Recently, Dave and I were excited to be given the opportunity to go on a press trip to Panama City Beach, Florida where flights, accommodations, meals, and activities were provided. It was an amazing trip where we had the chance to learn about all the family friendly options the area has to offer including the city’s fun New Year’s Eve celebration where 10,000 beach balls dropped on top of a crowd filled with wide-eyed and excited children. It was amazing! Keep an eye out for posts covering this event as well as other area attractions.
While in Panama City Beach, accommodations were provided by Laketown Wharf Resort.
As soon as we opened the door to our two bedroom condo we were in awe of the spaciousness, the impressive amenities, the luxurious decor, and the dazzling view.
I honestly can’t say enough about how much we adored the large balcony and gorgeous views of the Gulf. Even though it was unusually chilly during our trip due to the impending Polar Vortex crossing the country, we sat out on the balcony as often as possible. Not only did we enjoy the view but we liked it’s size. If Kora & Logan had come with us there would have been plenty of room for all of us plus extra to spare. I also liked that there were doors for the balcony both off the living room and master bedroom.
We loved the Master Bedroom & it’s view from bed as well. It was amazing to wake up every morning, pull back the curtain, and look out at the water, sky, and clouds. It was memorable and the beauty made us feel like we had truly escaped from the every day.
Here’s a look at some of our other favorite features: a full size elegant kitchen, large living room with plenty of seating, good size second bedroom, fun kids bunk beds, lovely master bath with whirlpool tub, 2nd bath, washer & dryer, and even cute towel animals and paper flowers.
I recorded a video tour of our room so you could really get a good feel for all it has to offer:
We were excited to see that Laketown Wharf Resort also has 5 pools including a zero entry pool, a kid’s pool, a secluded island pool, and a 10th floor rooftop pool.
There’s also a putting green, a 52,000 square foot lakefront boardwalk, a fitness center, covered parking, and a children’s playground.
We highly recommend Laketown Wharf Resort. It’s location is fantastic, the condos are beautiful, spacious, and offer incredible views, and the prices are reasonable. We could have easily brought along Kora & Logan as well as my parents to stay at the resort and we still would have had plenty of room. The resort is dog friendly too, so Yoshi could have come along as well! We are so excited about our stay there that we are already in talks with my parents to plan a trip so we can show them and the kids the resort as well as everything Panama City Beach has for families.
On that note, stay tuned for my upcoming series of posts covering our favorite area attractions and activities for families. With more than 27 miles of beaches and an average of 320 days of sunshine annually, there really is something for everyone in Panama City Beach, Florida.
Wow, what a great trip. Your photos look amazing. I’d love to take my family on a trip like this someday.

Sounds like you had a nice place to stay. The past few days here in Panama City we have been under freeze warnings and got quite cold here. Glad you were not here this week! It will be 70 again here this weekend! Loved your review.
