This guide to all the fun you can have during your stay with us will ensure that every minute is filled with happiness, excitement, and joy!
Toes in the Sand
The first thing you will want to do—the first thing everyone wants to do—is toss your suitcase on the bed of your Vacations Perfected escape and check out the sugar-white sands you can see from your window! A beach day is popular no matter what season. Wade in the cool and clear waters, build sandcastles at the water’s edge, or lie out under an umbrella reading, relaxing, and reveling in the magnificent sights and sounds you can only find at the beach.
Head in the Clouds
The sight of our little piece of paradise from above is one you will never want to forget when you choose to explore the area via helicopter! Panhandle Helicopter offers tours of the panhandle that last anywhere from 5 minutes to 25 minutes and allow guests to experience the breathtaking beauty of Panama City Beach in ways they never dreamed they could. Watch schools of dolphins frolicking in the waters, the inaccessible beaches on Shell Island, and if you time your flight right, the indescribable exquisiteness of a Panama City Beach sunset.
Everything in Between!
Enjoy dolphin tours by boat, shopping expeditions on foot, and much more during your stay in Panama City Beach. When you find yourself seeking moments of peace and quiet, your Vacations Perfected summer sanctuary offers as many moments of such as you need! Sit on your balcony watching the ebb and flow of the tide, swim in the community pools, and nap in the middle of a lazy Wednesday. Every minute of your early summer getaway in one of the most beautiful cities in the nation is guaranteed to make you feel as if you just stepped out of your dreams and into paradise! Reserve your stay today and start making beautiful memories.

This guide to Panama City Beach activities will ensure that every minute will be filled with fun and excitement!
Creatures of the Sea
If you spend any time at all at the beach, chances are you will catch glimpses of the creatures who make their homes in the water, but if you really want a clearer picture of their lives, a visit to Gulf World, located at 15412 Front Beach Road, will teach you all you need to know! Offering dolphin encounters and stingray snorkeling, animal encounters and daily educational shows, this beachfront amusement park may be the highlight of your Panama City Beach getaway!
Panama City Beach Activities Close to Nature
Conservation Park, located at 100 Conservation Drive, is one of our favorite places in town—after the beach, of course! Offering hiking trails, wooded areas, swampy vistas, and a serenity you won’t often find in town, you can have a picnic as you explore the tranquil landscape or simply enjoy a few hours in the park before heading to your next summer adventure.
Take a Step Back into Your Past
Remember the not so distant summers of your youth during which you spent nearly every day at the local pool or waterpark? Seasonal passes were inexpensive and your parents knew you couldn’t get into too much trouble in these watery paradises and were happy to let you spend your days working on your tans, flirting, and hiking to the top of the waterslide over and over again, for those few minutes of excitement on the ride down. Today’s waterparks are more complex and the slides are higher, faster, and more plentiful, especially at Shipwreck Island Water Park, located at 12201 Hutchison Boulevard. Offering lazy rivers and wave pools, gentler and more shallow areas for the little ones in your life, and of course, raging rapids and pirate themed waterslides, Shipwreck Island promises to be the adventure you’ll never forget!
Prepare for the Perfect Summer
Heading home every evening of your summer sojourn to one of our Vacations Perfected seasonal escapes will be the best part of your day as you climb into your comfy clothes and prepare for a quiet evening of family fun. Reserve yours today!
