Welcome to Florida's leading destination for exciting things to do. Panama City Beach has more to offer when it comes to land and sea attractions than any other location in the state. If you're into water sports, you will be extraordinarily happy with the prospects of scuba diving, fishing, sailing, snorkeling, surfing, and parasailing. For excitement away from the sea and salt, the area offers amusement and water parks, nature parks, mini golf, championship golf courses, tennis courts, live animal exhibits and shows. So much to do and so little time, but that's all right. There is always next year or next month and not experiencing all the fun is the reason to come back time and time again.
