Panama City Beach is the perfect place to turn your tournament visit into a family vacation. So if you’re planning to attend the Trident Cup in the spring, Endless Summer in August, or Panama City Beach Classic in the fall, there’s a lot to do here. From the sand to the sea, here are some of our favorite activities.
First up, visit Zoo World Zoological Conservatory in Panama City Beach. This zoo is home to over 500 animals from all over the world, including lions and tigers! You can also feed some very special residents—their alligators and giraffes!
After you’ve spent some time with the animals, head over to St. Andrews State Park in Panama City Beach. This park offers plenty of opportunities for fun in the sun, including swimming areas on both the gulf and bay. Bring your fishing pole and take a shot at catching dinner or rent a paddle board and explore the coastline.
Now it’s time to make like a tourist—go shopping at Pier Park in Panama City Beach! This outdoor mall has everything from restaurants and coffee shops to big-brand retail shops. And yes, there is a pier at the end of the shopping center, right on the beach. There’s a small fee to walk the pier but the photos will be worth it.
Looking for something a bit more adventurous? Head over to Shipwreck Island waterpark in Panama City Beach. This park has tons of rides for kids of all ages—you’ll never look at water slides the same way again!
Whether you’re looking for a quiet beach vacation or an active one, Panama City Beach is a beautiful place to explore before or after your games. The city has something for everyone.
