The beaches are typically what draw people to Panama City, but there is much more to this city. You can enjoy a host of indoor activities when it is rainy or cool, and outdoor activities abound for the beautiful, sunny days. Take the time to plan your visit carefully since there might be days that are rainy or too hot. But whatever the weather, you're sure to enjoy Panama City.
Panama City’s Pier Park is a shopping center that houses a vast array of stores and many restaurants and food stalls. This colorful outdoor venue is best visited when the weather is pleasant enough to venture from store to store. You can also enjoy laser tag, live music, a Grand IMAX theater, and a host of special events. From October through the end of the year, there's a lot going on in Panama City. The Brew and Boo Beer Festival happens in October, and there is a safe trick-or-treat Mall-O-Ween event for children. The Shrimp, Crab & Oyster Festival is in November, and December features a Christmas celebration complete with photos with Santa.
