Ohioans Jacqueline and Robb Brown spend numerous weeks every year at their second home in WaterColor, Florida, along the Gulf Coast. “We had never seen anything like WaterColor. People walk and ride bikes. It’s very kid-friendly, so our two daughters [Brennan and Devan, now 17 and 20] could do their own thing,” says Robb. “And there are no nicer beaches anywhere!”
The porch of their new home is a favorite place to watch sunsets and chat by the fire.
