Spend the Holidays in Panama City Beach

It’s that time of year and if you’re looking for fun things to do either while on vacation in Panama City Beach or you live here, here’s our top holiday and Christmas activities in Panama City Beach. We’ll show you how to take your vacation to the next level! 

Enjoy the Warm Weather

One of the smartest things you can do in the winter is to go someplace warm. When it’s snowing in Ohio, the sun is still shining in here on the coast! There are plenty of warm spots throughout the Southern states, so why pick Panama City Beach of all places? Other places might be warm enough but few places in the United States or beyond can compare to the impeccable natural beauty of Panama City Beach, Florida. The beaches are breathtakingly beautiful and we have miles of pristine beaches and emerald waters. 

Go Fishing Without Freezing on the Ice

Ice fishing can be fun, but you sure can’t beat the thrill of fishing by the Gulf. Fishing is a favorite pastime around here and it’s a memorable experience that will keep you coming back year after year. Here you can catch Redfish, Snappers, Cobia, and most exciting of all, Mahi Mahi!  We recommend Reel Commocean for an unforgettable fishing trip!  

Sea Dragon Pirate Cruise

Sail away with the captain and his crew for an exciting day at sea. Every two-hour sightseeing cruise also includes entertaining pirate activities like swabbing the deck, searching for sunken treasure and water gun fights on deck.

Beach Home for the Holidays

A great holiday tradition for the family, locals and visitors can spend Thanksgiving weekend kicking off the most wonderful time of the year at Beach Home for the Holidays, with free holiday concerts at Aaron Bessant Park events like campfires and s’mores, meeting with Santa, a Christmas tree-lighting and more on Friday, November 26th.

New Year’s Eve Beach Ball Drop

Panama City Beach may be best known for fun in the sun, but one of Northwest Florida’s most exciting annual events happens after dark at Pier Park: The New Year’s Eve Beach Ball Drop. Come to Panama City Beach on December 31st to enjoy not one but two great opportunities to welcome in the New Year. The streets of Pier Park are closed off to traffic as thousands of revelers enjoy free live music, entertainment, fireworks, and good cheer.

Treat Yourself  

Give yourself a taste of luxury in Panama City Beach where you can find some of the most incredible and delicious seafood in the nation. When you find yourself sitting with a beach view in the evening with the freshest seafood in the Gulf, you’ll know that you came to the right place to ride out the colder season. 

Enjoy Comfort on the Beach
