Alvin's is a major tourist shop that can be found twice on Front Beach Rd(one might be on Thomas drive). There is a two story one and then there is a smaller one a few miles up the road. I highly recommend going to either of these shops because there are a lot of neat things in here. This is also where you can get some extra beach wear, so that you don't have to go to Wal-mart, which is a long ways from Front Beach Rd.
Alvin's is a very popular and recognized store. Once you go in, you will definitely visit the shop again before you leave and when you vacation here again. Alvin's has clothes, shell jewelry, some things that don't seem to belong(such as the wooden figure I have a picture of showing on this page), towels, gifts, postcards, and I am sure a lot more that I can't think of at the moment.
What to buy: Items to buy here, are gifts, shorts, hats, sunglasses, suntan lotion, and other stuff you might need. It is mainly a clothes, and gift shop.
I have not been in this store, but I could not resist taking a picture of it.
The owner's website says that this is a store for safe sex. This is the second store by this name in the Panama City area, so it is known as CK2. The original store is at 7510-A Thomas Dr. Panama City Beach, Fl
What to buy: T-shirts, gag gift, lotions, oils, regular, flavored and novelty condoms
What to pay: I have not priced items on the website.
