A NOTE FROM THE EDITOR ON VOLUME 3

Woman in pink dress at helm of boat for The Scout Guide.

I could not have imagined the tremendous growth and sucess we’ve experienced since the launch of our inaugural volume. The making of this volume has been a year filled with scouting the best of local across the Gulf Coast, now all the way to Pensacola and Gulf Breeze.

This expansion represents a fantastic opportunity to further enrich the communities we serve. Pensacola, with its captivating blend of coastal beauty and Southern charm, is a natural fit for The Scout Guide Gulf Coast. We are eager to showcase the diverse talents, businesses, and treasures that this city has to offer.

We are committed to curating a guide that celebrates the essence of Gulf Coast living — all the way from the shores of Alabama, now to the sandy shores of Florida.

We are excited to connect with our members, old and new, and to amplify the voices of local artisans and entrepreneurs who make our region so vibrant.

Here’s to Volume 3 of The Scout Guide Gulf Coast, endless sunny days, emerald blue water, and to you, dear readers and champions of loving local.
