Spring Break is coming up fast, and there’s no better place to enjoy it than at Panama City Beach. With the big annual Beach Bash, a non-stop party, the best music, and all the local attractions featuring special activities just for you, it’s hard not to have a great time during Spring Break. It is possible, however, to have an utterly awesome time if you follow some basic tips to help you enjoy your Panama City Spring Break even more.
Why Panama City for Spring Break?
Well, Panama City Beach has earned its title of Spring Break Capital of the World. The little beach town set out to welcome the college crowd when lots of other coast towns were putting up not-welcome signs, and local businesses really put out the welcome mat. When MTV hit PCB for Spring Break starting in 2006, it really put us on the map, and we’ve held that spot dearly ever since. Every March, we host the biggest and best beach party you’ll ever attend, with co-hosts like Coca Cola, Red Bull, Maxim, Sony, Pepsi and Trojan all coming to town to set up huge promotions. That’s why more than 2 million college kids from all over the world make PCB their destination of choice for Spring Break.
Do The Music Beach Bash
The Beach Bash Music Fest is arguably the single biggest daytime event during Spring Break. This year, the announced acts include Steve Aoki and Brett Eldredge, but there are still more TBA spots on the lineup than filled ones, and you never know who will show up. Past PCB Beach Bash alums include Florida Georgia Line, Cole Swindell, DVBBS and Kaskade. Rolling Stone calls the Beach Bash Music Fest “the biggest daytime beach party in the world” – so you def don’t want to miss it.
Enjoy the Beaches
With 27 miles of beachfront, there’s lots of beach to enjoy on PCB. The white sand beaches are among the most beautiful – and most active – in the world. Check out some of our favorite beachfront activities while you’re here – we recommend the oysters at Sharky’s and the margaritas at Harpoon Harry’s.
Don’t Post to Facebook Between Midnight and 6 A.M.
We totally stole this tip from our friends over at Spring Break Central because it’s so true. Seriously. Chances are that anything you’ll be tempted to post to Facebook (or Twitter, Instagram or – heaven forbid – LinkedIn) will come back to haunt you. Have a blast – and hide the evidence!
Whether this is your first Spring Break or your last, you’re guaranteed to have a great time, and we can help you commemorate all the memories. Just keep your eye out for the big, bright “Photo” shorts on our roaming beach photographers, or give us a call to set up an appointment to capture your Spring Break gang at their best.
