Review of Lynn Haven, Florida

High Cost of Living, Small Job Market
Star Rating - 5/5/2010
This town, along with the surrounding Panama City and beach suffers from low pay and high cost of living. There are way more people than jobs. It is very seasonal on the beach, most of the restaurants are closed during the winter on the beach. In town, i.e., Lynn Haven, Panama City, there is nothing to do. You can do some basic shopping, they have the chain stores like Kohl's, Pier One, but there are few cultural opportunities. There are no concert halls, big museums, anything like that. The beach is about 20 minutes away. There is a paper mill in town that stinks up the town, makes it smell like rotten eggs. The big employer in the area is Sallie Mae and that will be closing down the end of this year or the beginning of the next due to the government taking over student loans. The job loss is estimated to be about 200 people.
