Lillian, on Perdido Bay (Gulf Coast Alabama)

Lillian is a small town on Perdido Bay, just across the state line from Pensacola, Florida. It is in the economically booming southern part of Baldwin County, which is usually the first or second fasting growing county in Alabama. It is great here because it is more laid back and more of a community than the resort and condominium-oriented cities of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. Even though we have been bombarded by lots of hurricanes, and lots of old growth oaks were destroyed, we were pretty lucky in not having major flooding during the storms. It just seems that the surge doesn't get this far up the bay, and most of the area is high anyway. I live right across the street from the water on Boykin Blvd. at an elevation of 8' and have never had any water across the street. Lillian has a post office, Dollar General Store, good resturants including Greens and Chubby's two MD's, pharmacy, 5 title loan stores and 2 porn shops (because they are illegal in Florida and we're right on the line), and lots of other businesses. There are Baptist, Methodist, Catholic and Episcopalian, Fundamental Baptist, and another church. There are 2 Optimist Clubs, Optimist Club of Perdido Bay for the men and Lillian Optimist Club for the gals. The Lillian Community Club is a meeting place for community events including the annual mullet toss and other events. There is a park with baseball diamonds, a mile walking trail, and soon to be professional horseshoe ring. It is nice that Lillian is in Alabama which has the cheapest property taxes in the nation, and we can go to Florida for groceries which have no sales tax there. Greer's Food Tiger is the closest supermarket, which is competative with Winn Dixie or Wall Mart, a few miles further away. I love my home here. I was a general aviation pilot for several years and flew all over the country, and I can tell you, there is no better place (to me) than Baldwin County, and no better place in Baldwin County than Lillian!
