Panama City Beach has been in the news a lot lately. The beach here one of the most beautiful in the country if not the world, so with that everyone wants to come here. The media likes to tell you about the negative and leave out all of the positive. Yes Spring Breakers get out of hand from time to time and yes this year was worse than previous. Not so much worse though. I believe the bad publicity from last year was an invitation to the bad element that came down. Kids today are worse than they were years ago too. All that being said, Venture Out and Panama City Beach is still a great place to bring your families.
We do not rent to under 25 year olds. Each property in Venture Out is individually owned. There is 24 hour security at the gate and a patrol guard. Venture Out has about 200 year round residence (they help keep an eye out also). There are many great restaurants and shops close by. You can get to Back Beach or Panama City Beach Parkway pretty easily. Take that to get to Pier Park to go shopping or to one of their restaurants. It is easy to avoid the area of the beach where the Spring Breakers are and not feel like you are not able to experience everything that PCB has to offer. Stay away from the Super Clubs (unless that’s your thing). There are great places for mini golf (my personal favorite is Pirates Island), Wonder Works, Coconut Creek, Ripley’s, Race City etc. All of these are far enough away from the Clubs.
If you are thinking of bringing your family to PCB do not let the Media scare you away. Venture Out has always been and always will be a family friendly and fun resort. Panama City Beach is waiting on you, come on down and show the world that your favorite vacation spot is still a great place to be!
