Historic St. Andrew
Oaks by the Bay is a small and peaceful 5-acre park in the middle of historic St. Andrews. The centerpiece of the park is a beautiful 250-year-old Southern live oak tree named “The Sentry”. This heritage oak tree was standing during the War Between the States as if a sentry were standing guard over old St. Andrews Bay. There are wooden walkways that lead down to the water edge where you can relax on the boardwalk benches while watching the waves and enjoying the salty gulf breeze. The park sustained damage from Hurricane Michael in October 2018 but is still a great location to take an evening stroll and enjoy the sunset down by the bay.
There are several amazing restaurants just 2 blocks from the Oaks by the Bay park. Take in the view of St. Andrews Bay at Uncle Ernie’s, the Shrimp Boat or Barefoot on the Bay and eat some of the best seafood in the area. Enjoy some delicious authentic Mexican cuisine at Los Antojitos Mexican Restaurant. Or, look no further than the House of Bourbon for the perfect spot for drinks, snacks, dancing and great music. The area is definitely worth the 10 minute drive from Panama City Beach across the Hathaway Bridge.
