Every post I've seen regarding these areas says there is nothing but bad chain food. This is not good. My main reason for going on beach vacations with my wife is the seafood. Please tell me there is good seafood to be found (that I don't have to catch and cook). I like it all--it just needs to be fresh.
If this area is so bad, how far would one have to drive? I'm willing to go an hour or so (there will be a 3 month old with us...this will take some work) but I assume we could make it up to Flagler (or possibly Crescent, where I'm more familar). Is there anything south or west?
