I've been looking for a small house or cottage at Mexico Beach for my husband and myself in June. I would like to be within walking distance of the beach. I have seen several possibilities that are across Hwy 98 from the beach. How much of a problem is crossing the highway while pulling a beach cart, etc? Also, if we stay in the area and want to drive to the beach are there plenty of places to park? If so, what area? And also, I had been under the impression that there were several restaurants in Mexico Beach, but clicked on restaurants and only saw four. What is the situation about places to eat? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
