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.
Why not spend your Thanksgiving in Panama City Beach and Venture Out? There are several restaurants open with special menus. Stay here in Venture Out with us at Venture Out Vacations and let them do all of the cooking and cleaning. OR if you love to cook your own Thanksgiving (like I do), our rentals all have great kitchens! Call us 850-230-0676 today to see what we have available.

The great people over at Coastal Coaches have put together some Casino Trips for Winter Guest. Check them out and see if one will work for you. The coaches are nice and clean and comfy. The owners live here in Venture Out and are fun, good folks!
“Where is a good place to eat here?” This is a question the ladies in the main Venture Out office get all the time. So I asked them and compiled a list of their favorites as well as mine and Marks. Do you have a favorite? List in the comments.
