We've toy stores. We've clothing stores for men, for women, for children. And the activities that we have on the property are definitely for family as well as just that couple that wants to get away.

We just love it. Trader Thomas Gibson shows this is one of the local favorites. You're gonna meet very special characters in here aside from the beautiful beach souvenirs. It feels like I just walked in into a sunken treasure because the little presents, treasures you have here are truly unique. Well, this is I call the Nautical Gift Shop. There's a lot of things for everybody in here. We try to have things for children. We do books and ________. We have shells for collectors. I have shelves that these people wanna use for decorating.

And what better place to do it than the Hofbrau Beer Garden. You have the opportunity to create a cultural experience for folks when they come to visit Pier Park. Everything here is as authentic as it can be. We import our beer direct from Munich. Even some of the things that are difficult to make like the pretzels. We bring those in from Munich as well. Panama City Beach is so much more than a spring break destination as you have been able to see a little bit by Pier Park. You could spend your day with your family at the beach. You could go shopping. You could go to the Marine Parks. There really is something for everyone. You could check out the animal events like the Wine Festival, Crab Races, Mardi Gras in February. It really has great activities for everyone. AS for me, I'm heading back to the hotel to recharge a little bit so I can come back in the evening and take it all in.
