Spring Break (March 1st – March 31st) Addendum

Panama City Beach has recently adopted new laws regarding activities during the Spring Break timeframe.  Those new laws are generally outlined below.  

· Alcohol is prohibited on the sandy beaches of PCB during Spring Break

· Clubs will close at 2am, after which Alcohol sales are prohibited

· Alcohol is prohibited in commercial parking lots, unless supervised by the owner of the lot

· Balcony climbing (any climbing on any balcony) is against the law

While this is a general summary of the new laws, the data is not all-inclusive, and you should familiarize yourself with the new laws to ensure compliance.

Additionally, throwing ANYTHING off a balcony is a FELONY in the state of Florida…

You will want to keep in mind that since bars will now close at 2am, there is a ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY for disturbances at the condo you are renting, so parties and loud, boisterous and disturbing behavior will not be tolerated.  ANY disturbance, damage or report of either will result in immediate eviction by the local Police and forfeit of all rental amounts and deposit.

Acceptance of the Rental Agreement and/or payment of deposit or rental amount will serve as agreement/acceptance of this Spring Break Addendum.

and/or payment of deposit or rental amount will serve as agreement/acceptance of this Spring Break Addendum.
