Has anybody been down to the gulf coast for vacation this Summer?

I want to know if it's still worth going or if the oil spill has ruined the beaches.

I just got back from Alabama and we stayed in Guld Shores and went to Dauphin Island, AL. There maybe oil but still plenty to do. You can still go to the beach and get in the sun. Most condos/hotels have swimming pools, plus there are small water parks dotted all down the coast from Gulfport, Ms to at least Destin, Fl. I just wish I could go back sooner!

Port Aransas, TX was amazing 4th of July weekend. Beaches were great, surf was nice during the storms. All had a blast from 2 yrs to 16yrs old.

We were recently at Crystal Beach, Tx and it was fine. Of course tropical storm Alex blew in on our last day there and I heard that some people had found tar balls on the beach. A friend of ours just got back last week and she said it was beautiful.

We went to Surfside Beach near Lake Jackson over Memorial Day. Sand and water was absolutely fine. But the mosquitoes were TERRIBLE--worst I have ever experienced. We had to race to and from the car because they would attack us. We won't be going back anytime soon--hate spraying crap all over myself just to go outside for a few minutes.

Everything that's happened is so sad and I want to support everybody. I'm just worried it will not be fun for us. :(
