Gulf coast beach front vacation - need ideas and suggestions

I remember back in the day we'd go to Grayton Beach and just veg out in one of the old beach cottages. It was classic. Old cottages, dirt road, HUGE beach and hardly anyone around as far as you could see.

I went back there a few years ago and was amazed at the change. condo's, modern houses, pavement... hardly even recognized the place. They have some seriously nice houses there now.

I wish I had bought some of that property back in 83.
