Welcome to Margaritaville! Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville empire consists of four resorts, a soon to be opened vacation club on St. Thomas (USVI), many restaurants, as well as a product line that includes my favorite beach chair, the Adirondack. Here are some of the cool Margaritaville beach destinations!
Margaritaville in a nutshell. Margaritaville is a 1977 song by singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett from the album Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes. Named for the cocktail margarita, with lyrics reflecting a laid-back lifestyle in a tropical climate, Margaritaville has come to define Buffett’s music and career. Via Wikipedia.
Let’s start where it all began for Jimmy Buffet in Key West, Florida where he opened his first Margaritaville restaurant and bar on Duval Street in 1985.

Margaritaville Beach Hotel in Pensacola is another great Florida location. The place is a popular wedding venue with receptions held at the Landshark Landing restaurant and beach bar which sits right on the sand.
