Perdido Key Florida is a great place to live and go on vacation to - unlike many beach communities, it's not over-built at all. Perdido Key is situated between Pensacola and Orange Beach/Gulf Shores Alabama, making shopping, airports, medical-care, etc. very convenient. It can be hot & humid in the summer months - fall, winter & spring are the best times with great weather & fewer tourists. Activities include all the water-sports, arts, history, golf, fishing, festivals, etc. - the beautiful white beaches are 2nd to none and there are plenty of excellent restaurants in the area. Good luck & enjoy the southern hospitality in Perdido Key!

Congrats on your relocation!

but do be aware that TA doesn't allow relocation threads, so this could be closed. So you can go to other various places such as City Data and the like to research the relocation side. Touristy stuff like where to eat, take your dogs etc is fine.

Good idea bout renting before you buy. Always wise.
