Panama City Beach on Florida’s beautiful Gulf Coast is first and foremost a beach destination. But when you need a break from the sun and swimming, (or if your parade gets rained on), our beach town has plenty of attractions to keep you entertained with or without the Gulf waters. A popular area is Pier Park. An outdoor retail, dining and entertainment mall, Pier Park offers familiar chain restaurants like Olive Garden, Texas Roadhouse and Margaritaville, along with popular stores like Forever 21, Dillard’s, Marshalls, and many more. When shopping is not longer keeping your family entertained, head to the SkyWheel (a big hit with kids of any age), or see what’s playing in the heart of Pier Park at the Grand Theatre.

Along with the variety of stores, dining and activities, visitors also enjoy how clean and safe the area is.

Pier Park is open daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
