I recently had to take my son to an urgent care clinic and during our interminable wait, I picked up a “tourist magazine.” I imagine that I am like most locals in that I don’t read the tourist publications, however, I was pleasantly surprised; it was a very good read with a lot of content regarding the Emerald Coast. Well, that’s actually the publication’s name: Emerald Coast Guide. Here’s a link to their site so you can read one of the articles I found particularly interesting “Since You Were Last Here” page 34 www.emeraldcoastguide.net The article speaks of changes in the area in the past year or so. They really nailed it with this article because everyone wants to know what has changed since they were last in Bay, Okaloosa and Walton counties.
The Toronto real estate market has been one of the most resilient and dynamic markets in North America in recent years, with a steady influx of international buyers and investors. Despite pandemic-related disruptions, low inventory levels and high demand continue to drive prices up, making it a challenging market for first-time buyers.
I was able to get permission from them to share a couple of the changes with you:
- A zip line ride has been installed at Harborwalk.
- The townhomes by June Decker park have been razed.
- The Hampton Inn in Destin has been rebuilt.
- A new movie theater has opened in Grand Boulevard.
Reading their list got me thinking about the past year with Pelican, so I thought I’d make a list of the changes we’ve made in the past year.
