When it is time to visit a place you have never visited before—Panama City Beach, for example—you may feel a little unsure about all there is to do while you are there. In Panama City Beach, of course, there are beaches where you will be spending a large portion of your time swimming, tanning, or just filling your vacation hours by walking up and down the shoreline, reveling in the sights, sounds, and scents of ocean life, but did you know that Russell-Fields Pier extends 1500 feet out onto the Gulf? Or that Shell Island is totally uninhabited but is also one of the best places in town for snorkeling or watching dolphins play? This guide to the top tours you can experience during your stay with Vacations Perfected in Panama City Beach will ensure that this will be a getaway you will talk about fondly for years to come!
Don’t Just Wade at Shore’s Edge
Your Panama City Beach getaway is the perfect time to get out there and experience sea life, and the dolphin tours offered by Sea Screamer are an awesome way to do so! Take their Daytime Dolphin Cruise and laugh out loud at the antics of these friendly sea creatures or add a touch of romance to your adventure with a Sunset Dolphin Cruise offering all the fun the Daytime Dolphin Cruises offer but with a ringside seat to the spectacular Florida sunset! Both are two hours long, and both are family-friendly, so bring your kiddos along for an unforgettable experience.
A Bird’s Eye View
If you like to get the lay of the land, so to speak, before you head out for your own adventures, Panhandle Helicopter offers tantalizing glimpses of what you can expect from your getaway! Featuring flights that tease and last only for 5 minutes hovering above the beaches of Panama City Beach, flights that satisfy, lasting up to 25 minutes and giving you a bird’s eye view of everything special about the area, and everything in between, this tour promises to be your favorite—as long as you aren’t afraid of heights!
Under the Sea
The Gulf isn’t just beautiful to look at and fun to play in, the world under the sea will take your breath away as you learn to snorkel with a tour of Shell Island offered by the Shell Island Shuttle. You can also go deeper with a totally new adventure when you learn to scuba with Try Scuba Diving. Both adventures offer a way to get to know the area better and promise to be the most memorable part of your vacation!

Valentine’s Day is all about the love as we take the 24 hours to show the people in our lives how much we really care. But is one day really long enough? Your Valentine has been by your side through the good times, the bad times, and the super rough times of the pandemic, and this year you feel the need to really spoil him or her!

The Romance of Breakfast
Anyone can set up a romantic dinner, but have you ever considered the romance factor of a really good breakfast? There is no more powerful way of saying I love you then by letting your Valentine sleep in and awaken to the sight of you bringing in the most important meal of the day on a breakfast tray! And if cooking is not really your thing, the All American Diner at 15406 Front Beach Road offers takeout. Slip out of bed carefully, pull up their menu online, and call (850) 233-6007 for a special morning meal that never fails to please. The All American Diner is a Panama City Beach tradition and must be visited in person at least once during your stay for the complete breakfast experience!
A Bike Ride on the Beach
It’s not just the grand gestures that will keep the heart of your beloved belonging to you. Sometimes it is the smaller moments that bring about the largest impact: a kiss at sunset, whispered dreams shared late in the night, and a quiet bike ride on the beach during your romantic Florida getaway! Bike the Beach PCB, 17292 Front Beach Road, rents out beautiful beach cruisers; after that, all you need to do is find your favorite beach to ride on! We don’t think that part will be a difficult task.
Sweets for the Sweets
The romance of a truly great piece of chocolate can’t be overrated, and a visit to Kilwin’s Ice Cream & Fudge of PCB, 821 Pier Park Drive #100, offers the greatest proof! Offering specials every day, if you come in on Saturday, the taste of their Caramel Chews (buy one, get one free) will convince your sweetheart that you really do love him or her!
Quiet Evenings at Home
A sumptuous dinner enjoyed on the balcony overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, a romantic movie, and some quality hot tub time are all you need to finish off the ultimate day of love on a high note! Reserve your Vacations Perfected love nest today!
As we enter the beginning of the new school year, many classrooms look quite different than those in the past. With the advent of the pandemic, online schooling has become the latest trend, and although it may mean more work for parents, it also offers new possibilities! Schooling and working from home can take place from any home in the world (as long as it has internet), and since fall temperatures in Panama City Beach are projected to be absolutely gorgeous, why not pay us a visit? Our comfortable and stylish Vacations Perfected rentals are designed to make your educational journey one you and your family will never forget!
Classwork Has Never Been This Fun!
Whatever topic you choose to study can be made more interesting when you bring our beachfront village into the equation! Give your child a certain amount of money for souvenirs and snacks and practice budgeting for math class, explore the reasons why so many retirees choose Panama City Beach in which to live out their golden years for Social Studies, and make science class all about the world under the sea! Low tide at Rick Seltzer Park, located at 7419 Thomas Drive, offers a sand bar from which you can get an up close and personal glimpse into that world when the tide is low. Recess is as important to a healthy mind as it is to a healthy body, and if you choose to take part in the “class” by wading in the emerald green waters of the Gulf, no one is going to judge you! History class involves another field trip, only this one will be to the Man in the Sea Museum at 7314 Panama City Beach Parkway to learn everything there is to know about the history of diving; a trip into the past doesn’t always have to involve wars!
Hungry Minds Need Fuel
Seafood is known to be the best brain food there is, and in Panama City Beach, your options are plentiful! Grill up that amberjack you caught on your weekend fishing expedition or step out of the fully equipped and totally cheerful kitchen in your rental property and head to the beach for a lunch of surf and sunshine! Harpoon Harry’s, found at 12627 Front Beach Road, offers both as well as a delicious menu of seafood, burgers, steaks.

