Carrie, there are several great areas at the beaches, but one that I would recommend is Sawgrass. There are some very affordable nice homes within the community. It is gated, with sidewalks where you will find many walkers, runners and bikers. Of course there is golf and tennis. The beach is close by, great shopping and there are great restaurants and nightlife close as well. There are some great buys in Sawgrass right now!
