My husband and I got to get away, and come for some air after my father's long term hospitalization, then his death, and my mother's stroke. So as you can see I really needed just to relax, but due to us stopping at Paradise Beach Resort Casino it just RUINED OUR VACATION. We had decided to take a walk from... More

Alright= it was cool. Beautiful and warm. I loved the long walks on the beach, resto atmosphere, rocks jutting out into the sea and just the down south feeling.
