I am 22, about to graduate college and begin my teaching career. I have been going to the Destin area all my life, and love it. I'm considering moving there. I want to move very close to the beach, where the beach has soft sand and clear water. I would like to have more progressive minded people, but I know that can be found anywhere in smaller numbers. I mostly want beautiful beaches and lots of outdoor activities to do. Like tennis, golf, scuba, sailing, etc. hopefully with lots of other young people. Where should I move?

If you're looking for the outdoor features you mention and more progressive-minded people the obvious answer in my opinion is Saint Petersburg.

St Pete (a good suggestion IMO) is really close the "almost never winter" line if that plays into your thinking. The panhandle does have seasons. Whether that is a good or bad think is up to you. Just starting teaching - you probably know the two sides to that coin. You can go almost anywhere because entry level teachers are hired in almost every system every year. That's the good news. The bad new is it isn't going to be easy to afford to live really close to the beach on an entry level teacher salary.

My advice....go where you can find a teaching job. Where are there openings in the subject and grade you want to teach? Some districts will be not rehiring some teachers again this year as they cut back because of lack of money. Check with your college placement office and see where the job openings are.

Brevard county didn't offer 7 2nd yr teachers contracts this year . That is lower than it has been and they are not closing any schools down this year so you might want to check on this side of the state too. Our beaches aren't the lazy river type(except for June and July maybe when it is often called Lake Atlantic because of the small waves) We don't have the white sugar sand like the Gulf but tour beaches-all 60 miles of them- are beautiful in so many ways. We probably have the best surf in Florida.
