A Rare Prospect In Panama City, Florida

This time of year, Panama City, Florida becomes a hot spot for Spring Breakers throughout the Southeast United States.  Panama City boasts beautiful beaches, superb sunsets, and plenty of bars that don’t care to ID their patrons.  I am not trying to get any bar owners in trouble by writing this post, however.
