We've recently returned from a beautiful long weekend in Panama City Beach, Florida. It's a great place to visit with lots to see and do and the endless sandy beaches are gorgeous. If you'd like to look into planning a beach vacation this summer, here's a little information on planning your trip and the hotel we chose. ‪#‎PCBPOV‬
