The Panhandle’s Summer Playground


SPONSORED EDITION
Sunset cruises, oyster bars, music festivals—Southerners have never had to look for reasons to flock to Panama City Beach. But thanks to twenty-seven miles of pristine shoreline—one of the prettiest stretches of the panhandle—the town not only lures visitors with attractions galore but boasts a bevy of outdoor adventures unlike any other destination on the Gulf, from offshore charter fishing expeditions for red snapper to combing nearby Shell Island for double turkey-wing or conch shells hidden in the dunes.  
Piers, parks, and local wildlife abound, too. At St. Andrews State Park, you can snorkel and marvel at flounder swimming by your feet, or angle for a fresh Spanish mackerel from a deep-sea jetty. Watch for dolphins and sea turtles at Camp Helen State Park, a gem just north of downtown where you can take a dip in Lake Powell, Florida’s largest coastal dune lake. In the mood to stay on land? Amble the boardwalks or bike the miles of trails among the pines at Conservation Park. You’ll have earned that picnic lunch you carried.
