America Food Truck Festival
What better place to get some local grub for a filling lunch? Get a hamburger, hotdog, Japanese hotpot, slushie, or iced coffee at one of the many food trucks in PCB during this festival.
Doesn’t this sound more relaxing than being crowded with thousands of other tourists on the packed beaches during the summertime? We think so too! Head to Panama City Beach during the fall season to enjoy fun events and fewer crowds. Use Vacations Perfected to find the ideal home for you and your entire party!
It’s true that the trees won’t be losing the last of their leaves, and we 100% agree that it won’t be necessary to wear your winter coat over your Halloween costume, but when you choose to spend the holiday in Panama City Beach, we can also guarantee that you will have an absolutely sensational celebration! Spend your days and evenings eating all the candy you can find or dressing up in your scariest costume and your nights sleeping without nightmares in our Vacations Perfected seasonal sanctuaries; this guide will give you all the information you need to have the time of your life!
2nd Annual Halloween Hustle Costume Run/Walk, October 16 Frank Brown Park
The holidays have snuck up on us again and if you find yourself snacking more than you should, this annual Halloween costume run could be the solution to your tightening waistband! It’s all for fun, of course, so walk, run, or sit on the sidelines and get some ideas for the new Halloween costume you have been contemplating for yourself! Offering a swag bag for all participants and a medal and tee shirt as well, you can choose between the Halloween Howl 5K run or the Halloween Howl 1-mile fun run and pre-emptively work off those holiday pounds that are bound to creep up on you!
Halloween Haunted Holidays PCB, October 30-31 at Splash Bar
You may not know it, but you have been waiting your whole life for a Halloween in Panama City Beach party that is this exciting! Offering a Haunted Holidays theme and featuring costume contests, drag shows, and dance parties that will be impossible to ignore as you shake your spooky groove thing and show off your creativity in your own Halloween costume. Seriously, this event is quite possibly the biggest party of the year and if you miss it, you may just regret it forever! Tickets can be purchased online.
Truck or Treat Food Truck Festival, October 30, St Andrews Grill @ the Salty Hobo
If you were to ask your children, trick or treating is the most important part of the Halloween in Panama City Beach holiday and they may be more than a little worried they won’t be able to do so during your Panama City Beach getaway, but the Truck or Treat Food Truck Festival proves otherwise! Offering delicious food, beverages, and all the candy your kids can eat, the opportunity to beg for treats safely is one your children will thank you for!
Happy Halloween from Vacations Perfected!
We welcome all witches, ghosts, and goblins—reserve your favorite holiday hideaway today!
Summer lovers are a unique breed of humans, coming alive only when the sun is beating down on their shoulders and the mercury is rising. For them, the beginning of sweater weather makes them sad as they huddle in front of space heaters and fireplaces, seeking warmth in all ways possible. If this describes your personality and your life, instead of isolating yourself, why not head to the state of eternal summer when that calendar page turns from August to September? Panama City Beach in the fall will allow you to shed your sweaters and slip back into your favorite flip flops as you soak in the rays during the day and sleep in comfort and style in one of our Vacations Perfected fall hideaways!
Beach Day Every Day
Obviously, the first thing you’ll do after flinging your bags on the bed of your Vacations Perfected home away from home is head out for some toes in the sand therapy, and if you happen to arrive around sunset, even better! Walking along shore’s edge hand in hand with your life partner, your children, or even all by yourself is one of those activities that soothes the soul. And in the fall, although it still feels summery, the heat is turned down a degree or two, making the walk even more enjoyable. Because the summer crowds have mostly departed, it will feel as if you have your own private beach!
One of the best parts of fall is the taste of pumpkin that makes just about every dessert, breakfast, and beverage taste like a celebration of the season, and you can create your own pumpkin-palooza in the kitchen of your private escape. Create pumpkin spice pancakes (much to the delight of your children) with a box mix in which you’ve added a teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice and 2/3 cup of pumpkin puree (subtract an equal amount of water from the recipe to ensure it’s not too runny). And because adults deserve pumpkin treats as well, a pumpkin spice martini created with Irish Cream liqueur, vanilla vodka, pumpkin flavored liqueur, ice cubes, and a pinch of nutmeg will go down smooth and easy!
Ghost Stories After Dark
This last adventure requires a bit of pre-planning, but we’re heading back to the beach for ghost stories told under the harvest moon and in front of a roaring bonfire. Bonfires are allowed in certain areas with permits from the city fire department. Tell your ghost stories around the fire—Dem Bones is a great one that’s not too scary for the little ones—or just relax and enjoy an evening on the sand.
Our Vacations Perfected rental properties are designed for comfort and enjoyment during all seasons of the year. Reserve your stay with us today!
