    Does it matter if it's the panhandle or further south on the gulf?

    I worked for a firm that developed a lot of Sandestin. I never got to go but sure saw a lot of beautiful homes, beaches, and golf course pictures.

    Moved to Tampa- living away from hurricane evacuation zones, thank you. In the summer the area beaches will have water temps around 90 degrees (now 88 per local weather, "like bath water") as the Gulf warms up. It is hot and humid- think 90's. Not sure if the Panhandle follows this but you can expect scattered daily storms- no big deal as they pass quickly. The beach is a nice place to be. Pay attention to the weather- hearany thunder, see distant lightening- get away from the water. Also pay attention if there are any algae bloom warnings along your stretch of beach. Also pay attention to keeping up on your sunscreen! Many options in the Tampa Bay area- the Clearwater pier is fun and there are many quitter options along the west coast barrier islands.

    Some of these Panhandle beaches are under a no-swim advisory. http://whnt.com/2016/06/29/florida-panhandle-beaches-placed-under-no-swim-advisory/
