I came here to spend time with Mike during my Fall Break. The beach is just lovely, my favorite yet for the panhandle region. The sand is very white and mostly free of people during this time of the year. We stayed at the Hampton Inn, very nice for a modest hotel. Got a good view of the gulf from a balcony room.
The strip is filled with places to eat, mostly fish but you can’t go hungry. If you want to hear Jimmy Buffett music or anything from the sixties this is the place to be. Live bands can be found in most places, especially on the weekend.
Sidewalks make it nice for jogging but remember to bring extra water as the weather is extremely humid.
