Spend a day at the beach and find fun things to do in Panama City

Florida’s Panama City is famous for its white-sand beaches, but guests of the Country Inn & Suites can also find other things to do. Shipwreck Island Waterpark is only 10 miles from our hotel rooms and suites. Looking to experience the great outdoors? Go fishing or hiking in St. Andrews State Park, or play a round of golf in the nature preserve at Bay Point Resort. The Bear Creek Feline Center offers a unique opportunity to see Florida wildcats and other exotic felines up close and learn about the threats they face.
