Rain, rain, go away! Rain doesn't mean your beach vacation is a bust - sometimes the best days at the beach are quiet, snuggling under a blanket kind of days.
Here are some easy and fun activities to enjoy your time at Mexico Beach - even in the rain.
1. Make a trip to Apalachicola and have a leisurely lunch at The Owl Cafe or one of the other terrific restaurants there. Pick up Oysterbones treats for your puppy and check out the fun shops in Apalach.
2. Pay homage to the man who invented air conditioning. Dr. John Gorrie was a family doctor in Apalachicola during the yellow fever epidemic. He wanted to find a way to keep his patients cool so he tried blowing air over ice blocks and it worked. This invention ultimately became modern day air conditioning. The small museum is interesting and will make you appreciate the cooling delight of a/c.
3. Go to the movies. There is a nice Regal theater in Panama City located on 23rd street and another at Pier Park. I recommend Wonder Woman. Wow! What a movie and fun for all ages.
4. While you're there, head to Pier Park for a fun shopping adventure.
5. Pull out the puzzles and board games. All of our units are equipped with some basics. If you need more, head to the little shops near 298th Street. They sell all kinds of puzzles and fun things.
6. Bake seafood themed cookies. Who doesn't want a crabby cookie?
7. Find seashells and color with markers for special mementos or Christmas tree decorations.
8. Read a book. Many of our units feature a variety of interesting up to date novels and classic favorites. Gulf Foods in Mexico Beach sells books and the Free Little Library in front of Caribbean Coffee has others.
9. Head over to Port St. Joe and check out No Name Books. They have everything!
10. Binge watch Netflix. Almost all of our condos have Netflix enabled tvs. Let us know if you need help.
10. Play in the rain. If it's not lightening out, the beach is still beautiful and hey, you won't even need sunscreen.
