Top 5 Things to Do on 30A in South Walton FL When You Stay in Our Rentals

 

Highway 30A takes you past some of the most breathtaking scenery in Northwest Florida. When you stay in the South Walton-30A area, you’ll be able to enjoy both white-sand beaches with the emerald waters of the Gulf, plus wetlands and marshes that are full of wildlife. While you’re here, there are so many activities for you to try! Here are the top 5 things to do on 30A in South Walton FL:

1. Ride the 30A Bike Trail

Timpoochee Trail is 30A’s 19-mile paved bike path that runs parallel to the scenic road and passes through all the famous beach communities. You’ll get to enjoy a scenic bike ride past coastal dune lakes and see parts of South Walton you can’t see from a car. If you don’t want to ride the whole length of the trail, you can pick up the path anywhere along 30A. It’s a great opportunity to see the sights and enjoy some fresh air.

2. Fish or Kayak the Coastal Dune Lakes

Coastal Dune Lakes are extremely rare, only occurring in a handful of locations around the world — and South Walton is one of those locations! South Walton has 15 coastal dune lakes along its 26 miles of coastline, and they are the perfect spot for both fishing and kayaking! A Florida fishing license is required to fish on the lakes, and most of the fishing is freshwater, though saltwater species have been found as well. Common fish that are caught are bream, bass, catfish, flounder and mullet. For some fun out on the water, rent a kayak to take out on the lakes! It’s a great way to soak up the sunshine during a relaxing adventure.

3. Enjoy Dinner with a View

There are many dining options along 30A that not only offer a delicious meal, but a great view as well! Whether you’re planning a romantic date or just a family dinner, you’ll be able to find a tasty restaurant. One of the best restaurants to dine at is Bud & Alleys, a waterfront restaurant with a rooftop bar. The menu features Gulf coast classics paired with Southern-style cuisine, like crab cakes, filet mignon and seafood gumbo. After your meal, head to the rooftop bar and grab a drink while you watch the sunset.

4. Go Shopping

There are so many shopping opportunities along 30A. There are numerous local shops where you can find unique gifts. It’s a great area to find the perfect souvenir to take back home! Take your kids to Duckies Shop of Fun to find entertaining toys and beach gear, or head to Maui Waves for a one-of-a-kind surf shop experience. There is also Golden Seashell, where you can find all your beach necessities, from beach chairs, to rafts, to flip flops!
