Our Perdido Key area is the first stop for many travelers to Florida.
Escambia County covers approximately 661 square miles of land with an
additional 64,000 acres of waterways. We have everything from beautiful
beaches to an active city life as well as productive farmlands.
I have pride in the people of this area. The citizens reflect a spirit of
excitement and enthusiasm that continues to draw visitors and vacationers, who
soon become residents. Our County has been and will continue to be there for
its citizens as well as its visitors. Presently, we have over $200 million of
development projects underway in the greater area.
As the elected County Commissioner in Escambia County, I would like to
welcome you to the Perdido Key area. The Key has a rich and diverse history

The Perdido Key Visitor’s Guide is truly a collaborative effort of the members
of the Perdido Key Area Chamber of Commerce. It is with great enthusiasm
that we present this Guide for our local community.
I, for one, am very thankful for the individual, group and community efforts
that have put so much pride and effort into making this unique area the best
place to live and vacation once again. I am pleased to say that we have rebuilt
this area with the same straightforward passion on which our beloved Lost Key
was founded.
As old businesses reopen and new businesses come to call our corner of
Northwest Florida home, I am continually encouraged at the growth I see every
time I drive down the road. The strength and hopeful spirit of the residents and
business owners on the Key is heartwarming and gives me a sense of pride for
this area that I both work and live in.
It is the goal of this organization to assist in the nurturing, maintenance and
growth of our community. I hope that every reader finds and enjoys the
information provided within the pages of this Guide, whether they are a local
business owner, resident, or visitor to the Perdido Key area. I am proud to be
your 2007 Chairman of the Perdido Key Area Chamber of Commerce and look
forward to the successful future of each entrepreneur, business, family member,
resident, property owner and visitor on our shores.
Respectfully,
Debbie Waters, 2007 Chairman

Why are we so full of restraint?
Why do we not give in all directions?
Is it fear of losing ourselves?
Until we do lose ourselves there is no
hope of finding ourselves.
~Henry Miller
Lose Yourself in
Perdido Key
Perdido Key was originally difficult to locate. Tristan de Luna
first landed on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico in 1559, but it
wasn’t until years later, after both Spanish and French explorers
established settlements in Pensacola and Mobile, that Spanish
explorer Carlos Siguenza discovered a bay hidden between the
two ports. He named the bay and the island that kept it hidden
from the settlers “Perdido,” meaning “lost” in Spanish.
Don’t worry: If you’re planning a trip to the Key today, you
won’t need a compass and an explorer’s acute sense of direction to
find us. These days the Key is much easier to locate, and each
year many people experience the beauty of this once-lost
paradise. However, the settlers were on to something when they
named the Key, and it still remains tucked away from the hustle
and bustle of our modern world. It is a place where you can lose
yourself.
The idea of losing yourself means taking the time to truly
relax, to exist in a moment where nothing can bother you: not a
ringing phone, a never-ending traffic jam, a demanding boss, or
an increasingly high pile of dirty laundry. Leave all that behind
when you visit Perdido.
The Key takes you miles away from your worries and offers up
an easy-going, laid-back, island lifestyle complete with the
soothing sounds of the Gulf ’s waters, great food and
entertainment, and a beach chair and umbrella that are waiting
just for you. If you’re looking to get a little bit lost, you’ll find
your chance in Perdido Key.

