In the very near future, I will purchase a second home in either the Destin or Pensacola areas. It will be beachfront, and either condo or private residence. I will not lease/rent the place. It will be used by myself and 20 year old daughter as well as our friends and family. We will do some boating, but no fishing. We plan on being beach/pool bums while visiting our new place. We now have to make a decision about location and cannot decide if Pensacola or Destin should be the area we buy into. I would appreciate any feedback about the pros and cons of these two cities. Since our permanent residence is New Orleans, we do not want to go much further east that Destin. Thanks to all in advance who responded.
