Tons of Excitement

Living in Panama City Beach, Florida provides my life with daily excitement. As a twenty something, I moved here hoping to live life to the fullest and I have definitely been able to do so! There is literally always something to do here.

Of course, you can choose to go to the beach in your downtime, but there is so much more here. Housing surprisingly is affordable here and there are multiple options available for you. The job market is not the best, but with a little looking you can find something.

The best areas in Panama City, Florida are the small stores and cafes owned by the locals. The locals actually feed into the fun and exciting atmosphere. The downside here is that you honestly don’t meet many people that are long term residents. A lot of people are here for a week or two for vacation or spring break and then leave. This does make it hard to have people that you can depend on in the area.
