Panama City Beach Florida – Unofficial Travel Guide

Panama City Beach Florida

Do you Love pristine beaches, white sand and emerald green waters?


After traveling full time with our family for about a month we pulled into Panama City Beach Florida. Panama City Beach is located in Bay County Florida on the Northwest part of the state there are 27 miles of white sand beaches and green emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico.  We fell in love with this place!

We really loved it here we pulled in in the off-season but the small beach feel as well as the small-town community environment was very inviting

The RV park we stayed at was two or three blocks from the ocean and was perfect for our first month long stop with the kids


We were able to make some great connections and meet some families and connect the kids with others their age within a week or so

Panama City Beach is world-famous st. Andrews state park which is ranked third recently on a list of top 10 beaches in the United States, there are 700 undeveloped acres and Shell Island is a local favorite
The cities year around population is just over 12,000 and Panama City Beach Florida has an average of 320 days of sunshine per year the weather is subtropical was a year-round temperature averaging 74° which means awesome weather conditions for those visiting, The area also boasts one of the highest concentrations of bottlenose dolphins in the world


We were not there for spring break, but Panama City Beach Florida is recognized as the unofficial spring break capital of the US

Of all of our travel destinations this was definitely in our top 10 places to visit and possibly live seasonally


A great time to visit Panama City Beach Florida is late spring or early fall it’s still warm enough to enjoy outdoor activities such as the water walking and hiking but it isn’t too humid
