Spring on 30A | 3 Things Every Vacationer Must Do

Number 1: Paddle, Picnic, & Beach Bonfire

Paddle Boarding 30A things to do

If you're going to truly experience the uniqueness of what South Walton has to offer -- and what makes "30A" so different, you'll have to get outside the normal exploration areas and jump on a paddle board! With super-rare coastal dune lakes (like the one you drive over to to get Watercolor) that are perfect for family excursions.... so grab a paddle board rental from your local Yolo shop and make your way out to the beach! Gulf Place and Grayton Beach are great spots!

After you work up an appetite, run back to your beach chair setup and have a family picnic (if you're ahead of the game, you can grab a charcuterie board from @Graze30a or a plan a fancy picnic from @Coastalpicnics)

And for the ultimate end-of-day experience, book a full-package beach bonfire from our friends at Beach Brothers or 30A Blaze to roast marsh-mellows with friends and good music as the sun sets over the beachscape.

Number 2: Sunrise - Explore - Sunset

Wake up early with friends for Sunrise at the beach - 6-7am. Pro tip: Bring a big warm coffee.

Explore topsail, Grayton Beach, Camp Helen, or Point Washington. South Walton is home to incredibly beautiful state parks and preserves that are often overlooked by many visitors. Checkout one or all of them for hikes and exploring! Pro tip: Rent an electric bike!

Sunset with a loved one from 7-8pm. As the sun sets, head back out to the beach for an epic end to the day. Pro tip: pack a little bite to eat or even a little wine. PS - no glass allowed on beach.

Number 3: Local Music @ A local Hang
