I remember back in the '70s when my folks would come to Florida from Mobile, Alabama to see my grandparents and such. We would come through Panama City Beach each way.
There was this tourist attraction on the side of the road close to the dunes called Sea and Indian.
It had a reptile exhibit and a small dark maze you had to go through from the gift shop to the rest of the place. The maze had a few trick floors that would slightly move when you stepped on them that would make you think you were going to fall.
Outside they had a huge sun fish on display and a few other fish as well. There was also a 10 gallon metal drum with water that you could put one of those big porous rocks in that would float. There were walkways that overlooked the place and you could see the ocean.
Now I can't find a single thing about this place online. It's like it never existed.
Editor says: it doesn't show up on any master list of Florida attractions. Maybe it was part of another attraction in Panama City Beach.
