I live in Seattle and go back to Fl every year to get out of the rain and make sure the sun is still there.
I used to go to New Smyrna beach (just south of Daytona), but the hurricanes have decimated the beach there, so I'm looking for another location.
Would the beach at Treasure Island be hard packed enough to walk a mile or so without sinking in every step? I just love to walk in the surf for miles, but some beaches are just too soft (Pensacola, for example). Can anyone recommend a good beach for this kind of walking?
