Education Without Boundaries
There are two very big reasons the hotels near the Florida A & M University are ideal for giving you the full experience for your trip to Southeast Florida. The first has to do with the school that you are on the road to visit in nearby Tallahassee. Its history is rooted in the idea that education is not just for some but for all. In 1887, FAMU, as it’s affectionately known, opened its doors to just fifteen students with only two instructors on staff. It was the vision of Thomas Van Renssaler Gibbs, one that saw fruition even though he lost his position in the legislature due to the reemergence of segregation. In a time when equality was hard won and far scarcer than it should have been, the school remained a beacon of hope for the future.
In 1905, it was officially designated as an institution of higher education and by 1953, after years of growth and success, it became a university. It’s students played a significant role in race equality in the 50’s and 60’s, starting a legacy of social awareness and responsibility that continues to this day. It has been ranked among the best national universities by the U.S. News & World Report and Princeton Review’s “Best in the Southeast”. With programs for 54 different bachelor’s degrees, 29 master’s degrees, three professional degrees, and twelve doctoral programs, it provides a wide variety of opportunity for its students and remains an affordable option for a great education. Witness for yourself a school that has been a beacon of the power of equality and education since the first day of its long history with a room or suite at the hotels near the Florida A & M University.

You may be planning out this trip because you have business with the school, be it as a student, a parent, or an educator, but that doesn’t mean your stay at the hotels near the Florida A & M University need to be all about responsibility. And that’s where the second reason these hotels are the perfect spot for your trip. They offer you the perfect balance to the hours you have to spend touring the campus, talking to teachers, and getting work done by being located in and around the vibrant culture and action of Panama City Beach.
Whether you choose the Comfort Inn and Suites, the Days Inn Panama City Central, the Ramada Panama City, or the Econo Lodge Panama City, there are a couple of things you can count on. One is that you will be saving yourself a good portion of that travel budget because each of the hotels available is wonderfully economic. Part two is the location. From the long stretch of sandy white beaches on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico to local attractions like the Man in the Sea Museum and Pier Park, you are going to find as much to occupy you on your down time as you will during the day at the University.
