We take vacations not just to get away, but to add a dash of excitement to our everyday life. Routines are wonderful, but when you start to feel as if you’re in a rut, it’s time to do something different; a trip to 30A fits the bill nicely! And because we don’t believe in ordinary vacations, we’ve created this guide to three unique activities and attractions you can enjoy on your 30A getaway that will make your time away from home extraordinary!
Grayton Beach’s All-Natural Kiddie Pools
Finding things that the younger members of your family will enjoy can be difficult in your standard vacation, but in Florida, everything is simpler. Western Lake offers a shallow and wave-free spot for children to swim and have fun without adults having to worry about the young ones being frightened of the tide. Adults can wade through the shallows or sit on the beach watching their offspring have the time of their lives as they soak in the rays of the sun; this “kiddie pool” is an attraction to be enjoyed by everyone!
Movies Under the Stars at Eden Gardens
Imagine sitting under the great oak trees, the stars twinkling brightly overhead as you eat popcorn and watch a vintage movie. This magical experience takes place at Eden Gardens on select nights! Stake your spot on the grass with a blanket or lawn chairs—if you get there before sunset, you’ll get two shows for the price of entry into the park! The movies don’t play every night, so checking the state park website will give you the details of what’s playing and when. One movie that plays quite often is the movie Frogs; filmed in the 70s right here at Eden Gardens, it’s a fascinating glimpse into the past!
Experience Digital Graffiti in Alys Beach
Graffiti is no longer something unappreciated and painted over by authorities; it has become a legitimate artform, and variations such as this digital graffiti show in Alys Beach have been popping up all over the world! Held every May (2020’s festival will take place May 15th & 16th), talented artists use the white walls of Alys Beach’s buildings to create art from color and light. The show will take your breath away and give you a new appreciation of the new twist given to one of the world’s oldest art forms.
