    I would get a slip at Sportsmans marina. They have a great restaurant on site called the Tiki. You should hit Pirates cove, Happy Harbor, Tacky Jacks (there are 2 of them and I would go to both). In the afternoon try out Cobalt. They have a nice happy hour with cheap drinks and good apps and a great view. I would hit the FloraBama too. They always have live bands playing on the beach and you can beach the boat and walk in. There are a couple new bar/restaurants at the Wharf to check out.

    We are about to embark on the same thing, thinking of trailering the boat down while we are there for a week. Any must see by water suggestions? and a good place to snorkel (the other half likes to snorkel).
