    Lots of access to the water and waterways, lots of beaches, beautiful area. No mountains or grasslands---this is a forested area, though it has farmlands nearby.

    The weather is generally pretty good. There is the worry about hurricanes in the summer,

    Since this is a small beach town, the employment opportunities are limited--mostly tourism/fishing/restaurant jobs
