Panama City Beach: Oh, The Places You’ll Go!

We had a super awesome trip! (So sad it’s over! But reality calls!) I wanted to tell you more about what we did while in Panama City Beach, Florida. If you take a trip here and (like me) are clueless as to what to try, the following places are HIGHLY recommended by my family!

Amore Donuts


In the mood for donuts?! Yum! In the mood for pizza?! YUM! YUM! Yes, they serve both! I was skeptical but both the pizza and donuts turned out VERY yummy. We picked up pizza for dinner and then grabbed a box of donuts to have for breakfast the next morning!

Hook’d Pier Bar & Grill


I was in the mood for fried shrimp and it was amazing!! They have a pretty good kids’ menu too, for picky kids that don’t want fish. And tacos and burgers for picky husbands that refuse to even try fish! Ahem.

Shane’s Rib Shack

The chicken wings were sssooooooo good! Hubs said I was humming! Ha! ( There are no pictures of this because I devoured them that fast!)

Pier Park


My family loved the outdoor mall! It was a bit hot, but that gave us a great excuse to duck into all the shops! This is where I found the Lilly Pulitzerstore and where Dave and Buster’s was! There also happens to be a Starbucks there if mama needs her fix! (You know I did!)

The Egg and I


Only serves breakfast and lunch but ssoo good! They had chorizo and eggs! Hubs got the best breakfast burrito I’ve ever seen! And the bacon was HUGE!

Deja’ Brew

We stopped at this local shop on our way back from breakfast and was not disappointed! The name is cute and the decor inside is cuter! Plus, they use coffee ice cubes so your iced coffee doesn’t get diluted!

Shipwreck Island


This was an AMAZING water park! It reminded me a little of Windsor Water Works and Dollywood Spash Country. And guys, THEY HAD A YELLOW SUBMARINE!! My 3 year old cried his heart out because he didn’t want to leave. I think it was the most fun he’d ever had. And there were plenty of slides for the big kids, too!

Guadalajara Grill

Hubs was CLEARLY a fan!

Oh. My. Goodness was this GOOD! Authentic Mexican food! My whole family LOVED it. They were busy and our take out order took a while, but it was ssoo worth it! Our order came with rice and beans for each of us, and chips and salsa. My husband also ordered churros and they were AMAZING!!

If you hit one of these places, let me know how you liked them!! Any other places we should try if we ever go back?
