Review of Panama City, Florida

This was the worst mistake I've made
Star Rating - 6/12/2014
I moved here from Fort Myers, FL. The cost of living (utilities, food, amenities, and housing) are higher and the pay (on average) is lower. What happens then? This place becomes a black hole with no way out. You end up stuck because you can't save enough to leave. The schools suck (my daughter had NO HOMEWORK for the entire school year). I thought she was lying, but I checked and she wasn't. And the paper mill. I don't need the weather channel, I know when I smell that overwhelmingly sour warm garbage smell that it will rain within 24 - 48 hours. If you want a new start, and somewhere good for kids, DO NOT COME HERE! There's no diversity or activities... There's the beach, but you smell it before you see it and I wouldn't suggest making an attempt going there between the months of March and May because of Spring Break.
