Panama City and its beach
are the Panhandle’s fun city, a place that welcomes spring breakers, families, and everyone in between. The Miracle Strip Amusement Park has thrill rides and a midway. It’s open daily, June through Labor Day, and on weekends from mid-March through May. Across the way, Shipwreck Island Water Park has a wave pool, a tube ride, and thrill slides. The beach at St. Andrews State Recreation Park took accolades from Condé Nast Traveler magazine as the “number one beach in America.” This is four-season Florida, where winter cold fronts can bring icy temperatures. It just makes springtime all the sweeter, a starburst of color, birdsong and fragrance. It usually arrives in late February or early March. Summer is the high season, with the highest hotel rates. This chapter contains the most magical places to stay, the best restaurant discoveries, and the fun activities and special moments that a couple will remember forever.
