When to visit Panama City Beach

Panama City Beach attracts visitors throughout the year with warm weather, pristine beaches, hotel discounts, and family attractions. The most popular time to visit is summer, when kids are on vacation and people take to the water for activities such as snorkeling, diving, fishing, parasailing, and boating. Because of the start of the school season, fall brings the fewest visitors; however, many empty-nesters and couples come during this time for events, lower prices, and fewer crowds. Winter attracts people from colder destinations up north in search of a warm escape. Many of these snowbirds come for longer stays, renting homes or condominiums for the entire winter. Spring is a popular time for spring break festivities, when the beaches overflow with partygoers. read more
