"Gulf Breeze, FL - What a Great Place to Live!"


Gulf Breeze, FL - What a Great Place to Live! - 12/23/2007

What a perfect place to live! Gulf Breeze is a small town that is convenient to the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico, as well as shopping and the airport in Pensacola (10 minutes or less to Pensacola from the center of Gulf Breeze).

If you enjoy water sports I can't imagine a better place to call home. Gulf Breeze is actually a peninsula with the Pensacola Bay on one side and the Santa Rosa Sound (Intra-Coastal Waterway) on the the other. You are just a short drive from Pensacola Beach (Santa Rosa Island) which has the most spectacular white sand beaches and emerald green water. Boaters, surfers, fisherman, bird watchers . . . this location has something for everyone.

In 2006 the decommissioned aircraft carrier Oriskany was sunk in 10 feet of water about 22 miles from the Pensacola Pass and is now been dubbed the "Great Carrier Reef." The Oriskany attracts divers from around the world.

Another great aspect of living in Gulf Breeze is that Pensacola is the home of Naval Aviation as well as the home of the Navy's flight demonstration team, the Blue Angels. The Naval Aviation Museum at Naval Air Station Pensacola makes a great outing and the Blue Angels do two "home" shows each year, one in July on Pensacola Beach and one in November at the air station.

The area is well known for the many festivals - from art festivals to seafood festivals - that are held year round.

Gulf Breeze schools are among the best public schools in Florida, and the town has a growing hospital, Baptist Hospital, as well as a new sports medicine center, the Andrews Institute.

The only negative thing I can think of is that we are beginning to see some traffic congestion (although people relocating from city areas will laugh at this!). What can you expect with such a great quality of life!

Gulf Breeze/Navarre - 6/4/2009

I live in a town East of Gulf Breeze called Navarre off the coastal route 98. I don't know why it isn't on the list of towns. Navarre, and Navarre Beach, especially is known as Florida's best kept secret. Google it and you'll be surprised.

Gulf breeze - 6/8/2008

I grew up in the north so for me the heat and humidity here is nothing short of relentless which is difficult because I am really an outdoors person. If you choose to live here....a pool is a must even though your so close to the water...it really helps.

no city transportation - 6/2/2006

No city transportation what so ever. You need a car to live here. The only way to get around,plus everything is out of town. Plus this is a speed trap town. So be careful driving in this town.
