The crystal clear emerald green waters, clear blue skies, and sugar white sandy beaches are sure to keep you occupied during the daytime, but are there any fun things do do in Panama City at night? You bet! You can find ways to have fun no matter what your pace is; whether it’s laid back with kids, or if you’re looking for something a couple of gears higher…
Panama City Beach’s huge outdoor shopping mall is lined with boutique shops, themed restaurants, and some cool bars.
From Buffalo Wild Wings, 5 Guys Burgers & Fries, and Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville to Pompano Joe’s and a Dave & Busters.
Most places to eat offer a special kid’s menu, and on the right night, you’ll even find great live music at places like Hoffbrau Beer Haus, and Tootsies Orchid Lounge.
So whether you’re hungry, thirsty, or just looking for a fun place to stroll around, and people watch, Pier Park is sure to keep you entertained for a couple of hours.
Panama City Beach doesn’t shut down at night by any means.
You can catch incredible live magic shows at Gulf World, or ride Go Karts, play blacklight Mini Golf, and brave a Haunted House at Race City. Front Beach road actually has several places to play mini golf on fun, themed courses to work your way around, including Coconut Creek, and Pirates Island.
You can even work your way around Ripley’s Believe it or not museum, and Wonderworks interactive upside down house all what up until 10pm.
There’s no better way to experience the latest summer blockbuster than immersing yourself in the all-out IMAX 3D Cinema, located at Pier Park.
It’s way more entertaining when the bullets are flying out of the screen towards you
Split some pins at one of the 24 lanes at Rock It Lanes, located on Front Beach Road.
Late nights (after 10pm) you can even catch “Ballistic Bowling”.
Complete with special balls and pins, a smoke machine, and fun laser light show choreographed to dance music – it’s bowling, but not like we know it, Jim.
If you don’t have the kiddos with you, or never brought any to begin with – maybe a local bar is more your speed.
Sample that famous “Southern Hospitality”, and a generous pour at any of the bars lining Front Beach Road. You’ll find pool tables, karaoke, and even live bands, depending on your style.
