My son has wanted to swim with the dolphins for years. I chose this open water version and we weren’t disappointed. This was an awesome experience. We saw lots of dolphins in their natural habitat. Lots of places advertise dolphin experiences but this one delivers....MoreThank you guys. We appreciate your review very much.

Kaleidoscope Theatre

Reviewed By John S - Atlanta, Georgia

Saw Mark Twain's "Is He Dead" Saturday night. Only one of the actors was saying his lines with professional voice and emotion. Rest were saying as if they were still memorizing them from the script. Lots of laughs, if the lines were delivered correctly AND you could hear them. We sat mid-way up and seldom could hear most of the lines. We have watched and supported community theaters in many locals. Appreciate the effort and time that is spent putting on a production. This was not a good one. Left at intermission.

Worth the tour getting to experience what life was like on a cargo ship. Crew are interesting to meet and talk with. Plenty of plaques to read inside the vessel. At least go and have fun making photos while the ship is at port - comes once a year.

Americana Cafe Sundays

Reviewed By Earthlaughter - Panama City, Florida

I can't understand why this isn't overrun by people, because it is inexpensive (they ask for a $5 donation per person), informal, fun, and always full of surprises. Mostly traveling musicians perform, but sometimes locals are featured. Usually, the music is excellent, sometimes outstanding, sometimes...MoreMaybe it's a blessing not to be "too busy"?? We want people who want great music in a Listening Room environment and that's what we get. So happy you're a part of the community. Love, Maggie

Panama City Beach Winery

Located across the street from the magnificent beach!!! We are in the corner of the St. Thomas Square shopping area on Joan Avenue and Thomas Drive (facing Joan Avenue). We offer 100% real fruit wines. Some of our wines are made with over 9 pounds of fruit in one bottle! No reservation required for a complimentary wine tasting. If you have a large group or special celebration, call us and we will be happy to arrange a private after-hours tasting.

Reviewed By mp0ssa - Fort Benning, Georgia

Went with my better half completely curious about the idea that these wines are made of fruits other than grapes.

First, the service is amazing. They were not pushing us to buy anything. Just delighted us and educated us on how they make their wines, gave us a tasting, and were all about explaining the process.

Second, the locale is well-located, is whimsical and pretty, and spacious enough to do up to (i THINK) 7 tastings at the bar, then some more tables for extras. That is a plus.

Third. THE WINE!!!! OMG! Who ever heard of key lime wine? Well, it kicks behind. It is delicious! It is sweet, then tart, then kicks you, then cleanses your palate. Amazing.

We took the Key Lime wine home, a King Kiwi wine, and a Sangria that begged to be drank in VERY LARGE glasses.

I am definitely going back there and I plan to stay for a while, too ;)

St. Andrews State Park

Reviewed By McTraveler614 - Columbus, Ohio

This was my family's second consecutive Spring Break camping trip to St. Andrew's State park. I won't rehash everything from my last review, but suffice it to say that the park was just as great as last year.

I continue to be impressed with the value of this park, when you consider all that it offers -- water-front camping, water and electric hook-ups, well-kept and clean shower houses, boat ramp, boat rentals, two fishing piers, pristine beaches, bike and golf cart rentals, two great stores, hiking trails, amazing wildlife... the list goes on and on.

Our only disappointment this year was the condition of the gulf-side beach near the jetties. There has been major erosion to this beach to the point where you have to descend down a very steep 10-12 foot slope to get to the water. The actual usable area of the beach is very narrow (less than 20 feet) between the water's edge and the dunes. So on a crowded day, it's difficult to find an open spot to set up. The "kiddie pool" side is not quite as bad, but there is also a pretty steep slope on that side to get to the water too. This was a minor inconvenience for us, because it meant dragging our beach cart up and down a steep hill. But for handicapped people, I assume both sides of the beach by the jetties are nearly inaccessible. I know there's not a lot that can be done to prevent erosion from hurricanes and other storms, but I'd love to see the State do some work to build these beaches back up.

For those who do need more "accessible" beach access, the conditions near the gulf-side pier appeared to be better with a more gradual slope and wider stretches of open sand. We just prefer to be near the jetties for fishing, snorkeling, etc.

The other thing I wanted to mention is that this park is planning to do some work on the campground starting in 2019 to add sewer lines and build up areas that typically flood. I'd like to go on record as saying I really hope they don't mess up the natural feel of this campground in order to cater to high-rollers with giant RVs. If you want full-hookup camping with pull-through sites and all the conveniences of home, Florida has a million private RV campgrounds that cater to your needs. What makes St. Andrews State Park great is that it still feels natural -- and there are plenty of sites that are perfect for tents and small pop-up campers. Please don't pave over paradise to put in a parking lot. That would be a true tragedy.

Oaks by the Bay Park

Reviewed By avery59 - Newnan Ga

This small park is packed full of atmosphere. It is very reminiscent of Savannah, Ga. The four headed palm, the cauldron from the civil war and the Sentry tree are worth the visit. We loved the boardwalk down to the bay. Be careful collecting shells on the bay shoreline. My husband learned that lesson. By the end of the day the two "shells" had crawled all over our van. Almost all of the shells on the beach have hermit crabs. We had to make a trip back to take them home. Well worth the time to unwind and get the other beach experience.