Island Spotlight
Perdido Key, Florida, is a 247-acre, 16-mile long barrier island on
the Gulf of Mexico. Barrier islands provide habitats for coastal animals.
Dunes (sand formations built by wind) found on the Key are
characteristic of barrier islands. Conde Nast Traveler has rated our
narrow barrier island among the top five island beaches thanks to its
sparkling white sand and clear, turquoise water. The Key, as the area is
called by natives, is a natural paradise where you’ll find unspoiled
beaches, water habitats like marshes and wetlands, and a variety of sea life
and wildlife.
Just off the island is the area known to locals as the mainland. The
mainland just west of the island is still considered the Key and is home
to Big Lagoon State Park and the areas Innerarity Point and Innerarity
Island. Innerarity Point includes many retail and dining locations, while
Innerarity Island is a small, private, residential community.
The Key is bordered by the Gulf of Mexico to the south and the Ole
River, or Perdido River, to the north. From the Key, there is easy access
to the broad expanse of Perdido Bay and to the Gulf of Mexico. The
Key’s location also puts you in close proximity to lagoons and coves; All
nearby bodies of water offer excellent sailing, snorkeling, fishing, and
swimming opportunities. Pensacola, Florida, is just to the east of the
island with Orange Beach and Gulf Shores, Alabama, to the west.
Did you know that the sugary-white beaches found on Perdido
Key are composed of fine quartz that over time has eroded from
granite in the Appalachian Mountains? The sand is carried by rivers
and creeks and deposited on our shore. Perhaps because of the
fineness of the quartz, the sand makes a notable squeak as you slide
your bare feet through it—a sound that kids love and that can make
adults feel like kids again.
Approximately 62 percent of Perdido Key is made up of protected
land as part of the Gulf Island National Seashore and Perdido Key
State Recreation Park. Florida’s state park system,, including Perdido
Key State Recreation Park and Big Lagoon State Park, was voted Best in
America by the National Recreation and Parks Association in October
1999 and received the National Gold Medal State Park Award.
The Perdido Key Beach Mouse calls our island home. Registered as
an endangered species since 1985, the large-eared nocturnal herbivore
feeds primarily on the seeds of sea oats and beach grasses that are
plentiful in our area. To protect the Beach Mouse’s habitat,
boardwalks—built up over the dunes and interdunal areas—provide
public access to the beaches.
An estimated 1,200 residents call Perdido Key home year-round and
enjoy the laid-back lifestyle our lost island has to offer.
No matter when you come to the Key, there’s always something
happening. Each month of the year is packed with events, from regattas
to festivals and fireworks to The Frank Brown Inter national
Songwriters’ Festival™, where world-renowned singers and songwriters
of various genres of music come to perform.
Northwest Florida’s climate is semi-tropical, with hot summers and
warm winters. The summer provides just the right weather for
sunbathing and a cool dip in the water, while the fall and winter provide
the perfect atmosphere for outdoor activities in the Key’s pristine,
natural surroundings. So, what are you waiting for? Come lose yourself
in Perdido Key.

The Surroundings
Nature: Henry Thoreau used it as his muse for writing Walden
while living a minimalist life in a small cottage by Walden Pond. The
natural surroundings of the cottage’s location provided Thoreau a
place to get away from it all. Nature has the ability to offer a place to
escape from life’s hustles and bustles. Whether you’re looking for an
escape or are in search of your own creativity, just a little peace and
quite, or all-out adventure, Perdido Key is a natural paradise of
unspoiled beaches, wetlands, bays, coves, and parks perfect for any
experience with nature.
Once you’ve arrived in Perdido Key, it doesn’t take long to
appreciate the natural beauty of the island or to get a clear idea of
what our lifestyle is all about. Even the street names provide clues,
stating promises like Tranquility Lane and Play-A-Way Street: names
that echo the island’s offerings, tempt visitors to extend their stays,
and keep locals calling Perdido Key home. With miles of white-sand
beaches and protected national and state parks, Perdido Key offers
you a chance to lose yourself in the surroundings and, maybe, find
yourself at the same time.
Approximately 62 percent of the island is established as protected
land. The area’s state park system has been voted Best in America and
even received a nod from “Doctor Beach” on one of his well known
and coveted Best Beaches lists. Perdido Key State Recreation Park
boasts 1.4 miles of beautiful beaches and rolling dunes covered in sea
oats. Boardwalks from the parking lot allow access to the beach
without damaging the fragile dunes and vegetation. The area is a
favorite for swimming, sunbathing and surf fishing. Johnson Beach
and the For t McRee area, in the Florida district of the Gulf Island
National Seashore, make up nearly half of the Key. The area provides
public access to the beach as well as amenities like picnic shelters
alongside wild rosemary and sweeping panoramic views. This
uninhabited portion of the island is perfect for hiking, launching your
boat and even bird watching—more than 280 species of birds have
been identified and located within the Gulf Island National Seashore’s
total area.
Big Lagoon State Park puts you right in the middle of Perdido
Key’s uninterrupted, natural surroundings. This coastal park sits on
the northern shore of its namesake, Big Lagoon, which separates the
mainland from Perdido Key and the Gulf of Mexico. Here, you’ll find
natural communities like saltwater marshes and pinewood flats. To
explore theses communities, you can traverse nature trails and explore
open woodlands. There are also opportunities for camping, fishing,
boating, swimming, canoeing, hiking and picnicking. A barrier-free
trail at Tarkiln Bayou State Park also puts you at one with the
surroundings: alongside wiregrass and endangered pitcher plants—of
which the carnivorous white-top species is unique to the Gulf Coast.
You can use the boardwalk, hike on nature trails, and enjoy a picnic.
Find out more about all of the activities afforded by the beautiful
surroundings at Perdido Key in the section of our Visitor’s Guide
devoted to recreation and revelry. Whether you’re enjoying nature
close up in a kayak or from afar while sunbathing near the water’s
edge, Perdido Key beckons you to visit and get lost in nature. We
can’t promise you’ll find peace, but we think it’s pretty likely.

