Sounds like quite a nice place (if not a little too precrash 90's/00's condo-boomy on the coast).
It's a bit quieter and more family than, say, Pensacola or Panama City. If I were in my 20s and single, I would probably go elsewhere. But I'm taking my girlfriend and my daughter, and my parents and brother, plus a handful of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews are all coming in, so it's perfect for what I have in mind.
