Is this a DPZ community that you know of (one of the first New Urbanists)? It looks like it.

Nah, it was founded way back in the 18 or 1900s. Originally named Long Island, and renamed later on. It's a nice town, but no mixed use as far as I know. It's all shopping centers, houses, hotels, and condos :thumbsup:

Great shots TUrban ! Thanks for sharing all of those. I really like the bridge pics. Very impressive. And I like the walk to the beach between the village. I like the marsh pic too, reminds me of the coastal sections Louisiana or Mississippi

.photos snipped.

Man, those are some great photos. That resort actually looks nicer than the Sandals Resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica... the property anyway. Not sure about the beachfront. :)
