I've just discovered Saint George Island while looking for a vacation rental for my parents for a month or so this winter (January/February). The island looks beautiful and seems that it might be just what they need. Can anyone provide details re: weather, etc. at that time of year? Is the island deserted? This might be a really ignorant question, but I assume that all stores, etc. remain open? We've spent significant amounts of time (summer and winter) in the Orlando/Kissimme area, as well as Daytona but the panhandle is completely new to us. My folks aren't looking for HOT weather - just something a little warmer than we're used to right now (our high has been below the freezing point for a couple of weeks already and Jan/Feb will only be worse) and they don't need a lot of nightlife (just looking for some good old fashioned R&R). Any advice or information you can provide is greatly appreciated.
