Oaks by the Bay – The kids will love to run through the moss covered trees to the boardwalk where they can walk out to the water. Search for sea life in the muddy pools when the tide is low. You might find hermit and horseshoe crabs. The four-headed palm tree will make everyone in the family laugh!
Junior Museum of Bay County – This children’s museum is over 40 years old! It has a fully stocked pretend grocery store, hands-on science exhibits, a reptile room and a nature boardwalk. There are small cottages from 1893 and 1900 set up to represent pioneer life. When we visited, there was a local middle school robotics club having a meeting and we were invited to stick around and see their robots in action.
Eden State Gardens – March is the perfect month to visit Eden State Gardens when the Camellias are in peak bloom. Wander through the nature trail and tour the Wesley House, a beautiful two story home complete with huge white columns and a wrap-around porch that is going to make you want to grab your sweet tea and a rocking chair.
Friday Fest – Beginning in March, Downtown Panama City is full of live music and food. See the vintage cars, grab something to eat from a street vendor, and listen to a live band.
