Why Panama City Beach is the Place to be During Winter

People come to Florida each winter by the millions. Their reason is mainly to escape the brutal cold and relax, if just only for a few days, until having to brave that cold once more.

Florida has thousands of beaches and beautiful hotel getaways for travelers to choose from, so what makes Panama City Beach a top place to visit?

To start, the beach has retained a great deal of its natural state which makes it friendly for any traveler to visit. The sugar white sand that lines the coastline is actually the result of quartz crystals that were washed and grounded from the Appalachian Mountains, which gives the beaches their own distinctive color. Combined with the emerald water coastline, this is what makes this beach a top 10 beach!

Panama City Beach easily boasts enough activities to offer something for everyone who visits. Water activites, shopping, nightlife, golfing and adventurous parks reign supreme. Eco-friendly adventurers can look to St. Andrews and Camp Helen State Parks which surround the beach. Beachgoers have ample opportunity to take in the Florida sun mixed with surfing, parasailing, or snorkeling and kayaking at Shell Island nearby.

For the party crowd, don\’t miss Runaway Island, The Tiki Bar at the Sandpiper Beacon Resort or Harpoon Harry’s. There’s usually live music playing and great views of the beach!
