It's much smaller and quieter than Destin or Panama City Beach but is situated between the two so if you want a bit more excitement then it's just a short car ride away. The last time that we visited our daughter took her three best friends and we did go into Destin one day to visit the outlet mall but that is the only time we have ever done that. We just love it there so much that we don't see any reason to leave. There is some great shopping and Lilly Pulitzer is just a short bike ride away.
If you're looking for beautiful white beaches and quality family time then check out Seaside, FL for yourself. You may find yourself going back again and again just like we did.
