What Bert Has To Say About Panama City Metro Area

Panama City is one of the more popular beach cities in the Florida Panhandle. The area has large white-sand beaches, particularly to the northwest in Panama City Beach (a separate city). Panama City Beach is a spring-break destination with a substantial tourist-oriented infrastructure including amusement parks. Its 1950’s-style beach strip appearance reflects its mostly lower-middle class clientele. The beaches themselves and the water are very attractive and create a prime destination for watersports enthusiasts. Nearby ocean currents support abundant marine life, and fishing and diving are popular.
