the emerald coast a.k.a. the "redneck" rivera

panama city beach is a very popular beach town in northwest florida. panama city beach should not be confused with the town of panama city on the mainland. both of these two towns have a very different atmosphere. panama city beach is a crowded touist town while panama city is a historic old florida town with a more laid back attitude. panama city beach gets it's nickname "the redneck rivera" from the numbers of visitors from nearby alabama and georgia. in the spring of each year panama city is invaded by over 100,000 college students for spring break. panama city beach has a number of "mega" bars which cater to the college crowd. panama city beach is lined with high rise condos and hotels and has scores of bars and restaurants. panama city beach can be a very different town depending on the time of the year. in the summer panama city caters to families on vacation. in the spring the town is taken over by drunken college students. in the winter panama city is a very quiet beach town. depending on your interests consider the time of year to plan your visit. personally i like to visit panama city in the fall when the prices are lower and the summer crowds are gone.
