Panama City Beach
The bounty of the sea!
Cheap, for the most part. Save $ by driving. Good for large groups.
Let's face it: Florida is ugly. The only pretty thing about Florida is the beach and ocean. It's awful hot in the summer, too. Panama City Beach has lost it's small town status with high rise condos...
In a nutshell
A great place to vacation and relax. Fun for the whole family!
Ripley's Believe It Or Not Museum
I remember old Believe It Or Not cartoons or other print media or radio items when I was growing up. I haven't visited this particular museum and have generally avoided going to these museums when I see them. There is one in Key West, and in Branson which I also have not...
White Sand Beaches
All along this section of the coast there are sparkling white sand beaches. In the winter when we were there, this made me think that there was snow. But it isn't snow, it is sand. Panama City Beach advertises their beaches as The best beach this side of paradise...Panama...
Environmental Interpretive Center - St Andrews SP
One of the things you can do even in the rain or when it is cold in the winter is visit the Interpretive Exhibit at the Environmental Interpretive Center. It isn't Smithsonian quality, but they did have a small aquarium, some diorama exhibits, posters about migratory birds,...
St. Andrews State Park
I picked this park to visit because it was close. The fact that it was named by Dr. Beach (Dr. Stephen P. Leatherman) as America¿s Best Beach in 1995 didn't really matter to us as it was January and cold. At other seasons this might be a selling point for the park which s...

Super View on the beach, covered pier area is where we ate and the food was great. Sarah got the Grouper Po Boy (12.59) and I got the Shimp Po Boy (11.59) both were awesome and were packed with meat! We got french fries with them and they were really good too. I decided to...
Schooners: Good Food -- Mediocre Service -- Great View!!
Sarah ordered the Grouper Basket which was a special for ($9.95) and it was great, and the french fries were perfectly crispy. I ordered the Soft-Shell Crab BLT ($12), which I had never eaten anywhere before, and I definitely wasn't a fan. It was just a thin fried object and...

Tony Roma's Restaurant: Closed
Tony Roma's is a chain that does ribs, seafood and steaks. We were a bit tired of seafood, so we went here.Unfortunately, all the Tony Roma's in the Panama City Florida area are closed. The only ones remaining in FLorida are around Miami or on the east coast
Bob got a rack...
Sharky's Beachfront Restaurant and Tiki Bar: Location is Good
We went to eat at Sharky's, and this was the most mediocre meal and service that we had for the whole week.
Bob had a dozen raw oysters and half pound of peel and eat shrimp. But of course the shrimp were cold and had no seasoning. I had the Grecian grilled tuna steak...

Beach Swimming Precaution...
Beach Warning! The rip currents along the beach can be very strong at times. Many people drown each year fighting them. If you get pulled under, swim along with the flow of the current and work your way closer to shore as the current weakens. DON'T FIGHT THE CURRENT!! If you...
Panama City Beach Parkway
As soon as you come into PCB the speed limit goes from 55 to 45. At the base of the 45 mph sign is a PIG holding a radar gun. How any POS Cop can justify this is beyond me. I spent $200 before I even got to the crummy, seaweed stricken, trash laden, poor excuse for a beach....

Camp Helen State Park
We took a couple of day trips to Florida State parks. In addition to St Joseph we went to Camp Helen and Eden House GardensFrom 1945 until 1987 Camp Helen was a company resort for the employees of an Alabama textile mill. Some of those buildings have now been restored. There...
Eden Gardens State Park
This was two-story Wesley house with elegant white columns and wrap-around porch. There were moss-draped live oaks and ornamental gardens. This was formerly the home of a sawmill owner named Eden. Then in 1963, Lois Maxon came in and fixed it up and bought antiques from...
St. Joseph Peninsula State Park
We went to Port St. Joe, and from there to the St. Joseph Peninsula State Park which is about 30 miles out onto a peninsula. At that time, it was $4.00 entrance fee. They have boat ramps, swimming, and bike riding. As a coastal barrier peninsula, St. Joseph provides...
