'Margaritaville' Community Coming to Watersound

Watersound, Fla. - You can nibble on spongecake and watch the sun bake your neighbors at a newly proposed Margaritaville community in the 30A area. 

" Master developer Minto Communities USA, global lifestyle brand Margaritaville Holdings and The St. Joe Company have combined their resources to pursue the development of a new LATITUDE MARGARITAVILLE active adult community in Florida’s Panhandle region to be located in Bay County near Panama City Beach and the scenic 30A corridor," according to a news release. "The community is projected to open in early 2020."

Margaritaville is the lifestyle brand of singer Jimmy Buffett. A restaurant of the same name and other business ventures are part of the 'Maragaritaville' brand. Buffett's 1977 song of the same name peaked at 13 on the country charts and became a summer staple for beachgoers and beach businesses. 

LATITUDE MARGARITAVILLE Watersound is the third of the communities to be developed, officials wrote. The first two LATITUDE MARGARITAVILLE communities opened in Daytona Beach, Florida and Hilton Head, South Carolina.

"Latitude Margaritaville is the ideal destination for those looking to live the Margaritaville lifestyle as they grow older, but not up," officials wrote. "The communities will feature a resort-style pool, fitness activities, game and hobby rooms, arts and learning programs, live entertainment, signature Margaritaville food and beverage concepts, and more."
