Panama City Beach, in Bay County, is a city of 12,018 (according to the 2010 census) on the Gulf of Mexico coast. Not to be mistaken for Panama City, Panama City Beach is actually a separate city in itself. Panama City Beach's slogan is "The World's Most Beautiful Beaches" due to the unique sugar-white sand which covers the beaches of northwest Florida.
Beach has been a popular vacation destination for quite some time. Panama City
Beach is also a very popular spring
break destination, sometimes
having been referred to as "The Spring Break Capital of the World”, due to 100,000+ college and high
school students who arrive during the months of March and April.
