Panama City Beach Events & Attractions

A trip to Panama City Beach offers plenty of opportunities to have some serious fun. Of course, water plays a leading role in local activities, with snorkeling, swimming, boating, fishing, windsurfing, parasailing, and jet-skiing all popular pastimes. Splash around at the popular Ship Wreck Island Water Park. Cruising to Shell Island on a glass-bottom boat, riding an airboat through the back waters and marshlands for glimpses of gators, and diving around the Gulf’s many wrecks and reefs are all fun things to do in Panama City Beach. Away from the water, visitors can bike, camp, and hike in St. Andrews State Recreational Park, play a round of golf or two of miniature golf, race around some of the most creatively build go cart tracks, or just visit the zoo. Spend endless hours window shopping, go fishing from the pier, ride the new SkyWheel, watch IMAX movies at the Grand Movie Theater, play laser tag, loose yourself in the mirror maze, sing along with the dueling pianos, or eat at any of the 25 fine restaurants all located at Pier Park outdoors shopping mall.