Care to Stay Awhile?
The natural surroundings of Perdido Key provide the perfect vacation escape.
But, if you choose to relocate and call the Key home, our coastal breezes and the
smell of the Gulf ’s salty waters can afford you that escape everyday. You’ll become a
local as you adapt to our laid-back, island lifestyle that allows you to get a little bit
lost each day. But don’t worry. You have easy access to the mainland if you feel like
being found. Between the mainland—including Pensacola to the east and Orange
Beach and Gulf Shores, Alabama, to the west—and the island, all of your
necessities are taken care of and all parts of your multi-faceted personality met. You
can take in the weekends with your feet in the sand under an open beach umbrella,
explore the ruins of Fort McRee, or enjoy some shopping—in Key stores or
Pensacola’s malls and unique downtown boutiques. There are also retail outlet
centers a bit further to the east in Destin, Florida, and a bit further to the west in
Fole y, Alabama.
While Perdido Key is the perfect vacation destination for the summer months,
the island offers much more than just sparkling white beaches and temperate ocean
water. In fact, the area is a cultural and artistic hub, with various events taking
place all year round. Those that call the Key home know they can always take part
in a special event that’s set in front of a beautiful backdrop. If you become a local,
you’ll find that it’s easy to fill up your calendar quickly. From fishing rodeos to
haunted houses, the Frank Brown Inter national Songwriter’s Festival™ to
Christmas in the Park, golf tournaments to fun runs, chili cook-offs to the Polar
Bear Dip®, Earth Day to the Interstate Mullet Toss®, and art shows and seafood
festivals, our narrow, barrier island is a mecca for songwriters, talented golfers,
outdoorsmen, artists, cooks, and those just in search of a having good time.
Nearby communities are also culturally rich and host yearly festivals and events.
These communities are perfect for day trips and also offer reasons to consider
relocating to the Key. Pensacola is home to the Navy flight demonstration
squadron the Blue Angels, who give many spectacular formation-flying shows
throughout the year. Pensacola’s National Museum of Naval Aviation is the
second-largest air and space museum in the world and displays everything from
wood and fabric biplanes to spacecraft. You can even catch an IMAX film while
you’re there. Pensacola is also known for its unique art, music, and heritage
festivals, including the Greek Festival, Seafood Festival, Great Gulf Coast Arts
Festival, Crawfish Festival, and JazzFest. Pensacola’s distinct 300-year history is also
on display in its downtown replica of Washington D.C.’s Vietnam Veterans
Memorial, in Historic Pensacola Village, and at the T.T. Wentwor th, Jr. Florida
State Museum.
To the west, Gulf Shores is home of the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo, which was
featured in a series on the network Animal Planet. The zoo is home to lions,
macaws, tigers, bears, monkeys and more, along with a reptile house and petting
zoo. Gulf Shores and Orange Beach also host year-round events, including APBA
powerboat races and musical acts held at the Amphitheater at the Wharf, where
there are great places to shop and dine.
While the Key’s natural beauty and many attractions mark it a vacation
destination, it also boasts many reasons to call the Key home. There are over 300
businesses in the Perdido Key Chamber. All necessary medical and dental services
are offered nearby, with several close, local hospitals and trauma centers. The island
is equipped with a fire station, and Escambia County schools are also in close
proximity to the island community. There are two island newspapers, The Pelican
and the Mullet Wrapper, that have been serving the local community for 10 years.
Between the tranquil waters, white-sand beaches, laid-back lifestyle, abundant
acreage of protected nature parks, and year-round cultural and fun-filled
happenings, Perdido Key is a great place to visit, but an even better place to stay
awhile. Be sure to turn to page 16 for a calendar of the Key’s annual events.

