Welcome to our beautiful community! Whether you are looking to relocate a business, your family or both, we think that Bay County can meet your needs.
Bay County is located in Northwest Florida between Pensacola and Tallahassee, one hundred miles from either destination. Our community is home to one of the newest airports in the U.S., Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport, which now has connected us to the world with service provided by Southwest as well as Delta airlines.
Bay County is comprised of seven municipalities with their own mayor/commissioner form of government – Panama City, Panama City Beach, Lynn Haven, Springfield, Mexico Beach, Callaway and Parker. The Bay County Commission governs the unincorporated areas of the community. You can find more details on each by clicking on the designated areas labeled on the map below.

Our economic anchors are tourism, military and a diverse group of local industries ranging from call centers of nationally known companies to major manufacturers.
We are home to Tyndall Air Force Base and the Naval Support Activity which employ over 10,000 military and civilian personnel. In addition, there is a large presence of supporting defense contractors in the area and region.
Our community is especially proud of our number one industry, tourism. Home to the World's Most Beautiful Beaches, you will find over 27 miles of sugar white sandy beaches to enjoy along with plenty of sun, surf, and activities to keep you busy.
Whether you want to visit or call us home, we invite you to enjoy our little piece of paradise!
