From North to South

I recently moved here from Wisconsin, I’m from a small town near the capitol of Madison. Why the move? Because there is no other place I’ve been that has white sandy beaches, warm weather and an endless amount of activities for people of all ages. After having chilly, sometimes below freezing months, I knew it was time to make a move. I thought and thought about a place where I could reap in the nice weather, walk outside and see palm trees, take nice long relaxing walks on the beach and a place that I could eventually call home. Two places came to mind: Orange Beach, California and Perdido Key, Florida. After that, it was a cake walk, an easy choice! I chose… Perdido Key!

Growing up from a little girl to becoming a teenager and finally into an adult, I vacationed here nearly every year with my family of six. With having three sisters, we all looked forward to this trip every year! It not only brought us together, but we we’re constantly having the time of our life! The most difficult part of our vacations was choosing what to do? Where to eat? Where to get souvenirs? Etc. There are so many options! Over the years, we’ve accumulated a lot of “favorite” places. Some that I will mention are: Lillian’s Pizza here in Perdido Key has always had good service and their food is delicious! We then sometimes after a filling meal, head over to Gulf Shores, Alabama, about a 25-30 minute drive and go to The Track and do some go-carting or take on a game of mini-golf there or across the street at Pirate’s Island Adventure Golf. Another family favorite, especially for my little sister’s is souvenir shopping. They love bringing memories and keepsakes home with them. A few places we enjoy going to look around and get souvenirs from is the Beach Planet in the Villagio located right in Perdido Key and then just over the bridge in Orange Beach, Alabama is Alvin’s Island and Souvenir City. They have anything from spray painted shirts, henna tattoos to pet hermit crabs; I would recommend any of these three places to people of all ages.

I could go on and on about places my family loves to go and now that I’m actually living here I know there is always something to do. From taking a relaxing stroll on the beach to renting jet-skis, scooters and so much more, life is good at the beach! While enjoying my toes in the white fluffy sand, I enjoy taking walks, I like to take my iPod to listen to and it’s a great workout! Who would a thought working out could be relaxing! I even sometimes bring my phone so I can check Facebook and keep up to date with everything going on here and up north! So all and all, yes, I will miss the snow at times, NFL Packer Sunday’s with the family eating chili will a hot fire burning, but I know that my move here was a great choice. Therefore, I can’t wait to find more places to go, more restaurants I love and more adventures that I would’ve never been able to par-take in. Whether living here or just taking a vacation, Perdido Key is a beautiful, fun and relaxing place to be!