Whether you’re on the top deck at the Flora-B ama® or
a patio at the Reef , you can share your dining experience
on Perdido Key with ocean breezes and abundant, blue
sky. You’re likely to catch some live music at Hub Stace y’s
at the Point and other restaurants across the island: That’s
what dining on the Key is all about. You can even dock
your boat at Holiday Harbor, hop right out and enjoy a
bite from Sunset Grille , no car or parking lot necessary.
On menus across the island, you’ll find everything from
fresh, Gulf seafood to favorites like pizza. Many of
Perdido Key’s restaurants beckon “come as you are”—in
your swimsuit and flip-flops.
Whatever treats you’re craving and whatever restaurant
setting you desire, we’ve got what you’re looking for, and
getting there is pretty easy. From any location on the
island, there’s an enticing eatery close by. So, be sure to
stop in any one of the local eateries for a taste of the area’s
coastal cuisine and ask for a doggie bag for those
leftovers—they’ll be perfect for a picnic during your
island adventures the next day.

Activities
The essential is to excite the
spectators. If that means playing
Hamlet on a flying trapeze or in an
aquarium, you do it.
~Orson Welles
Recreation
&
Revelry
While it’s unlikely you’ll find an aquarium-side performance of
Hamlet on the Key, as a spectator of the island, you’re sure to be
entertained. With miles of unspoiled beaches, you can lose track
of time while soaking up the sun. Or, if you’re looking for
adventure, you can travel numerous nature trails at Big Lagoon
State Park or hike to the easternmost tip of the island and explore
the ruins at For t McRee. With the natural setting of the Key,
wildlife is abundant. Tarkiln Bayou State Park will put you right
in the middle of your surroundings and is also the home to
endangered plant species that are perfect for a study of nature. If
you’d rather not explore by foot, numerous boat ramps on the
island can put you out into Big Lagoon or the Gulf of Mexico for
exploration by sea with locally owned boat charter services like
Blue Dolphin Cruises. You can also canoe, kayak, and kite surf in
the sparkling, emerald waters. There’s plenty to do at night, too.
Catch live entertainment every night of the week at the FloraBama® and other Key locations. Perdido Key’s calendar of events
is full throughout the year—from the Frank Brown Inter national
Songwriters’ Festival hosted at the Silver Moon Songwriters
Café to numerous golf tournaments—to ensure that you have a
good time while you’re visiting.

Visitors to Perdido Key

when they come to enjoy our warm waters,
white beaches, cool breezes
and southern hospitality.
Those who stop by the
Visitor Information Center
know just what we mean.
The Visitor Information Center
is located in the middle
of Perdido Key State Park
amid miles of beautiful
natural Florida coastline.
It is staffed with friendly

and filled with helpful information

The Perdido Key Area
Chamber of Commerce
is a “hands on” organization
whose members can be sure that
inquiries about their products and

dedicated Chamber employees.
