Mention spring break to the average Floridian and the first thing you’ll hear of is Panama City Beach. A sandy stretch along Florida’s famed Emerald Coast, Panama City Beach has emerged in recent years as the go-to destination for spring break. Be it families or college students, there’s plenty of things to do in Panama City Beach; from the rare natural phenomenon of dune lakes to festivals for everything, and from music to lobsters.
When spring fades and summer ends, the crowds may leave Panama City Beach for other retreats, but this beachside town still has its share of charms in its off periods. Check out these six Airbnbs in Panama City Beach, FL for every season.
Beaches may be the area’s main attraction, but Panama City Beach is also home to another natural wonder: coastal dune lakes. In fact, Florida is one of the only places in the world where these lakes occur naturally. Experience this freshwater phenomenon with this charming cottage, located by the banks of Florida’s largest dune lake, Lake Powell. Step into an ambiance of ‘shabby chic’ within the house’s interior, lined with worn wood paneling and wooden furnishings. Lounge on the sofa, or dine at the elegant glass-topped table. An amber adventure with cerulean calm, this bold harmony awaits in the master bedroom. Rest upon the king-sized bed as you drift off into sweet dreams and anticipate the morning beyond. A smaller resting room, the emerald hues of the guest bedroom complement the forest outdoors. One of the best things to do in Lake Powell is fish. With its wide variety of game, why not reel in your catch and prepare a home-cooked meal in this ebony-lined kitchen? Making it one of the most sought-after vacation rentals in Panama City Beach is its wooden balcony that offers a great view of the forest and lake. To get to the dock, descend the stairs and explore the area! If you wish to travel to other parts of Panama City Beach, drive three minutes to Camp Helen State Park, or six minutes to Rosemary Beach.

Fall is when the crowds begin to die down at Panama City Beach, but little do many know of the area’s diverse festivals. From the Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam to Schooners’ Annual LobsterFest, there’s something for everyone when it comes to festivities! Stay close to the celebrations with this beach house in Panama City Beach, just a stone’s throw from the tourist hotspot of Pier Park, which is one of the fun things to do besides visiting the beach in the city. A low-rise property with a panoramic beach view, this simple, single-story bungalow is a rarity in the area. The interior is an open-concept living space. Modern, spacious, and relaxing, it’s also great for families to watch over young ones! What’s cooking? Pop down to a nearby shopping mall, Pier Park Mall – 10 minutes away by foot – and grab some ingredients for a delicious home-cooked meal, prepared in this very kitchen. You can even watch the chef work their magic from one of the bar chairs. With off-white walls and carpeted floors, this cozy living room brings the brightness of the beach to you. On a lazy day, why not lounge on the L-shaped sofa, or kick back with some cable TV? The mellow warmth of the living room extends to this bedroom, just one of the house’s three. Allow carpeted floors, and this spacious, king-sized bed to lull you into sweet dreams during your stay. Ready for the beach? Head out the back door onto this deck, where a path through some shrubs leads to what you’ve been waiting for – sugary sands, crystal waters, and, by sunset, magnificent views. Be careful to take note of weather conditions in the fall; while temperatures are still high enough for a dip in the ocean, hurricane season also peaks at this time. Nevertheless, you can expect to enjoy less rain and more agreeable weather conditions.

Ah, spring, the busiest season for Panama City Beach, when boisterous students and calamitous party-goers retreat to the place for spring break. You’re going to want to stay somewhere with the serene sea at your doorstep, shops a stone’s throw away, and, above all, some peace and quiet.

Notice the common space as you enter. With a harmony of blue walls and wood furnishings, the place stimulates reminiscence of your holiday’s aquatic adventures. The tranquility extends to the patio. Doesn’t this view relax you? Beyond the modest community pool, Lullwater Lake awaits; flora, fauna, and a flawless surface, magnificent beneath the tropical sun. Here’s your sanctuary for your stay: a darkened space of more marine shades to relax your mood further following a long, sunny day. With a queen-sized bed, it enjoys access to the first floor’s shared bathroom. For more spacious sleeping options, opt instead for the residence’s master bedroom.
