When you’re on Spring Break, your daily schedule generally consists of doing two main things: hitting the beach during the daytime hours, and partying in the club at night. It’s a simple formula that seems to work, no matter which coastal destination you choose.
We’re not telling you that you need to stop doing what has defined the essence of Spring Break for the past half century. We just feel the need to shed some light on some of the “other stuff” you can do during Spring Break 2013 – to mix it up a bit (?). After all, you’re on vacation for a full week! You could be experiencing some of the things that make your chosen destination a unique place.
Panama City Beach is known to have some of the highest concentrations of bottle-nosed dolphins in the world – which makes swimming with the dolphins tours a very popular activity while on the emerald coast. And did you know that Panama City Beach is also regarded as the Shipwreck Capital of the South for its many underwater shipwreck discoveries? If you’re into diving, this may be a great way to explore a whole new world.
If under-water exploration isn’t your thing, there’s always above water – as in high above water in a helicopter. PCB private helicopter tours allow you to view the coast from a bird’s eye view. It’s a real thrill (and will give you some pretty amazing stomach butterflies), and best of all, it’s not very expensive, especially if you’re sharing the cost between two or three of your friends.
If heights aren’t your thing either, perhaps renting a Pontoon boat and cruising to Shell Island for an entire afternoon might be just the thing you’re into. You and your friends can coast through the emerald waters to find the perfect spot to anchor and just chill.
Then there are the things that aren’t so unique, but are nonetheless fun and memorable to experience. Parasailing over the open water is a rush. Zip-lining across the sandy beach from several stories high is a kick. And, yes, what would a vacation be without a little shopping at the local outlet mall. Touring from store to store can be quite fun when you’re visiting a mall you’ve never been to, even for those not-so-avid shop-til-you-droppers.
So, as you can see, there’s a lot of things one can do aside from beach bashing and club hopping. Obviously, the choice is yours on what to do, but some times it’s the “other” stuff we do that can make our Spring Break experience more memorable.
