Panama City Beach, Florida: “The World’s Most Beautiful Beaches”
Every year in March and April, more than 100,000 college and high-school students come to Panama City Beach’s sugar-white sand beaches for Spring Break. Though the kids only stay for a week, fun in the sun on Florida’s Gulf Coast lasts throughout the summer. While the city’s slogan—“The World’s Most Beautiful Beaches”—may seem a little boastful, TripAdvisor confirmed their beauty when it selected the town as the #3 beach in America in 2011.
Some of the best beaches in town can be found at St. Andrews State Park. The park has two fishing piers, a jetty, and a boat ramp, plus nature trails for bird watching. Elsewhere in town, you can arrange a scuba-diving trip to explore the area’s dozens of natural and artificial reefs.
