My dad and i may be going to Florida mid march for a week (from michigan) and i was wondering if pensacola beach was open to metal detecting, this will be a metal detecting trip and our first time hunting a salt water beach, so i was wondering if pensacola was a safe place to go, i want to stay at a resort so we can just walk out to the beach and play. also whats the weather like in mid march? the average weather for mid march is about 65, is this acurate? and is the water cold? thanks for any info.
