Panama City Beach, Florida Attractions

Unusual landmarks, museums, roadside attractions, and hidden wonders in Panama City Beach and the surrounding area. Known as the "Redneck Riviera," its main drag becomes a parking lot of fun-seekers on summer weekends (We've been trapped there). Classic mini-golf, junk food, gift shops. For the full redneck experience, drive outside town to the Possum Monument.
