Panama City Beach Lists Calendar of Sports-Cations for Athletes
7 Jun, 2016
Long known for its sugar white sand beaches along the emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico, Panama City Beach is also recognized by international sporting event planners as a great destination for everything from baseball to swim meets. With close to 320 days of sunshine per year and an annual temperature of 74 degrees, this beachside destination is perfect for family vacations centered on sports.
Many activities take place at Frank Brown Park, which is currently equipped with nine baseball and softball diamonds, three soccer fields, four multi-purpose football fields, four tennis courts, walking trails, indoor gymnasium and an aquatic center featuring a temperature-controlled Olympic-size pool. As Frank Brown Park approaches the finish line of a $4 million major renovation (to be completed in June of this year), Panama City Beach continues to host a wide variety of competitions, races, and tournaments during the spring and summer months.
“Our world-class beaches are a natural draw for families and those looking for a great beach vacation,” says Visit Panama City Beach President and CEO Dan Rowe. “Now, more and more athletes are choosing to compete in paradise, and stay for a vacation.”
