We recently moved here in March and love the area alot. All the locals are very informative about where to shop and eat. Which everything is close within 1 mile or a 30 min. Drive. Restaurants are great. From a hamburger to a Steak or Fish dinner.always something to to in rain or sunshine. Close to several beaches and Shopping. And the beaches are pet friendly which is great since we have 4 dogs.we were kinda worried about moving from our family but we do not regret the move at all. Hope this was helpful. Enjoy Gulf Breeze .We do..
