These days, it's hard to find a place where you can truly get away from it all. Well, there is a place where things move at a slower pace, where there are no traffic lights, the sand on the beach is white as snow and the gulf waters are warm and clean. That place is Mexico Beach on Northwest Florida's Gulf Coast.
Mexico Beach offers a number of excellent establishments for delicious food and cool libations. When you're craving fresh-caught seafood, a smooth cocktail or live entertainment, Mexico Beach is the place to be!
Unlike destinations further south, Mexico Beach experiences brief, subtle changes of season. Summers are balmy and wonderful and winters are calm and comfortable, but most locals prefer spring and fall with their warm days and cool nights.
Northwest Florida Day Trips to Remember
