Sunnyside, Florida, is minutes away from both the best of Panama City Beach and Scenic 30A. A long bridge crosses Lake Powell leading westward to Scenic 30A, the largest Coastal Dune Lake in Florida. These treasured bodies of water are located hardly anywhere else on earth. They feature abundant wildlife and fish due to an exotic mix of salted artisan spring water. Sugar-white sands line the gorgeous Gulf coast, and the area is known for an almost endless array of activities, including fishing, surfing, scuba diving, boating, and more.
Scenic 30A includes picturesque, perfectly planned coastal villages like Rosemary Beach, Alys Beach, and Seacrest Beach. There are excellent restaurants, scenic beach bars, local boutiques, outdoor concerts, and festivals.
The popular Pier Park in Panama City Beach is minutes away toward the east with a tropically landscaped avenue featuring a wide array of fantastic restaurants, beach bars, and world-class shopping. You can also find one of the longest piers on the entire Gulf, where you may fish or enjoy the views. Seasonal festivals are held at Pier Park throughout the year with food, drinks, and live music, often accompanied by vibrant displays of fabulous fireworks. An Amusement Park features an eighteen-hole miniature golf course, a Sky Trail Adult Ropes Course, a Tykes Ropes Course, and a giant 200’ tall SkyWheel that is in the center.
