Emerald Coast

From Openwaterpedia

The Emerald Coast is euphemistic name (much more commonly known by the colloquial sobriquet, "Redneck Riviera") for the coastal area in the U.S. state of Florida on the Gulf of Mexico that stretches about 100 miles (160 km) through five counties, Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Walton, and Bay, from Pensacola to Panama City. Some South Alabama communities on the coast of Baldwin County embrace the term as well.
