Is late August a good time to visit Panama City Beach?

That is when we are visiting and it seems like a good time as some kids are back in school. Also after looking at alot of calendars for availability for condos in August it seems from about Aug 13 and on there is plenty of availability. Im assuming from that it would be a good time to go.

Yes. Actually looking at rates, the end of August is when the rates drop pretty drastically! And it is still nice and hot. If my kids didn't start school in August I would probably try to plan a 2nd vacay to PCB late August when the prices drop.

It's hurricane season, but there will be very few people left on the beach. Everyone is back at school and it's still hot and the water is warm.

YES!! This will be our first time NOT going at that time but my husband is a teacher now so we have to go at peak times :(

Late August is perfect in PCB, we've never had weather issues but there is always that chance. The ONLY issue we've ever had was Margaritaville not having their balcony seating open because it was the end of summer. That type of the thing I would just check on in advance.

If I'm not mistaken, ANY time is a great time to go to PCB!! :) But yes, August would be a very nice time of the year to go. Kids will be heading back to school, so the beaches/roads should be more calm than during the peak months.

Have fun!
