The beautiful sugar white sand beaches and emerald waters are enough to bring visitors to Panama City Beach. However, we know that many of our visitors are looking to mix things up on their vacation. There’s always something new to do in PCB and that’s one of our favorite things about the area. Pier Park is always adding new businesses to the mix. It is the hub for shopping, dining and entertainment for the entire family and it’s less than a mile from our Sunspot Realty office. There are plenty of classics like Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville and the Grande Movie Theatre but this year there is some extra excitement added to the mix. Here are three of our new favorites.
If you like southern comfort food and sweet tea, look no further than Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen. (It’s located right next to our new favorite candy store.) Their tagline is “good food brings people together” and we can’t help but agree with them! You can take a look at their lunch menu here and their dinner menu here. Appetizer options include “shore good” seafood dip and fried green tomatoes! Meals include southern classics like chicken and dumplings, southern meatloaf and of course fried chicken. Be sure to come hungry and leave room for dessert. (Banana Pudding… say no more!)
#2. I LOVE SUGAR
No matter your age, you will be “like a kid in a candy store” when you step inside this bright and colorful new addition to Pier Park next to Dave and Busters. There are tons of photo opportunities, hundreds of choices for candy and great gifts to purchase for the entire family. It’s just a happy place for all the candy and chocolate lovers out there to enjoy!
Skywheel is the newest attraction in Panama City Beach. Home of the absolutely gorgeous, indoor ferris wheel and an exciting ropes course! The “flight” in the skywheel takes you nearly 200 feet into the air to see PCB from a new point of view in a climate-controlled cab. The skywheel is breathtaking to look at day and night, with gorgeous colors displayed on the wheel after the sun goes down. Purchase your tickets to the skywheel here!
