    I was in my mid 20s when I lived there. And I just left. Where are you going to be living? I was living in Destin (where I was working) and spent my time between Sowal and Destin. I had friends down there- but they weren't necessarily "professionals". They worked on the beach, had misc. jobs. Not that there is anything wrong with that...but the chance of finding a 20 something to discuss the market with may be a little tricky. In my opinon.

    If you go into Destin...there is a group that meets that is throught the Chamber of Commerce. It's a young professionals group that was really nice. They have luncheons, socials, ect.

    What kind of work are you doing?

    development, not sure where i'm going to live yet, sowal sounds great, but may not be practical for someone in my age and point in life, destin could be an option. thx for your help

    There are young professionals, most of whom are realtors. South Walton is a small place, so it will be easy to get to know them. We need more - so welcome.

    I would live close to work. I wanted to live in Sowal and threw a fit when my dad basically forced me to rent in Destin. But it wasn't so bad. It's like the "big city".

    There is definitely more of a "scene" in Destin. Get on the comp list at Rockstar and you will have "arrived".

    You'll have fun though.

    If you're working there...live down there. It's a 20 or so minute drive. It'll save you lots in gas.

    Fun! I'm originally from B'ham. Seems like all my friends that went back after college dispersed from that area. Sowal is close enough, but far enough away. Get ready though...Memorial Day, 4th of July, and Labor Day that phone is going to start ringing. Pull out the sofa bed.

    No, not calling you old, just being silly with LL. I don't live in the area, only visit 1 a year, but when I was in my early 20's, I picked up and moved to Maderia Beach, FL. Best time I ever had, met my husband there and still have many good friends there. I can't go there on vacation though, I got hooked on SoWal. I think young or old -- you would enjoy it.
