Winding along the Gulf of Mexico, nestled in the heart of the Florida Panhandle, is a little road called Scenic Highway 30A. It's a tranquil, very unique area, home to award-winning beaches, architecture, amazing food, and an abundance of nature. Those lucky enough to have discovered this destination enjoy an unmatched level of relaxation and a return to simpler times. Here bright lights and traffic jams give way to long walks and bike rides. This 26-mile stretch of coastline is home to a handful of distinct neighborhoods sprinkled with boutiques, shops, restaurants, and art galleries.
West to East, each "town" has a vibe all its own - here are the main communities of South Walton's 30A.
We start with Dune Allen, framed by coastal dune lakes and long, straight, gentle stretches of road, then on to Santa Rosa Beach, with a little something for everyone, golf, trails, beaches, and more. Blue Mountain Beach is next on the list and is a step quieter, a little less populated, and full of nature. Grayton Beach is one of the most historically significant places around, dating back to the 19th Century. WaterColor is the new kid on the block, where the classic cracker style design is elevated to a grand scale. Seagrove Beach is home to some of the highest-priced real estate and some of the most beautiful architecture in the country. Further east, we come to Seacrest Beach, a most relaxing place, with quiet secluded beaches balanced with lots of activity off the shore. We finish at Inlet Beach; the beaches here are wide and serene, it's one of the most natural, unpopulated places on 30A.
