We have enjoyed some unseasonably warm fall months along the Forgotten Coast, but we don’t complain. We just head to the beach, find some shell treasures, and relish the feeling of sand between our toes! The warm extended-summer has us getting outside and visiting with our neighbors, either on walks around the community or at the local eateries. There are a number of choice restaurants to choose from, and most are within walking distance to the beach! Whether it’s the tasty tuna burger from Killer Seafood, the vast selection of wing sauces at Mango Marley’s, or the delicious hot pies from Crazy Beach Pizza, there’s always something appetizing to gather around with friends and family in Mexico Beach. You’ll find no chain restaurants around here, just good seafood and local specialities. See what’s out there!
