10 VISITPERDIDO.COM More than 60 percent of Perdido Key is composed of state and national parks, forever preserved for public use. They protect nature and limit development of our coastal community. The Gulf Islands National Seashore has access to both the Gulf of Mexico and Big Lagoon on the Intracoastal. Waterway. This quiet oasis is perfect for anyone looking to relax with family, friends or even take a getaway alone. As soon as you cross the Theo Baars Bridge and are on the island, the laid-back feeling of the Key overtakes you, and you finally know what "running on island time" feels like. The relaxed feel of the locals is infectious, and the miles of state and national park land lend a hand to the island's remoteness. So turn off that alarm, put your phone on silent, and let the cool island breeze wash over you like a wave of relaxation. If you live on the island, drop by the Perdido Key Visitors Center (15500 Per- dido Key Drive) to pick up your Hurricane Pass. This allows you to return to your home on Perdido Key should authorities close either bridge - Theo Baars or Perdido Pass. To obtain your pass, simply provide your license and proof of residence (power bill, lease agreement, etc.).
