Favorite local restaurant: Big Fish in Orange Beach! Fresh, quality seafood right off the boat, fabulous sushi, amazing martinis and the world’s best coconut torte!

Best view in Perdido: From my beach cottage with a glass of wine in my hand!

Best beach cocktail: Bushwacker at the Flora Bama! 

Favorite place for a night out? Sunset cruise and dinner at Playa at Sportsman Marina. 

In your opinion, what should be one everyone’s “must-see list” when visiting Perdido? The view from the top of the lighthouse at NAS Pensacola. 

You’re renovating and decorating your beach cottage.  Do you have a favorite store nearby to find décor inspiration? Mint Décor in Orange Beach!  


Favorite local restaurant: I have several favorites, but I really enjoy the food and atmosphere of the Flora-Bama Yacht Club. I also love the sushi at the JellyFish Restaurant and Grill.

Best view in Perdido: The view down the National Seashore and of the Gulf of Mexico from Vista Del Mar is absolutely stunning

Best beach cocktail: Picker’s Vodka Blueberry Lemonade at the Flora Bama

In your opinion, what should be one everyone’s “must-see list” when visiting Perdido?

The sunset over the water, The Blue Angels show or practice from a boat, take a Sail Wild Hearts cruise, 4th of July fireworks down the Intra-coastal waterway and Old River, dolphins playing in the waves. If you are here in November, Songwriters in the Main Room at the Flora-Bama. 


Favorite local restaurant: The Gulf 

Best view in Perdido: NOTHING beats the morning view coming over the THEO BAARS bridge onto Perdido Key. It’s a special moment and most people I meet share the same experience. They just “GET IT” about what makes Perdido so special.

Best beach cocktail: The Gulf’s Blueberry Mojito or Hub Stacey’s Bloody Mary

Favorite place for a night out? Anywhere by boat!

Favorite local restaurant: That’s a tough one! Lately my favorite is The Point Restaurant on Innerarity Point Road. My 3-year old son loves to get down and boogie with the local band! They are known for their fresh fried seafood, made from scratch desserts and awesome local entertainment. Perfect eatin-in-the-rough spot!

Best view in Perdido: My favorite view would have to be almost sunset from the sound side on Johnson Beach looking West….the soft sound of the water splashing the shore and watching the heron hunt for their last meal of the day….soaking up the last bit of sun on your face, that’s the perfect ending to a day in Perdido Key! 

Best beach cocktail: Fresh Mojito from The Gulf Restaurant in Orange Beach

Favorite place for a night out? Dinner at Fisher’s in Orange Beach! Amazing appetizers and extensive wine list, then on to The Wharf for a ride on the carousel and maybe a movie…nice and low-key!

In your opinion, what should be one everyone’s “must-see list” when visiting Perdido? Hands down, you must see the Blue Angels Practice Show from the shallow turquoise waters of Sand Island by boat! Most amazing moment I have had by far!
