Spring Break

Over the past decade, Panama City Beach developed a reputation as a spring break destination. While it doesn’t have the attractions of Orlando, it’s much cheaper than Miami, and the large crowds are known to get so wild, the city council is trying to place some restraints on the scene.


There are a number of beachfront accommodations to choose from. The Boardwalk Beach Resort has been the host for MTV Spring Break the past two years and is guaranteed to provide a great time. The Chateau is another party hotspot that features nightly DJs and pool parties, in addition to organizing events and games for guests.


Panama City Beach has 27 miles of shoreline packed with parties for the entire break. One popular spot is Sharky’s Beach Club, famous for its day parties on the sand with multiple DJs and bands performing at their Beach Bash Music Fest. Hammerhead Fred’s hosts two legendary parties on Thursday and Friday night every year. Thursday is the spring break staple, Foam Party with hundreds of gallons of foam smothering the crowd to the tunes of EDM, only to be followed by the paint-slinging Glow Party on Friday.


All of these parties are part of the Panamaniac Club Card, a rewards card that will get you a number of benefits if you choose to stay for an entire week. Rewards include free cover charge for Panamaniac parties, free beer and tropical drinks at night, access to the shuttle service and discounts at a litany of venues in Panama City. The card is only $50 and can be purchased at PanamaniacClubCard.com.
