Default Navarre or Pace?

Looking for some local advice. Planning on retiring to the Panhandle next spring. Looking at these two areas mainly for the school ratings. I have a 4 and 7 year old. Schools and a safe neighborhood are my main concerns. So far leaning towards Navarre mainly because its closer to the gulf. I have been kayaking in the ocean exactly twice. Both in Roaton. Been canoeing for eons. Cant wait to actually catch fish in the ocean and never see 10 inches of snow again! Pros and cons or suggestions to other areas welcome. Thank you for your time.

Tough call. If you want to be close to the Gulf....Navarre, hands down. I believe Pace has better schools, but do the research. I live in Pace and very close to several boat ramps and great (but different) fishing. We are also close to UWF, hospitals, airport, and a nice easy ride to downtown P'cola. Pretty hard to lose either way!

Gulf Breeze is very close to the gulf and supposedly has some of the top schools in the state.

you asked, Go for for Pace, you get more for your $$ and not as crowded, and unless you fish every day, you wont miss the Navarre traffic in the summer... My 2 cents...

What's your tolerance for traffic? Both are getting bad, but Navarre is worse. At least retirement means you can avoid rush hour!

You say Navarre is close to the gulf. Well not by boat if that's your way to the gulf.

I lived in Navarre for five years. And well you could not get me to move back there. Too many people and traffic is horrible. Retired may be different. But when I got home from work, I refused to get back out because hwy 98 is just nasty!!!

Only one way to go down there and I hated that part.

Look into Okaloosa county if you haven't. Great schools and where I live now. I live in the country up North but work at Eglin. Close to fishing and the gulf.
