Panama City is a popular tourist town located in the heart of Northwest Florida. Here, both locals and visitors alike can take a tour on the Oyster Trail – a series of restaurants and breweries that sell fresh oysters scattered across E. 3rd Court, 4th Street, and 12th Street. After you’re done eating oysters, you can head on over to Beck and Bayview Avenues to start the Ale tour – a walking tour of different pubs and breweries that serve local brews and play live music.
In addition to beverage and food tours, Panama City also hosts a number of different walking tours such as the Florida National Scenic Trail. On this trail, guests will be able to spot wildlife like bald eagles, sea turtles, black bears, and osprey all in their natural habitats. Explorers can also go horseback riding, rent canoes, swim, and set up camp on this world-famous recreational trail, as well.
Panama City also has a rich history. Travelers can visit McKenzie Park, which was the birthplace of Panama City dating all the way back to 1887. If you’re a celebrity buff, you should take a trip to the Martin Theater (known back then as the Ritz) over on Harrison Avenue. This theater was the most popular and well-known theater back in the 1960s and hosted events for the likes of Clark Gable and countless others.
This lovely city is home to a slew of different recreational activities, historical sites, restaurants, and shopping. The city also hosts many annual events such as Oktoberfest, Panama City’s Songwriting Festival, and countless art and holiday festivals. So whether you’re a local or visiting from out of town, there’s always something going on to make you happy!