Working from home has taken very little to get used to as we recognize the benefits not just for us, but for the environment as well. Pollution is down, pants are optional, and those extra minutes of sleep every morning are helpful to our peace of mind and our health; tired adults grow ill so much easier than rested ones! As the borders open once again, allowing us to travel easier, there is another benefit that many of you probably haven’t realized quite yet. Working from home doesn’t have to mean from YOUR home; it could be any home in the world, including our Vacations Perfected Panama City Beach escapes!
Working Remotely from the Beach Will Hardly Seem Like Work at All
As you look about the space you’ve rented for the next week or so, choosing the perfect spot to work may seem easy until you realize that every spot is your favorite! Spread out papers and equipment on the dining room table, being sure you are facing the views available through the wall of windows at the back. The perfect backdrop is important for Zoom meetings, so maybe you’ll find yourself sitting on the balcony with your back to the sea, allowing coworkers and clients to realize how brilliant you were in choosing Panama City Beach for your working vacation! Or, on those lazy days when you just can’t bring yourself to leave the comfort of one of our premium mattresses, bring the work to bed! King size beds leave plenty of room for comfort and paperwork, and if you take a nap in the midst of finishing a report, is anyone going to be the wiser? At lunch, order from one of the area restaurants offering contact-free delivery or take a break and walk to the sea shack by the beach; the sights and sounds of the Gulf waters crashing against the beach complement a lobster roll perfectly!
It’s 5 o’clock Right Here!
When 5 o’clock rolls around, closing your laptop and turning off the ringer to your phone is guaranteed to be the highlight of your day—especially when you realize that summer allows a few more hours of sunshine! Walk out of your rental and head down to the white sands outside your condo and dive headfirst into the waves, forgetting you ever had to work at all. Enjoy a casual bite on Harpoon Harry’s beachfront patio (12627 Front Beach Road) as you watch the sun sink into the horizon, heading back to shore’s edge for a moonlit walk after you have completed your meal. Your Panama City Beach working vacation is destined to be filled with happy memories when you choose Vacations Perfected for your accommodations—reserve yours today!
What do you do when you have vacation time scheduled but none of your friends and family can manage to get the same time off? We suppose you could stick close to home, cross some things off the endless lists all homeowners have, and maybe enjoy a couple of margarita lunches with the company of your eBook. That could be fun for sure. Or, and we think this might be an even more exciting idea, you can take a solo journey to the beautiful town of Panama City Beach in Florida and enjoy a relaxing stay in one of our Vacations Perfected beachside hideaways! The following Panama City Beach activities for a solo traveler will ensure that this won’t be the first time you decide to take a journey all on your own.
Sunset Views and Quiet Contemplation
Not every activity you partake in has to make your heart beat faster during your stay in Panama City Beach; some of the most memorable moments will be those spent watching a sunset so spectacular it takes your breath away! Sip a glass of wine on the balcony of your Vacations Perfected condo, or walk along the shores of the gulf, enjoying ocean breezes and the company of other travelers enjoying the same view!
Explore the Wildlife
Gulf World is our hometown “aquarium” that offers an up close and personal look at life under the sea! Take in the daily shows that involve dolphins, sea lions, and a feather & friends show, or inquire about the opportunity to feed a stingray in Stingray Bay. You don’t need a plus one to laugh at the antics of these sea creatures—unless your plus one is a dolphin and you are checking out the Swim with the Dolphins program!
Shop ‘Til You Drop
Although you might miss your favorite purse and package holder during your shopping spree at Pier Park Drive, do you really think you need an anchor holding you back as they ask you if REALLY need that stained glass imitation of a mermaid’s tail? Of course you need it, and all the other fun and unique gifts you can purchase without restraint; shopping in Panama City Beach is definitely one incidence where solo is best!
As Night Falls and Daylight Fades
The best part of your solo journey to Panama City Beach will be coming home to one of our exclusive Vacations Perfected vacation escapes—reserve yours today!
