I Still Think Pan-handle Of Florida And Alabama Is An Unkept Secret. We Vacation There And Plan To Hit The Races In August In Gulf Shores, Al. People Are As Nice As You Will Find And The Boating Was Awesome. A Client Just Bought A Lot A Few Miles Inland In A New Subdivision To Retire. Lot And Modest Home He Is Guessing Around 250k With A 2 Min. Tow To Water. Condos And Homes On The Beach Itself Are High Priced But Can Get Into The Intercoastal For Reasonable For What I Saw.

Cape Coral, Fl. can put you on gulf access for that money at the moment - with a pool too. Taxes and Ins. are what you would likely expect, but a much, much cheaper buy in. Both of your initial ideas sound very good as well.

Destin Florida is a sleeper and a real up and commer so I have heard.

Best of luck!

I don't believe an area exists in the U.S.A. where you can boat for several seasons, have a booming economy AND affordable housing. Pick any two and you have several options.

I live in Bergen County, NJ where IMO is a bit recession proof being located 17 miles outside of NYC, but housing is not affordable given your $250k limit. Out here $250k doesn't buy a desirable 50' x 75' lot. The normal boating season is May to October. Your best bet is to stay where you are & grow your income to meet your lifestyle or move to another area within the southern states. These are just my opinions & not meant to stir any chit with the sensitive arm chair commando's.

Merry Christmas!!
