Christmas shopping on Panama City Beach is an experience not to be missed. There is no running from store to store in the freezing ice and snow. On the “world’s most beautiful beaches,” we go at a bit of a slower pace. Don’t be surprised if you happen to witness random acts of kindness such as holding doors open for people, helping shoppers pick up their fallen gifts or just smiling at each other. The Florida panhandle is a place where southern charm meets Christmas spirit. For all of you hardcore shoppers, Panama City has some of the best Christmas and Black Friday shopping but minus the hundreds of thousands of pushing and shoving crowds. Best Buy, Panama City Mall, Walmart, Target, and Pier Park are some of the best places to find great deals for Black Friday.
