December is a slower pace here in Panama City Beach. Don’t let that stop you from visiting, PCB is fast becoming a year round destination. There are several events happening and the weather is milder than most of the rest of the country. A long winter walk on the beach can be very therapeutic!
Why not try Christmas at the beach for a nice change of pace? Downtown Panama City and St Andrews as well as Pier Park are all decked out with lights and decorations. Santa is at the Mall and Pier Park, many restaurants are still open ( a few are even open on Christmas Day).
Harpoon Harry’s Christmas info is on the facebook page: https://www.facebook.
