South Walton, Florida
Comprised of 15 distinct beach communities, the Beaches of South Walton are like no place on earth. Their 26 miles of sugar white sand are spectacular on their own ranking amongst the most unspoiled of the Gulf Coast as a whole. Yet when you add their individual ‘personalities’ to the mix this stretch of highway becomes an exceptional place to vacation. This area is so beloved that round blue stickers that say ‘30A’, the main road here, can be seen on hundreds of cars.
The communities range from being very popular and bustling – see Seaside famous for “The Truman Show” and its cottages in the shades of sweet tarts – to elegant and upscale – check out Alys Beach known for its ‘Greece meets Morocco’ architecture. Grayton Beach also deserves a visit. It’s gregarious and quirky people and their pets radiate a relaxed beach vibe reflected in the fun galleries and unique restaurants.
The beautiful thing about the Beaches of South Walton is that most of the communities are connected via a 17 mile bike path. Whether you bring or rent a bike, the ride past the beaches, the dune lakes – a rarity in the world by the way – and through the various communities is unforgettable. Annual events in Seaside and her sister towns range from wine to art festivals in fact there is usually some sort of fair or market going on every month. Popular communities include Seagrove Beach, Santa Rosa Beach, Rosemary Beach, Watercolor and Watersound.
