Activities in Panama City Beach
When you head down to the world’s most beautiful beaches for a few days, everyone plans on spending some quality time relaxing on the beach and soaking up some of that Florida sunshine, but did you know that there are tons of activities in Panama City & Panama City Beach, Florida for kids of all ages? Are you the daring and adventurous type? Jump on the back of a speeding jet ski, take a high flying trip on a parasail, or maybe even try a bungee cord ride! If that seems a little too daring, no problem! Take the wheel of a go-cart whirl around multi-tiered tracks, play a round of mini-golf, or maybe even play some of the latest games in one of the many arcade & game rooms. You can take boat rides in all types of boats – fast or cruising – and if you’re in the mood to be a captain, you can even rent a boat for a day!
Three Locations On The Beach!
A trip to Panama City Beach, FL is not complete until you visit the Professionals of Fun at Aquatic Adventures. Featuring every water adventure imagined, Aquatic Adventures should be first on your list of things to do on your next get away. All of the activities for an adventure of a lifetime can be had here whether in, over or under the wave sof the most beautiful beaches in the world.
You know you want to. You’ve always wanted to try it, right? Whenever you see those folks cruising along the gulf, the wind in their hair and smiles as big as their faces…and why not? Renting a cycle or scooter from California Cycles is a blast! If you haven’t ever done it, it is definitely one of the “must-dos” when you visit Panama City Beach. If you have, you know what we’re talking about.
Classic Arcade Fun!
There’s never an admission at Northwest Florida’s oldest arcade. Now in our 60th year, Fun Land in Panama City Beach combines classic arcade-style and state-of-the-art video games all under one roof. Many games reward the player with tickets redeemable for awesome prizes! There’s the “vintage” favorites like “Rolla Win” and “Skee-ball”. It takes a little aim and a bit of luck to hit the Rolla Win jackpot for 500 tickets.
Adventure & Fun For the Whole Family!
The next time you’re looking for a really fun family-friendly activity when you want to do something in Panama City Beach other than go to the beach, stop on by. Goofy Golf is that one place your children will thank you for taking them to. With lots of colorful monsters to climb onto and into, and mini-golf to entertain you.
Get ready for the ride of your life!
Looking for a dual “family friendly” activity, in Panama City Beach, Fl.? We’ve got the most exciting racetrack with the fastest go carts on the beach at 23 mph! It’s also the longest track in N.W.

Your right hand is full on the throttle, only open water in front of you. The engine underneath you is firing water behind you as you cut through the bay. You and your bestie have a rendezvous with some dolphins just another couple of minutes ahead. After that is a walk on the raw beauty of undeveloped Shell Island, collecting immaculate shells, sand dollars, starfish, urchins. You have dinner and bask in the sun.
