Besides cruising up and down Emerald Coast Parkway stopping in at places like Harborwalk Village in Destin or the charming Village of Baytowne Wharf at Sandestin you will truly enjoy "jeeping" down Scenic 30A. This sensational two lane road meanders along the glistening gulf for about eighteen miles beside the sugary shores. The scenic corridor hugs the forested Gulf of Mexico coastline with breathtaking views of sugar white sand beaches and luminescent emerald hued waters. You will want to pull the jeep over to make pit stops along the way since it passes through a number of picturesque beach side communities. Running west to east these include Dune Allen, Santa Rosa Beach, Blue Mountain Beach, Grayton Beach, Watercolor, Seaside, Seagrove Beach, Watersound, Alys Beach, Seacrest and Rosemary Beach. Each picture perfect town offers its own unique personality with individual architectural features and lifestyles. There are great restaurants, unique boutiques, galleries and lots of shopping adventures along the way.
You may want to stop your Jeep somewhere along the way and have a picnic on the beautiful beach since Scenic 30A has been awarded an esteemed double distinction. First of all the state selected this route as a one of a favored few Florida Scenic Highways due to its natural beauty. Secondly, this gorgeous route travels beside shores that are designated as a Blue Wave Beach, which is the nation's highest honor for cleanliness and beauty. There are numerous public access points along the way, many of which are below sand dunes that rise up from the edge of the gulf in this special part of the world. Precious Coastal Dune Lakes parallel the coast. These exotic bodies of water are found in only three other places in the world which include Madagascar, Australia and New Zealand. They support a huge variety of wildlife due to the combination of fresh and salt water which varies as inlets open up or close off to the gulf. Most are undeveloped and protected with almost 25,000 total acres of state forests, preserves or parks that stretch across this scenic route. Sensational seascapes border these pristine forested lakes from beginning to end. At Draper Lake you cross into the rolling hills of Blue Mountain Beach which marks the highest elevation in the United States on the Gulf of Mexico.
Three amazing state parks parallel the coast here which include Topsail with "towering" twenty-five foot dunes, award winning Grayton Beach and forested Deer Lake which is named for the doe that are sometimes seen eating golden Sea Oats near the shore. Grayton Beach State Park is particularly lovely since Scenic 30A crosses Western Lake which borders the forest on one side and runs all the way to the gulf towards the south. A narrow isthmus that crosses the lake in the middle leads into Watercolor. This community is aptly named since this locale experiences spectacular sunsets from fall thru early spring that are colorfully mirrored in the calm lake waters. Imagine the serene yet exhilarating feeling you will have cruising along in your Jeep with the top down while experiencing such sensational scenery. The gentle alabaster colored dunes and shimmering gulf on the beach side of Western Lake complete this picture which is heavenly to gaze upon. Couples and families can be seen here enjoying nature aboard their kayaks, canoes and even paddle boards.
