I visited in mid-October 2017, so this is shortly after the hurricane, but life was back to normal, no signs of it. The beach is fine. Some store fronts are closed/empty. I have mixed feelings about this place, not sure I like it or not.

We had a wonderful day boating on the intracoastal waterway. Loved seeing the $million plus homes. Stop and had lunch at a restaurant. Stopped and dropped a anchor on a sand bar and watched million dollar boats go bye.
