30A: Paradise is Just a Drive Away

Life is always better when you are only a few hours drive away from the coast. And when you live in one of the southeastern cities – like Atlanta, Birmingham, Montgomery, or Dothan – you are within an easy drive of the 30A beaches of Walton County, Florida.

What lies along this short strip of beach road (between Panama City Beach and Destin) are several ‘jewels’ — Rosemary Beach, Alys Beach, Seacrest, Watercolors, and Seaside, to name a few of the more well known. Each of these communities represents a step back in time… when everyone moved a bit slower.

The Seaside community has actually been a movie backdrop for its idyllic feel – serving as the pristine community in the film, The Truman Show, featuring Jim Carey.

Though all communities along the 30A beaches have lots to offer a family on vacation, our family found and adopted Rosemary Beach as our ‘home away from home’ about 10 years ago. Since that time, we have returned there twice a year… once in the spring to kick off the summer, and then again in the late fall to bring the family together for a holiday escape.

For a lazy, family getaway, 30A makes for the perfect destination. Check out 30A rentals for more details.
