Panama City Beach Kids Activities

Would the ideal beach destination for you provide plenty of entertainment for your kids? If so, not all Florida destinations are created equal. Some offer beautiful beaches and water sports, but not much more to keep kids occupied. If you're looking for a place that offers entertainment on and off the beach, check out Panama City Beach kids activities. Not only does this northwest Florida destination offer the best in outdoor adventure, but it also has plenty of attractions for a rainy day. Read on to discover the best kids activities in Panama City Beach.

The Big Attractions

You already know that your kids love building sand castles and splashing in the surf, but what if you want to add another dimension to your trip? Some of the most popular Panama City Beach kids activities are actually away from the beach. During a trip to this Florida destination you won't want to miss the Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum or Gulf World (where your kids can come face to face with dolphins and other marine life). To infuse a little education into a sun-soaked trip, you can count on these attractions.

Off Shore Excursions

Not all education has to take place indoors. Some of the best kids activities in Panama City Beach are those that take place off shore. From climbing aboard a seaplane to gaining a bird's eye view of the coastline to chartering your own fishing boat, there are plenty of opportunities for your kids to marvel at nature during your trip. Older kids will love the opportunity to go parasailing or snorkeling, while younger kids will be thrilled to encounter dolphins for the first time on a dolphin watching tour. Glass bottom boats are another fascinating tour option.

Rainy Day Activities

If you wake up to clouds or rain, you're going to want to have a backup plan for Panama City Beach kids activities. Fortunately there are lots of things to do in Panama City Beach when it rains. One dependable activity is miniature golf, which can actually be more enjoyable on a cloudy day when it isn't so hot. Arcades are another option, and if you give them a few dollars, kids can get hours of entertainment at Fun Land Arcade. A rainy day could also be the perfect day to go to a local museum, such as the Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum.

Fun for the Whole Family

Not all kids activities in Panama City Beach are for kids only. Adults can have just as much fun in sand castle competitions or playing volleyball as their kids. Some fun family activities include WaveRunner rentals, helicopter tours, a trip to the local movie theater, watching the sun set during a dinner cruise, splashing around at Shipwreck Island Water Park, or seeing incredible creatures at Zoo World. The most important part of a family trip is doing things together. While of course you could send your kids off for a fishing lesson, why not plan a tour together for some valuable quality time?
