6 Rainy Day Activities in Panama City Beach

The rain may have put a damper on your beach plans, but it doesn’t have to ruin your vacation. There are plenty of fun activities that provide shelter from the storm that everyone can enjoy. We've put together a list of rainy day activities in Panama City Beach that will help you get through the day.

Hit the Arcade

The arcade is a perfect rainy day activity because it appeals to visitors of all ages. There is something for everyone at the arcade, even if your little ones aren't quite tall enough to reach the top row of games. Panama City Beach offers a wide selection of arcades where you can grab lunch and play, like Rock'It Lanes, Dave and Busters, and Eat, Play, Win Combo!

Catch a Movie

Movies are another great option for rainy days. Many theaters now have cinemas with reclining seats and some theaters even serve food and drinks like beer or wine at your seat! In addition, most theaters have larger screens and better sound than your TV at home so it's a fun way to enjoy movies together as a family while on vacation. The Grand Theatre offers IMAX, 3D capabilities and the brand new D-BOX experience, making you feel like you’re inside the movie!

Find Your Way Out of an Escape Room

Escape rooms are a great indoor activity, whether it's raining or not. These intricate puzzle games give you an hour to figure out how to escape from a locked room. You'll need to find hidden clues and solve tricky riddles in order to escape before time runs out. Try Royal Escape Zone or Escape Zone 60 in Panama City Beach.

Explore Indoor Amusement Parks

Attractions like WonderWorks and Ripley's Believe it or Not Museum give you hours of enjoyment without worrying about getting rained on. Ripley's has a ton of interesting exhibits for you and your family to check out, and WonderWorks features hands-on science experiments for both kids and adults.

Go Bowling

It’s a rainy day, your kids are bored and you’re looking for a family activity the whole group can enjoy. Why not head over to the bowling alley?  We recommend Rock'It Lanes for pizza and a full afternoon of bowling, skating, arcade, and fun! 

Jump Around

Just Jump Trampoline Park in Panama City Beach is an oversized trampoline-park that offers hours of jumping action. You and your family or friends can jump, play dodge ball, and more in this indoor facility. It's a great way to get the wiggles out on a rainy day, while keeping active and having fun!

It's always worth having a backup plan for rainy days. The good news about rainy days in vacation rentals is that you have a place to wait out the storm. If you're at a beach rental, cozy up indoors, play a few games and stream a movie you've been meaning to watch.
