Panama City Beach became famous for its 27 miles of white-sand beach, and then infamous for its spring break parties for college students, and is now rebounding as a family destination along Florida's Panhandle. The boost followed the opening of the city's international airport, making it easier for families outside of driving distance to enjoy the emerald green waters that align the shoreline.
