Panama City Beach in Florida

Panama City Beach is a resort town located in Bay County, Florida, on coast of the gulf of mexico. The beaches in this city are often referred to under the slogan "the most beautiful beaches in the world". We will tell about the city in more detail in this article.

The history of Panama City Beach begins from the moment when its first inhabitants arrived here 13,000 years ago during the last ice age. The ancient midden shell (an archaeological monument consisting mainly of shell mollusks) in oaks is a rare landmark that has been preserved from that time.

Many of the region’s first European guests were pirates, awaiting attacks on Spanish galleons filled with wealth. One of these giant galleons, along with a huge cannon, was somehow discovered under a local motel in the early 1960s. Many other wrecks lie beneath the Gulf of St. Andrews, which is considered the capital of shipwrecks in the world to this day.

In this era, Panama City remained sparsely populated for about two centuries, until the Cherokee and Creek tribes arrived to avoid forced relocation to the West. Georgia's retired governor and his wife were among the first permanent settlers in the area, and their family home later became a popular hotel.

Seminoles and white settlers formed the majority of the local population by the 1830s, and later the area began to attract tourists interested in fishing in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. It is said that salt mined in the bay successfully treated a number of diseases and was supplied to Confederation troops during the American Civil War.

After the American Civil War, the city again became a popular place for shipbuilding, fishing and tourism. Panama City in 1927 joined the three neighboring cities, expanding the territory. The city became a famous port during the Second World War.

Today, Panama City Beach welcomes tourists, and the city itself functions as the cultural, business and administrative center of Bay County.
