5 Reasons to Visit Panama City Beach in the Late Summer / Fall
Of all the 365 days in the year, not a single one is a bad day to visit Panama City Beach. But that doesn’t mean that some aren’t better than others… Here’s 5 reasons why the late Summer / Fall might just be the best time of the year to spend some time on the “World’s most beautiful beaches”.
1. Fall 2016 Bike Week!
Let’s get started with the most obvious reason of all… The Fall Motorcycle Rally. There might be no better reason to enjoy some “you” time, and escape from your routine for a long weekend. Less crowded than the Spring Rally and with cooler weather, the Fall Rally has been growing in attendance year after year. If you’ve been before then you already know how much fun it is, and just how much the entire beach transforms to cater to bikers. If you’ve never been before, then we bet you’ve probably heard about it from somebody who has!
2. Awesome Service!
With the Motorcycle Rally in full swing, everybody in the service industry steps up their game. Businesses want to create a great impression so that people will return the following rally (or the following year). Then there’s all the servers who are working for tips. They will go out of their way to make sure they do what they can to impress you. You can expect great service in Panama City Beach pretty much any time of the year, and anywhere you go anyway, but it does feel like people step up their game during special events.
3. More Live Music & Better Bands!
The Motorcycle Rally means awesome live music, and lots of it! It’s difficult to find a band that doesn’t play what you like. You’ll find everything from blues to bluegrass, and classic rock to country. To be honest, you’ll probably find them all in the same bar, on the same night if you stick in one place long enough! The reason that all the bands just feel more fun during the rally, is that bands love to play to an audience who’s really into them!
4. Restaurant Deals!
Everybody wants you to eat with them during the Rally. It’s a long weekend where there’s a whole lot of people all in town at one time, but a limited number of places to eat. The restaurants know this, and to try to make sure you eat at their place, they get competitive among one another, and offer different discounts and deals to get you through the door. So look out for some early bird specials, and make sure you show up hungry! With seafood restaurants, steakhouses, BBQ pits, pizza joints, burger bars and pretty much anything else you can imagine, if you come to Panama City Beach and leave hungry you did something wrong. Tip: Try the “Best Breakfast on the Beach” at Coconuts Restaurant, located across the street from the Sandpiper Beacon Beach Resort, and their World Famous Tiki Bar. You won’t be disappointed 😉
5. Saving Money!
So we might have saved the best reason of all until last… If you visit Panama City Beach during the late Summer / Fall you will save money. Even during a special event like the Motorcycle Rally, the time of the year is the biggest factor in the rates you will pay to stay. So you can enjoy a nice long weekend of fun and still pay lower rates than you’d expect to pay during the middle of the busy summer season. How is that for a best of both World’s situation? You get to enjoy all the fun and excitement of the rally, and know that you are paying less for a vacation to Panama City Beach too!
