Panama City Beach sees record tourism numbers in March

PANAMA Town BEACH — Soon after achieving a current milestone, Dan Rowe, president and CEO of Check out Panama Metropolis Beach, said the town is without having a doubt an “all-American beach town.”

According to Rowe, March of this yr was the busiest March in the tourism historical past of Panama Metropolis Seaside, generating just about $2.9 million in tourism growth tax earnings. That is about $400,000 extra than March 2021, which previously held the title. 

It must be pointed out that 2021 was the Beach’s busiest yr at any time, bringing in about $36.75 million in tourism tax collections. 

Panama City Beach is flooded with tourists March 17. March 2022 was the busiest March in the tourism history of Panama City Beach, generating almost $2.9 million in tourism development tax revenue.

“This 12 months, we understood that we have been going to maintain on to most of the business we obtained last 12 months simply because the fundamentals of our neighborhood are potent, (but) we did not know if we would exceed past year’s (quantities) because we were being anticipating a industry correction (after the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020),” Rowe reported. “We have been thrilled that the success of March came in wherever they had been.

“… It truly goes to display the great importance of that good quality beach front experience in people’s life.”

The city also was able to break the document without the need of relying on crowds of spring breakers to strengthen its economy in March — something PCB counted on before 2015, when massive crowds of party hungry, faculty-aged vacationers would flock to the place each 12 months.

PCB much tamer:But police continue to battling Spring Split seashore booze. This is the scoop.
