We are thrilled that President Barack Obama, first lady Michelle and daughter Sasha chose Panama City Beach for a family vacation last weekend! Though the trip was short, they managed to visit some of the local businesses around the area; which included a Saturday night dinner at The Resort Collection’s choice of fine diningâ€“Firefly, one of the area’s most unique casual fine dining restaurants. Â You may be interested to know that President Obama ordered the 14oz New York Strip, while Michelle dined on the Twin Lobster Tails prepared by Firefly’s acclaimed Chef Paul Stellato. Check out details on the first family’s vacation atÂ WJHG Channel 7 or in theÂ The Panama City News Herald.
This kind of national attention to the beauty of Panama City Beach is a huge step in the right direction. It is due greatly to the hard work our local businesses and media have done to get the message out that we are open for business, and our waters are clean. Keep up the good work everyone!
