Things to Do for Families w/ Kids

We are taking our 5-yr old and 4-yr old to PCB in mid-May. This will be our first family vacation in a number of years (since the kids were babies), so we are all pretty excited :) I'm looking for suggestions for the best activities / places to see for families with young kiddies. Thanks!

There are lots of fun family activities in PCB, when we were there we played putt-putt golf, pirate cruise (your kids will LOVE this), rode go-carts, lots of swimming, at Pier Park there were a few little carnival type rides (kinda pricey though), sea screamer was a blast and of course that beautiful beach, hope this gives you some ideas.

Your kids will love the pirate ship! They have a afternoon cruise and a evening cruise. We did the evening cruise and it was great. They also have their own website so you can check it out. St. Andrews Park and Shell Island are also some things we did with out grandchildren. They liked snorkling in the jetties. Gulf World has a lot of animals and stuff. Have fun!

St. Andrews State Park and Shell Island are great suggestions. Whenever we go to PCB with the little ones, we make sure to visit both places. There are plenty of other places for kids as well. On Thomas Drive and Front Beach Road, there are places for putt-putt golf, always a fun time for the kiddos. The pirate ship is also a good time for kids. My youngest niece would be happiest if we never left the beach though!!! :)

Have fun!

I agree with the other posters...the Pirate Ship is the best thing you can take your kids on. They will love it and talk about it for years to come. Check out their website,,,FUN FUN FUN :)
