We’ll let you in on a secret – while Summer is a great time to visit Panama City Beach,  the fun doesn’t stop AND the rates drop in the Fall. Fall is arguably the most beautiful time of year in PCB. There’s no reason to wait until next year to visit the sugar white sand and emerald waters.

These festivals are the PERFECT excuse to make a trip down to your favorite home away from home!

Panama City Beach Oktoberfest

Lobster Fest 

October 14th– 20th at Schooners

There are few things we love more than Lobster and the beach. Schooners hosts a 7-day Lobster Festival and Tournament and it is the LARGEST festival of its kind in the Southeast. Enjoy local lobster prepared in lots of ways, enjoy or participate In the sand sculpting contest and have an ice cold beer! Learn more about the festival here.

Truth be told, even if you don’t pick an event as your reason to visit Panama City Beach in the Fall – you will not run out of things to do. Long gone are the days of the beach closing up shop for the off-season. So find your reason and if you’re not sure what it is here’s 1 more that pretty much beats the rest of them.

The views.

Sky above – sand below – peace within.

See you soon!
