When we travel, we love to learn as much as possible about the place we are visiting. We go about our days exploring the sites, attractions, and landscape of wherever we landed. Learning about the place and the people who once walked along the streets we are now exploring gives the getaway a little more depth and a lot more luster. If you are a kindred spirit and are right now planning your own historical journey to our favorite place on earth, this guide to the past will ensure your Panama City Beach historical journey will be one you never forget!
Man in the Sea Museum, 17314 Panama City Beach Parkway
With the crystal clear waters of the Gulf located just steps away from the door of your Vacations Perfected escape, you can expect that water activities, including diving, are much loved, and the Man in the Sea Museum gives away all the details! Dedicated to revealing the history of diving and the beauty that lies under the water, this museum has exhibits that go back over 100 years. Featuring diving helmets, experimental diving systems, and the first underwater living facility, their attention to detail brings the undersea world alive and will fascinate people of all ages.
Anyone who has ever lived on the coast understands the various worries and problems that accompany seaside living, including surviving hurricanes and staying cool in the hottest days of summer—especially before air conditioning! The Latimer Cabin, located on the northeastern shore of Powell Lake, is a perfect example of American ingenuity. Built in 1935 from cypress logs, the cabin was designed to let the Gulf winds keep the home cool naturally, and the 22 windows are placed to ensure that no views are left unseen. The cabin was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2004, preserving its history as a prime example of early Florida living forever.
The Gideon vs. Wainwright Case Historical Marker
Sometimes events happen that change the world for the better, and the Gideon vs. Wainwright Case is a prime example. Once upon a time, the impoverished were not appointed an attorney if they couldn’t afford one and were forced to defend themselves in trial, but in 1963 everything changed. Going all the way to the Supreme Court after being denied an attorney, the Justices ruled that every American accused of a serious crime must be appointed an attorney paid for by the public. A marker commemorating this historic event stands outside one of the original courthouses in Panama City, just a short drive from your Panama City Beach hideaway; if it fits into your schedule, it is worth the trip!
