I loved the slow, relaxed pace! If you are looking for some peace and quiet along with the beauty of the beach, this is for you. The condo we stayed in had a beachfront view and was close to food and drink yet no bars and loud music. Being from the Live Music Capital of the World, Austin, TX, this... More

we've not been to a beach before that was as clean, had lifeguards, shops right on the beach where no shoes-no problem was the motto and where my children could watch so many surfers. It was a blast!

We have made this our family getaway for the past 4 years. We welcome the quiet atmosphere and the minimal tourist cruising. We have stayed at DestinWest, Ramada Inn and our new favorite WaterScapes condos. Our first night's dinner is always at The Crab Trap at the Boardwalk for fresh seafood. We also love to cross the bridge into the... More
