This is a destination for beachgoers that is hard to beat as it fronts the Gulf of Mexico, the city covers an area of 7sqmiles, but it has 27 miles of sugar-white sands dotted with numerous clubs, restaurants and hotels.
In 1935 the first hotel was built in the area by developer Gideon Thomas stating, "I’m not attempting to grow vegetables here; I’m going to grow people." This is how business, mainly tourism became the source of the city's income and after Gideon Thomas, Panama City Beach never returned to that small village it once was.
Settled as a community in the 1800s, Panama City Beach was for a long time disturbed by pirates waiting for rich ships traveling from Mexico to Spain. Today the blue waters of the area hide great treasure that sank in battles with pirates.
Later the city grew to the reputation of second to none destination for loved-up couples who spent nights in the trendy bar ''The Hangout'' in the 1940s. Unfortunately, this hot spot for dancing and drinking was destroyed by Hurricane Eloise in 1975. Since then Panama City Beach became more family-oriented with numerous sights. Attractions include;
