Mexico Beach getting new grocery store after Hurricane Michael!

It was approved during the Mexico Beach city council meeting on Tuesday, February 11th 2020, that a brand new grocery store will be coming back to Mexico Beach, Florida.  Mayor, Al Cathey, confirmed the exciting news.  The coastal city on the Gulf of Mexico in the panhandle of Florida beloved by so many in the southeast has been without a grocery store since Gulf Foods, the former and only grocery store in Mexico Beach, was destroyed in Hurricane Michael.  News reports state this new grocery store is set to go in at 625 15th Street, and is aiming to be open in as little as six weeks! The owner hopes to be as full service as possible.  This is certainly great news for the future progression of Mexico Beach, and a welcomed addition for residents and visitors alike.  Although heavily devastated from the category five hurricane the ripped through Florida on October 1oth, 2018, the landscape of Mexico Beach is shaping up nicely.  The future is bright for this resilient beach community.

St. George Island is amazing and here’s why

St. George Island is a 28-mile barrier island with some of the most beautiful and serene beaches on the Gulf Coast. It is one of the last inhabited, yet unspoiled, barrier islands of Florida, with miles of un-crowded beaches for sunning and shelling, clear Gulf waters for swimming and excellent fishing, pristine marshes for wildlife viewing. Visitors can rent a quaint beach cottage, a multi-story luxury beach home, or lodge at one of the four Island hotels or inns. The Island is also very pet friendly. Well-behaved dogs are always welcome on our beaches and pets are allowed in many of the rental homes. St. George Island is home to some of the most beautiful beach homes in Florida.

St. George Island State Park is one of the most beautiful parks in the state and occupies the far eastern end of the island where you will find nine miles of pristine shoreline, majestic dunes, bay forest, sandy coves and salt marshes. The park has a series of hiking trails, boardwalks and observation platforms. Bird watching is a popular activity here. You might encounter one of the many migratory birds that use the island as a stopover on their way south or north.

Sail and powerboats are available for rent, or rent a kayak and explore the remote bays and inlets where you might catch a glimpse of a bald eagle overhead or a dolphin swimming in the surf. Rent a bike and ride the paved bike trail or head down to the state park for off road trails.
If you like to fish you’ll be in heaven on St. George Island where even a novice fisherman can bring home a fanciful treat for the evening meal. If you’ve made up your mind that you are truly on vacation and cooking is not on the agenda, St. George has a variety of eateries that serve only the freshest local seafood. Enjoy oysters surfside or dine on the bay watching the sunset. After dark the Island nightclubs offer live music, billiards, darts and other games. If that is not your thing, just recline on the beach and watch the moonrise over the Gulf or take the kids and watch the sand crabs scramble from hole to hole
