But not always. When I was in my 20’s and lived in Miami, I enjoyed the action and scene on Miami Beach. Crowded. Colorful. Commercial. Fun. Trendy bars and hip hotels. Impossible parking.

Sanibel and Miami Beach – these two places are near polar opposites, except they share sun, sand and surf. For us, the buzz of Miami Beach makes a fun weekend, but not a lifestyle.
Most Florida beach communities sit between these two extremes. Some heavily developed with highrise condos, others more pristine.
