December Events in Panama City Beach

Posted by in events,News | December 4, 2017

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 and Margaritaville are for sure open on Christmas Day, I will post more as I find them.

Harpoon Harry’s  Christmas info is on the facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/HarpoonHarrysPCB/

Venture Out Beach November 15, 2017

Posted by in events,News | November 15, 2017

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.

And the Winner is……….

Venture Out Lagoon Pool

Posted by in News | September 26, 2017

The Lagoon pool bath house renovation is still going. They had some logistical issues with the power that are now resolved. They’re working on the plumbing this afternoon and the “pool pit” (filter/heater, etc) is being put in this week. Once these things are complete the building should go up pretty fast. The goal is to have it complete before Thanksgiving.

The playground, basketball court, pavilion and picnic area are all still available for use. The resort added new benches on the pier and it is ready for fishing or just relaxing and watching the boats and birds.
