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.

The weather is so perfect right now! Blue Sky, sunshine, warm temps in the day and cool at night. If you only visit Panama City Beach in the Summer you are really missing out! I know I have said this before, but it is so true! The water is so clear, the beach is empty, the seafood is great and the restaurants are not crowded.
Give Venuture Out a try in the Fall and come see what you have been missing!
If you are still undecided about Thanksgiving, we have availability and there are lots of restaurants open with special menues. See our Facebook page or previous blog post with a list.
Panama City Beach Fall Events 2017
Every year Panama City Beach is host to a variety of Autumn events. They range from the family friendly Pirates of the High Seas Festival to the Bloody Mary and Music Festival. The weather is still warm during the day and mild in the evenings. Autumn is also the best time for less crowded restaurants. It’s a great time to get your Christmas shopping done too. Most of the shops have big sales on their summer clothes making it a great time to stock up for next year!
This year Venture Out Vacations is offering 10% off the nightly rate in select properties booked for one of the following festivals. Just show us your “proof” of attendance and we will take 10% off the nightly rate (cleaning fees and resort registration is not discounted).

Other food trucks coming soon.. Every Wednesday and Thursday from noon until 2 the Kona Ice truck will be here. (weather permitting). Movie Monday……have you made your reservation yet?
Memorial Day weekend was another great success here in Venture Out. The resort had a food truck here at the front pool on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. The BBQ truck was a huge hit on Saturday and Sunday and Wrap it Up had a great selection and did well on Monday. Don’t be surprised if they are not here a few other weekends this Summer. They may even show up on Movie Monday.
Michelle and Roni were set up outside of the office with our pop up tent giving out water and Buff’s (like the ones that they wear on Survivor). They were also taking pictures with our Instagram fame. It was a lot of fun! If you got one of the buffs make sure to go to our facebook page and post a picture wearing it, the picture with the most “likes” will win $40.00 is Patches Bucks. There was a contest this weekend also, we had 2 winners for patches bucks.
