the great things about living here: all the outdoor activities. It's best to love water sports and sports in general. Great outdoor eating establishments in all catagories in every price range. Best weather (locals will agree)- Oct-May. Summers have been steadily hotter every year for the last five years or so. Has always been a great place for self employment. Housing is affordable. People are friendly but caucious;
now, not to burst your bubble about moving here but... utilities are higher than the national average. we are most concerned about the power company(we only have one). It would be nice to have some competition as we are stuck with whatever rate they choose to impose on us.general opinion from those who grew up here,like myself,; our gulf and bay breezes have been greatly compromized by all the condos built around the edges of the city. Don't let that scare you away. all I can say is "thank God for Louis Carrier"!
