Life on Scenic Hwy 30A
It’s impossible to give a quick description of everything there is to see and enjoy on this 18 mile stretch that skirts the beaches of South Walton! This area of the panhandle is home to state parks and national wildlife areas that are ideal for camping, hiking, yolo boarding, kayaking, picnicking, biking or just hanging out.This area is full of many awesome restaurants that range from “funky fusion” to fine dining. Loads of great art galleries and the artists who fill them with their amazing work, great watering holes where you might see a celebrity, friends from home and always a good dose of our “local color”.
Scenic 30A is home to an array of award winning, amenity rich, luxury communities like Seaside, Watercolor, Watersound, Rosemary Beach and Alys Beach. There are also more traditional true “old Florida’ communities like Blue Mountain Beach, Grayton Beach and Seagrove Beach if that is your style. The diversity allows everyone to find something they like and keeps them coming back for more. The 11 coastal dune lakes along Scenic 30A offer views that are absolutely amazing and a unique ecosystem that is only found in a few places around the world.
We are constantly hearing newcomers to our beaches say they don’t understand why people would spend the extra money and travel time to go to the Caribbean islands when the same beautiful beaches are right here !!!
