Romance looks easy in the movies. Boy meets girl, boy finds a cute way to ask girl out, and boy and girl fall in love and live happily ever after. But what the movies don’t show is that happily ever after involves a lot of work! It’s easy to slack on the work when your jobs, your kids, and your families fill up your hours, but when you plan a romantic getaway to Panama City Beach, we at Vacations Perfected can help you remember the important stuff like date nights and quiet evenings in. This guide to romantic things to do in Panama City Beach FL will offer up the perfect ingredients to ensure your happily ever after really does last forever!
Tranquility by the Sea, 601 Grand Panama Boulevard

We are, of course, talking about the Sweetheart Special offered by Tranquility by the Sea, one of our favorite local day spas! Also offering the All You Need is Love special that includes a complete spa service of a Swedish massage performed with chocolate oil, hot stones, and feet and scalp massages, all that’s missing is a glass of champagne.

Let Your Hair Down
After all these months of being cooped up inside, it will be a nice change to get out and dance to the music of your people!

Although there is a lot to be said for cuddling close together with your valentine on a winter night in Ohio, the romance of a tropical Florida night creates memories that will never be forgotten. Palm trees swaying in the breeze, emerald waters slapping against sandy shorelines, and the feel of your sweetheart’s hand held in yours without the barriers of mittens: These moments add up to create a night that is so perfect you won’t be able to remember why you ever considered staying home in the cold! Following this guide to romantic activities during your stay in one of our Vacations Perfected holiday escapes will be the only thing that can make your Valentine’s Day in Panama City Beach getaway even better!
An Early Start
When you have so much love for someone that one night isn’t enough time to express it all, the Valentine’s Sweetheart Party which takes place at Avenue Sea on February 13th allows you to extend the special moments! Offering sweet chocolates, live entertainment, and your favorite wine or champagne, the party starts at 5:00 PM and ends at 7:00 PM. But don’t worry; everyone knows your love will last forever!
Music and Romance
As the first chords of music float out into the night sky, the stars in your partner’s eyes will outshine the ones up above when you take in a performance of classic music at the Beach House of Gulf Highlands. Romance and music have gone hand in hand for centuries, and spending time under the stars enjoying the music you can’t help by tap your toes to is the perfect way to show your love just how much she means to you!
Small Moments Add Up to Big Romance
Romance isn’t always about grand gestures; sometimes it can be the small moments that remind you of your feelings for each other. Donuts and coffee (Thomas Donut & Snack Shop has been a local tradition for years!) enjoyed in bed as you postpone getting dressed for the day, quiet walks along the shore as the sun rises or sets, or secrets shared in the hot tub after a long day of exploring are moments that may not seem like much at the time, but they are the ones you will think about long after you return to real life.
Say Yes to Love
Our Valentine’s condos are the perfect places to say yes to love—reserve yours today!
