Panama City – Things to do with your Team

When you visit Panama City and the neighboring resort city of Panama City Beach to the west with your team, you can expect to enjoy gorgeous weather, white sand beaches, unforgettable oceanfront vistas, and all of the fun attractions you’d expect to find in such a popular beachside tourist destination. Can it get any better than that? Probably not, but you can certainly try to make your team’s visit to the area even more memorable by visiting as many of the fun things to see and do there whenever you’ve got some free time.


Man in the Sea Museum

Take your team to the Man in the Sea Museum for an aquatic adventure unlike any other. Since its founding in 1982, the Man in the Sea Museum has set out to showcase the progress of underwater technology, from the dawn of diving to the most modern underwater exploratory vessels. There you and your team can climb through a submarine, learn about different diving helmets used throughout history, see SEALAB I, an experimental underwater habitat developed by the United States Navy in the 1960s, and so much more. While much of the world’s vast ocean remains a mystery still uncharted by man, a wealth of the technology that mankind has used to study it is on full display at this unique, 5,000-square-foot facility. 17314 Panama City Beach Pkwy, Panama City, FL 32413


Oaks by the Bay Park

Oaks by the Bay Park, located in the old waterfront village of St. Andrews along the shores of St. Andrews Bay, is the newest addition to the city’s waterfront parks. This charming five acre park is the perfect place for you and your team to relax in peace and quiet under the shade of ancient oak trees, including The Sentry, which is thought to be more than 250 years old. It’s also home to a very unique and perhaps the world’s only four-headed palm tree. Other notable features include a boardwalk that leads out to the bay, a gazebo, and an observational platform with benches for those who like to watch sailboats as they pass by. Whether you pack a picnic lunch or just plan to go for a stroll with everyone, you won’t find any better place to do so than Oaks by the Bay Park. 2715 W 10th St, Panama City, FL 32401


Panama City Beach

Panama City - Things to do with your Team - Travel - Hotels4TeamsIf your team has a day off, treat them to a day of fun in the sun at the 27 miles of white sand beaches that line nearby Panama City Beach. Although Panama City Beach is home to a multitude of beaches, each offering a distinct, yet equally pleasurable experience, one iconic feature remains a constant: the crystalline sand that shimmers and sparkles in the bright Florida sun. The sand in Panama City Beach is so sugar-white and soft that you’d never guess that most of it comes from the massive amounts of quartz crystals washed down from the Appalachian Mountains into the Gulf of Mexico. All of those crystals were ground down to a fine grain and were bleached by the sun before being deposited onto picturesque beaches that looks as if they were pulled straight out of a postcard. No beach city postcard would be complete without a beautiful ocean, which is exactly what you can expect to find in Panama City Beach as well. The turquoise waters of Panama City Beach are famous with fishermen and scuba divers who enjoy the benefits of dozens artificial reefs located offshore, and since the coastline angles slightly toward the west, visitors to Panama City Beach can watch the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico every day of the year.

St. Andrews State Park

If you’re wondering what beach in particular to visit with your team out of the 27 miles of beaches that line the Panama Beach City coastline, you really can’t do much better than St. Andrews State Park. At this former military reservation you’ll not only find a beautiful one-and-a-half mile-long beach named “The World’s Best Beach” by Travel Magazine in 1995 but also one of the most popular and most visited state parks in the state of Florida. St. Andrews State Park is situated on a peninsula at the far eastern edge of Panama City Beach. Bordered by the Gulf of Mexico to the south, the St. Andrews Pass to the east, and the Grand Lagoon to the north, you’re never far from a relaxing sea breeze or the chance to get a little sand between your toes as your group explores the shoreline at St. Andrews State Park. 4607 State Park Ln, Panama City, FL 32408

Coconut Creek Family Fun Park

For adventure and fun for you and the whole team, Coconut Creek Family Fun Park is one of the best places to visit in Panama City Beach. Open year-round, Coconut Creek Family Fun Park is home to two can’t-miss attractions: Coconut Creek Mini-Golf and Gran Maze. Coconut Creek Golf consists of two scenic 18-hole mini-golf courses that intertwine through Coconut Creek Family Fun Park’s spacious property. Both courses feature waterfalls, bridges, and life-size animal statues that provide the perfect complement to the park’s warm tropical setting.

The park’s other attraction, Gran Maze, is a giant, human-sized, outdoor maze that is roughly the size of a football field. It is themed after Captain James Cook, a famed explorer who sailed with the Royal Navy and is credited with the discovery of many South Pacific islands. You and your team will have your own navigational skills put to the test as you traverse the Gran Maze, finding the four checkpoints before you exit. The maze’s routing is changed frequently so even if you’ve been to Coconut Creek Family Fun Park before, the Gran Maze will be just as challenging as it was when you first visited. Whether you and your team choose to visit both of Coconut Creek Family Fun Park’s attractions or just one, you’re all in for a whale of a fun time! 9807 Front Beach Rd, Panama City Beach, FL 32407
