Everything You Need To Know About Spring Break in Panama City

Are you one of the many Penn Staters looking forward to spring break in Panama City next week? Here’s everything you need to know:

Panama City is arguably the best spring break destination in the U.S. with over half a million college students attending each year. Clubs stay open until 4 a.m. and it’s home to Club LaVela, the largest night club in the country.

During the days, each school on break for the week has a flag representing them on the beach; thus making it easier to go find fellow Nittany Lions to rage with.

Dayglow is making a two-day stop on 3/5 and 3/6 in with shows starting each night at 7:30. Tickets are still available, click here.

Sharky’s World Famous Celebrity Beach Bash is on 3/7 from noon til 5 p.m. with appearances by MTV Real World’s Dunbar Merrill and DJ Unk. If you don’t know who DJ Unk is check this out and pay close attention right around the :50 mark. Roll Tide.

On 3/8 Hammerhead Fred’s Foam Party is set to go down, which is existentially a giant tent filled with people and foam. Here is their cheesy promotional video.

Collegiate Marketing Group partnered with both Coors Light and Miller Lite to provide free shuttle service for the week called “Ride the Bus on Us”. These shuttles will run from 7 p.m. – 2 a.m. daily to help make things that much easier for drunken students.

It is highly recommended to purchase a Panamaniac Club Card, which saves you money at five of the biggest clubs in PCB. The place I’m staying, The Grand Panama Resort, has this card included for free. I don’t know if I’m a quite a Panamaniac, but I’m down with free cover.
