Park) is pet-friendly, and many

Pier Park in Panama
City Beach, the outdoor shopping
mall, is also pet-friendly. Ron Jon’s Surf Shop allows dogs
inside that can be carried. Otherwise, dogs are not allowed
inside stores or restaurants, but are allowed to stroll the
streets on leashes with their owners.
Please remember to clean up after your dogs! Waste bags are
available for public use at all of the above locations. And
check with your pet-friendly accommodations about other places
to take your furry family members.
As mentioned above, Doggie Beach has
rules, of course, that must be followed if we are to retain this
wonderful access. They include staying within the dog beach
boundary, ALWAYS picking up after your dog, and using a leash.

rules that you can carry with you!
