    What do you like about Panama City? Close to the beach but most of the beaches in Panama City Beach are flat due to over construction, dirty due to over crowding and nothing compared to other areas within 30 miles in the way of beauty.
    What do you dislike about Panama City? Small town mentality, closed minded, unwelcoming to young professionals, full of "good 'ol boys" and terrible job market.
    What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in? Downtown and St. Andrews both have Marinas with events, music and some cute shops but it gets old when it is always the same people, bands playing, etc...
    How expensive is it? Depends, either bottom of the barrel cheap/ghetto or big money/mansions on the bay. There are very few affordable "nice" homes here for singles or small families. The landlords are TERRIBLE. Watch yourself when you sign a lease.
    Is it safe? Some parts are very quiet and safe and some are really scary looking. I don't know how unsafe the lower income neighborhoods are but they don't look safe. I have heard of shootings happening now and again but I don't have a clear idea of the crime rates here compared to population. Seems high due to poverty.
    How is the weather? Pretty nice weather. Doesn't get too cold in the winter.
    Additional thoughts? Don't move here unless you have to. I am out of here and back to other areas close by as soon as my lease is up. You can do better, especially if you are a degreed young professional.
