We are planning a family vacation this July with our 2 daughters and their significant others. I see that there are different areas of the island and I am trying to decide where we would be happiest.
We will have 2 cars, so driving will not be an issue. Ideally I would like to be as close to the Gulf as possible and in a non-commercial area. However, it would also be nice to have nearby restaurants and shopping. Also, what is there to do to keep 2 couples in their 20's happy? I know bars will be top of the list....beach bars at the tip top and live music at a beach bar on the water would be a home run!. How about cute shopping areas?
I just became aware of this area and it looks like we would love being there. I just want to make sure that we make a good choice of location.
Thanks for any help!
