12 Things You’ll Only Understand If You Grew Up Near The Beach
By living in Florida, you’re pretty much always within driving distance to the beach. Which is pretty darn cool, if you ask us. Whether you’re by the panhandle, on the Gulf side, or over by the Atlanta, the beach is just a hop, skip, and a jump away. For those Floridians who grew up right on the beach or very close, however, there are a few things that only you will understand. Take a look.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
Let’s keep this list going! Add in the comments sections your own additions to things you’ll only understand if you grew up near the beach.
