zoo_worldWhen you are stationed in an area like Panama City Beach you tend to feel like every weekend is a stay-cation.  Each weekend seems to be filled with something to do and the weather is almost always beautiful.With Memorial weekend coming up I highly recommend making a week end getaway to Panama City Beach.

Unlike many areas PCB has miles and miles of public beaches with easy access. You could spend your entire weekend just hanging out at the beach and ignore all the other fun things there is to do here. For the shopper in the family; head to the brand new out door mall, Pier Park. There you will find all kinds of shops and restaurants including a Margaritaville.  If you like putt putt golf you can pick from half a dozen places. My favorite is Coconut Creek because kids 6 and under play for free.  The waterpark, Shipwreck Island has a little bit of everything including some great play areas for younger kids.  Go see the lions at Zoo World or the dolphins at Gulf World.
