Love it! Small town vibes. Safe, fun, and cute. Love the beach!! Not much crime. Good schools. Everyone knows everyone. Perfect for all ages. Very hot and buggy, though.
I have lived here my whole life and I wish I didn't have to leave it. The beach is super close to almost anywhere you live and the community is amazing.
