Who knew a traditional old Florida beach town still existed without mass high rises and mobs of people. It's like a Norman Rockwell painting with palm trees instead of oak trees. They have great restaurants and shops and the beach is amazing.

The beach was beautiful and quiet at this time of year. It was breezy most days and you definitely needed a jacket! Not much in the way of shells, but easy to walk along and many people had dogs. Always a pleasure to walk on...More

There is a no dogs aloud sign posted and there were dogs on leashes up and down the beach. There were also a lot of police and animal control who didn’t seem to care about the dogs.
