School’s Out For Summer!
As the end of the school year approaches kids are filled with excitement and longing to begin lazy days and fun adventures. Being a parent myself I know what it is like being cooped up inside with antsy children. We’ve created a list of fun stuff to do to make it easier for you to get out and have some fun together.
Frank Brown Park kiddie pool has a 5,000 square foot area. It’s full of slides, splash and spray features, and shallow areas for little ones. There is a large water slide for the bigger kids and special designated times for those under 5. Located at 16200 Panama City Beach Parkway, PCB, FL.
Barefoot on the Beach is a casual café on the Gulf of Mexico. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. While dining or enjoying a drink at the open-air bar, you and the kids can take a dip in the beach front pool available for customers only. Located at 11073 Front Beach Rd. PCB, FL.
