One tank trip: Panama City Beach

Cov­ing­ton through the cam­era

When it comes to my yearly trip to a nearby beach, I pre­fer PCB (Panama City Beach, Fla.). I avoid the early-to-mid­sum­mer and wait till the ap­proach of fall to plan my visit. The weather is still very warm and the va­ca­tion crowds have thinned out a bit.

Panama City Beach is in Florida’s Bay County, on the Gulf of Mex­ico. It’s a pop­u­lar va­ca­tion desti- na­tion, es­pe­cially among South­ern­ers.

Af­ter La­bor Day, this place is as close to par­adise as you can get with­out a pass­port. The beaches are beau­ti­ful, and there are many great places to visit, in­clud­ing restau­rants, gift shops, board­walks and a beau­ti­ful state park.

Panama City Beach is the per­fect place for a late sum­mer/early fall week­end get­away.
