30A may be home to some of the world’s most beautiful beaches, but it is also home to endless family fun! From paddleboarding on the many dune lakes to learning about sea creatures at Gulf World Marine Park, there is something for the whole family. The team at Paradise Properties has cultivated a list of kid-friendly things to do on 30A to make your trip go as smoothly as possible.
1. Spend a Day at the Beach
Kids and adults alike love to spend a day at the beach soaking up some rays. The kids can make sandcastles, swim, and more while the adults can lounge in the sun with a book or dip in the water as well! Some of the best beaches in 30A include Santa Rosa, Blue Mountain, and Crystal Beach.
2. Hike or Bike the 30A Trail
Explore the area by hiking or biking along the Timpoochee Trail. This 18.6-mile paved pathway winds past the dune lakes, state parks, and beach neighborhoods along 30A. Getting exercise while also enjoying stunning views? Sounds perfect to us! And don’t forget to keep an eye out for wildlife while on your hike or ride.
3. Go Paddleboarding on Coastal Dune Lake
Another fun-filled outdoor activity available in 30A is paddleboarding. This activity is perfect for daring older kids and teens. The Rental Shop or La Dolce Vita are great places to rent gear and also get some great paddleboarding tips!
4. See Creatures of the Sea at Gulf World
You’ll want to make time for Gulf World in Panama City Beach, especially when you’re traveling with kids. Gulf World is an aquarium, but it also features indoor and outdoor tropical gardens as well as several exhibits showcasing penguins, flamingos, sharks, sea turtles, and more.
5. Visit a 30A Farmers Market
During your family trip to 30A, be sure to stop by the Seaside Farmers Market. You can get a taste of local delicacies, while also discovering unique gifts. After a morning of sampling and shopping, you and the fam can lay a blanket down on the grass and listen to live music.

It’s hard to imagine a more paradisal Gulf Coast destination than Florida’s 30A, a 24-mile-long utopia known to many as the “Emerald Coast.” Despite boasting some of the nation’s most pristine white-sand beaches, 30A remains a semi-secretive hidden gem, dotted with idyllic Gulf-front communities, including Seagrove Beach. The region is known for its luxurious beachfront vacation rentals, many of which are managed by Paradise Properties. Seagrove Beach itself has more public beach access points than another 30A destination. However, when you book a stay in Paradise, you’ll instantly obtain private, unobstructed beach access to the Gulf of Mexico’s genuinely breathtaking shoreline.
A Fleet of Luxurious Seagrove Beach Rentals
While 30A is home to 24 miles of pristine public beach access, there’s just something magical about Seagrove Beach, a two-mile-long stretch of sand that feels more like a community rather than a popularized gathering place. Seagrove Beach sees much more foot traffic than other lengthier strands, providing a desirable level of security and a family-first atmosphere. Paradise Properties’ fleet of lavish Seagrove Beach rentals is within eyeshot of the Gulf. Some of our most beloved beachfront rentals include Eastern Shores, Sand Angels, and Leeward I, all of which feature private balconies that tower above the beachgrass and pearly sand. You’ll have no problem whatsoever earning a prime spot near the Gulf in the morning. Other on-site amenities include full kitchens, flat-screen televisions, and near-instant access to Seagrove Beach’s finest restaurants, shops, and attractions.
Plan a Genuinely Unforgettable Beach Day
Is there anything more relaxing and rejuvenating than a full day at the beach, especially amid such a heavenly destination? After embarking on an invigorating sunrise jog and sipping on a cup of java on your private balcony, gather the kids and slip down to Seagrove Beach for six to 10 hours of play in paradise. The Emerald Coast, thanks to its sugary sand and microalgae, provides near-perfect conditions for snorkeling. Commonly-spotted underwater critters include whiting, bluefish, ladyfish, blue runner, and sheepshead. Mom and Dad can sunbathe, people-watch, snap photos, and read while the kiddos swim, toss the Frisbee, fly kites, play with squirt guns, and, of course, build a mighty sandcastle. Seagrove Beach is also a splendid place to learn how to surf, paddleboard, or comb the beach.
Take a mid-day break with a well-planned beach picnic, complete with turkey sandwiches, ripe fruit, fresh vegetables, and perhaps some Veggie Straws or Sun Chips. Renting a Seagrove Beach rental has many perks, including the unique ability to take infrequent breaks back in your waterfront condo or villa.
