Keeweechic's Panama City Beach
Panama City Beach was established in 1953. The first cities formed between the Hathaway Bridge and Phillips Inlet Bridge. Later, the City of West Panama City Beach was created by the Florida Legislature.
There are over 27 miles of sugary white sand along the Gulf of Mexico and in 1995 was rated number one in a survey or world beaches and in 2000 it was rated number four in America. There are also three state parks ranked among the nation's top 20 beaches. St. Andrews Park is made up of 1,063 acres of beaches, dunes, pine flatwoods, salt and freshwater marshes. Shell Island, across the Bay, is an uninhabited barrier island that can only be visited by boat.
The waters are a clear emerald green especially around September/October. Although there had been a tropical storm hit a few days earlier to our visit and a hurricane out in the gulf waiting to come ashore a couple of days after we left. Still the weather was great and our timing perfect.
If you have more time than we did, the area has a host of things to offer. For divers there are natural, historical, and artificial reefs in the waters off Panama City Beach which provide some great dive sites. The area is very much family oriented with amusements from mini golf, recreation areas, Zoo World and of course all the beach activities. There are also a huge amount of accommodation choices from waterfront resorts (both on the beach and on the bay) to smaller, family-owned motels.
