      Any evaluation of these FL cities woud be appreciated.  Cost of living?  Cost of golf?  Rental property?  Thank you.

              I hear that Panama City smells like a pulp mill.  Destin is supposed to be a very nice golf area but I don't know about prices.  The beaches there are among the best in the USA.  Let me know about the cost of living if you have that info. 
              Pensacola has some reasonably priced courses around it.  I am looking for decent cost of living and good golf prices.  I was interested in Myrtle Beach, where I have visited many times, but their crime rate is quite high.  If you are reasonably secure $, look at St. Simons Island and Jeckyl(sp?) Island GA.  I grew up near there and these are wonderful islands.  LR

              You may want to look at St. Augustine.  We have been going there for 6 years and just bought a condo.  One of the retirement magazines rated it one of the best places to retire.  Little traffic, not your typical Florida., no massive condo complexes.
