Panama City visitors and natives are never more than a hop, a skip, and a parasail away from aquatic amusement, thanks to Adventures at Sea’s more than 60 locations, most stationed behind Panama City Beach's hotels and condos. The staff rents out pontoon boats for trips to Shell Island and pulls up to six riders on inflatable banana boats with a speedy jet ski. Experienced crews captain charter fishing trips and give fishers everything they need to catch trophies such as king mackerel, red groupers, and Stanley Cups that got away. After action-packed days filled with sunny memories, visitors can rent a lounge chair and soak up the sunset.
Helen Back believes a meal should be about more than just food. That's why its menu serves up the right portions to enjoy while watching a golf game or lounging on an outdoor patio. Try a white-sauce pizza with pepperoni, mushrooms, and black olives or down a bowl of nachos covered in spicy meat and jalape?os, while washing down your meal with one of the frequent drink specials from the full bar. Weekly specials include free pizza for members of the military and motorcyclists, and the restaurant's connection to the community also extends to fundraising for local youth and the Special Ops Warrior Foundation.

Inside a polished, modern eating space, LeRoc Bistro serves up refined noshing options fashioned largely from locally sourced and organic ingredients. The breakfast menu hosts a slew of lighter bites such as yogurt parfait ($8) and rolled oats ($6), as well as more substantial morning fare such as a duval omelette made with spinach, chevre, and applewood-smoked bacon ($10). Lunching customers can browse the midday meal card and try a signature sandwich such as the pressed Tuscan: ciabatta bread full of pesto chicken, fresh mozzarella and sliced roma tomato ($10), or the slow roasted beef brisket served with chedder cheese and crispy onions on garlic toast ($8). Drop a Starbucks charge into your cup or consult the libations list and let wine or beer loosen up your day before stress forces the sun to set early.
On any given day, the bartenders at The Brass Tap run down a long line of taps?more than 60, in fact?to pull pours of craft brews. These selections rotate regularly, and guests can check out what's available by scanning the colorful chalkboard or hiring a private eye. Beyond that, the many bottled beers that stock the bar's fridges tip the beer list over the 200 mark. These brews pair with live music and a simple but satisfying menu that includes prime rib nachos, paninis, and pizzas made with a pretzel crust.
Geo's Pool and Pub blends the friendly competitiveness of a neighborhood pool hall with the good-natured revelry of an inviting bar. Ample elbowroom and the pleasing glow of overhanging lanterns ensconce felt-covered tables. These leisure surfaces welcome pool players to show off their skill at cutthroat and eight ball or to argue over the difference between billiards and flaming billiards. Warm weather invites crowds outside to sip frosty brews and tear into hearty burgers on the open-air deck, and regular live music and karaoke lends a raucous soundtrack to parties and nights out.
