They've been blasting off the cannon at Schooners every sunset for as many years as folks around here care to remember. The crowds roar in unison "10, 9, 8, 7." counting down to the precise moment that the sun dips below the horizon and the old cannon roars. It's the beach's official signal that one more beautiful day has ended, and the real fun is just beginning!
5121 Gulf Drive
Panama City Beach, FL 32408
They call this place "The Last Local Beach Club," because it is one of the last holdouts for the classic beach style... with danceworn wood floors and tin roof... a bar perched out right on the Gulf. The bands start early and by sunset, the dance floor is packed. Every sunset, someone from the crowd lights the fuse on the old cannon and everyone counts down to "blast off" just as the sun dips below the horizon. Schooners keeps the prices low, the beer ice cold and the seafood fresh. Schooners chefs challenge the finest in the country. Voted "Best Place for Live Music" and "Best Place to Take Friends from Out of Town!" Live music daily. Web site has great live cams and popular local bulletin board. If you're looking for the perfect souvenir of your trip to PC Beach, the "Last Local Beach Club" has it available on line!
