Panama City Beach, Florida is the Spring Break Capital of the World.
You have probably heard it before, and it’s just as true today as it ever was.
Nowhere else on the map comes close to offering the same daytime and nighttime experience, all week long, and a stunning 27 mile stretch of pristine white sandy beach, at such an affordable price.
Why pay more to visit other Spring Break destinations, and get beaches that aren’t as nice, clubs that aren’t as impressive, and pay to see celebrity concerts and shows that aren’t nearly as good?
There are a lot of different components that need to come together just right to make the ultimate Spring Break experience. Here are 10 reasons why no other destination has been able to catch up with Panama City Beach, FL…
10. Spring Break Resorts & Condos
They don’t just happen to rent to Spring Breakers, during Spring Break. That doesn’t make you a “Spring Break-friendly” place to stay.
The fact that they host daily pool parties, bikini contests, live bands and DJs, host competitions and games and have thousands of dollars worth of free giveaways from sponsors earns them the title of “Spring Break-friendly”.
9. 18 to Party 21 to Drink
Underage drinking laws are enforced in Panama City Beach FL just as the are anywhere else.
What sets PCB apart though, is the fact that 18year olds are welcome to enter the superclubs and laid-back beach bars, along with all their friends who are of legal drinking age.
All you need to remember is your ID, and forget about having to skip certain clubs, because some people in your group are under 21… That’s never an issue in Panama City Beach.
8. Condo Rentals for Under 25’s
Another important thing that sets Panama City Beach in a league of it’s own when compared to the crowd of Spring Break destinations, is the fact that there are accommodations who rent to Under 25’s.
Many destinations are home to places to stay that will not to rent to Under 25 year old’s, concerned that they will cause damage to the rooms.
