Pensacola Beach Business

What's good for beach businesses:
  • A slumping national economy and a weak dollar
  • Drug wars in Mexico and the Cuban embargo
  • Rainy, cold weather that drives tourists away from the shore
  • Store closings in nearby Gulf Breeze
  • Short vacation allowances by schools and employers
  • Unique product inventories unavailable elsewhere
  • El Niño
What's bad for beach businesses:
  • A strong dollar and cheap air fare to Europe
  • Peace in Granada and the imminent lifting of travel restrictions to Cuba
  • Hot, sunny weather that keeps people at the shore
  • Generous vacation allowances by employers and summer school dismissals
  • The Internet
  • La Niña
