Tuning into your Beachbilly Lifestyle

Raise your hand if you feel like summer has been a whirlwind of flying by the seat of your pants like a bird with a questionable sense of direction and a misplaced GPS.


If you’re raising your hands into the air like me, it might be time to tune into your inner beachbilly.

What’s a beachbilly? A beachbilly is any person who loves the beach, woods, farming and all things simple. It’s a style, a lifestyle, a way of life. It’s love, family, good times and great friends.

Josh Brown, Perdido Key resident and creator of Beachbilly Lifestyle, believes everybody needs a little sunshine and simplicity. What started as an idea and Youtube series that documented Josh Brown and his family’s ‘off-the-grid’ lifestyle, has now turned into a clothing brand and brand new TV show that will be streaming on Roku, Amazon Fire TV and Apple TV starting July 15.

The new series will follow Josh and his family as they go from moving off-the-grid to starting a lifestyle brand about country living on the beach. Josh and his family will take adventures to the Florida Keys up to  Nashville, Tennessee and learn how other Beachbillies live the lifestyle and witness the growth of a brand along the way.

“With all the negativity in the world, I hope that people who watch Beachbilly Lifestyle will see us as a shining light of fun entertainment and education.  My hope is that after people watch the show, they will be inspired to chase their dream and follow their passions.” said Josh Brown.

“My passion was to change the life of my family and it turned into a clothing brand.  The series will give people insight into our journey from off-the-grid living to creating a brand and having fun along the way.”

While Josh’s new series might not take place in Perdido Key like many of his other YouTube videos, his love for his hometown community is always top of mind.

“Perdido Key is special to me and to the brand because it is where Beachbilly Lifestyle was created. The community of Perdido Key has backed us all along the way of growing the brand and the people of Perdido Key have been some of our biggest cheerleaders and fans, Josh said.

To know Josh, is to know the Beachbilly lifestyle. From the moment you meet him, you understand the authenticity of the brand and the passion he has for not only the content he’s creating, but for his community and his family.

“It’s hard to pinpoint one favorite part about filming the series.  I truly enjoyed the entire journey…traveling, getting to meet Beachbillies from Nashville to Key West, and making so many connections along the way,” said Josh.

“I loved being able to make memories with my family through filming.  We were given so many opportunities for adventures that probably wouldn’t have happened had it not been for the show. Looking back on all the filming, I have been able to re-watch my children grow up.”

Thank you Josh for reminding us all to slow down a little and embrace our inner beachbillies. We look forward to taking it easy with you and your family while we tune in this weekend.
