Legacy by the Sea

15325 Front Beach Rd., Panama City Beach, Florida, 32413, United States

Nearly every room at this family-friendly, 14-story, pastel-peach hotel has a private balcony with commanding gulf views. Rooms are designed with families in mind, from the fully equipped kitchens to the two televisions and waterproof sofa cushions to the door that conveniently separates the bedroom area from the rest of the unit. There's a gulf-front pool and hot-tub area (with a kiddie pool), and freebies include Continental breakfast, daily newspaper, local calls, and an airport shuttle. A variety of water-sports options, including parasailing and Jet-Skiing, is offered by on-site concessionaires. The hotel's closed-circuit cable channel, airing nothing but live security-camera feeds (inside the elevator, around the pool, in the common areas), makes keeping an eye on the kids a breeze—and keeping an eye on unsuspecting adults a hoot. Note that prices vary wildly depending on the season and the type of room you reserve.
