As another beach vacation season quickly approaches, the turn of the calendar page shows that America’s birthday is just around the corner, and if you haven’t made any plans yet, it’s ok; we have some ideas that are just for you! And yes, we are thinking that a 30A getaway is the perfect 4th of July retreat, but there’s so much more to our plans. When you follow this guide, you are promised a vacation that is filled with fun and fulfilling. It’s summer in Florida, does it really get any better than this? The answer is yes, especially when you choose to stay in one of our Paradise 30A holiday escapes for 4th of July on 30A!

All-American Breakfast

Because breakfast can be fun, we suggest putting a patriotic spin on your morning meal, and mixed berry pancakes topped with whip cream offer a red, white, and blue wake up your family will never forget! Simply prepare the batter the way you normally would but add frozen blueberries and raspberries to the mix; stir, pour, and flip, adding whip cream once you’ve plated the pancakes, and your day is off to a delicious start. Our kitchens are designed to take the chores out of meal prep, something you’re about to discover!

Water Fun

Summer can be hot here on the panhandle, but since it’s still a few hours until the main event (parades and fireworks!), why not spend the early part of the day swimming in the pool—or better yet, frolicking in the Gulf! Whichever water source you decide on, your week of fun during the 4th of July is destined to be the most memorable one yet as you sip on your favorite drinks, practice your dives in the pool, and swim like a fish in the emerald waters of the coast!

Parade of Patriotism

The best holidays are accompanied by a parade of fun, and the South Walton 4th of July Parade, starting at 8 AM, is one of our favorites! Held in the Seaside community, it offers everything you love about a parade: floats, clowns, marching bands, classic cars, plus so much more. Come early to stake your space and plan on an evening of laughter, happiness, and family!

Filling the Sky with Color

In our mind, the best part of the holiday is the explosion of fireworks that light up the sky. When you stay in one of our Paradise 30A 4th of July escapes, your chances to ooh and ahh are multiplied! The Alys Beach 4th of July on 30A Concert and Fireworks allows guests to get out there and enjoy an evening of fun with the crowds, but if you don’t like crowds, staying home and viewing the show from the balcony is just as exciting. No need to worry about transportation or putting on shoes; simply walk outside with a glass of wine and enjoy the show that unfolds before you! Contact us today to reserve your stay on 30a or on Watersound Beach..

As you begin planning your once in a lifetime family trip to Florida’s Emerald Coast, you may begin to feel some faint feelings of worry. No one knows more than you the difficulties of trying to find activities that EVERYONE in your family can enjoy! Well, because you made the right choice in picking Paradise Properties for your vacation accommodations, we want to show our gratitude by ensuring your entire traveling party has a magical and memorable 30A vacation, and this guide is how we are going to do so!

Dining Out

Hunger pangs can make you irritable, and if you’re traveling with younger children, keeping them fed and happy is a must; these family-friendly restaurants allow you to do so while feeling comfortable and accepted! Stinky’s Fish Camp at 5960 W County Highway 30A offers more than a funny name which your kids will love; it’s known for serving the best seafood in the area in a relaxed atmosphere. Lunch at Redd’s Fueling Station (2320 W County Highway 30A) features thick and juicy burgers and happy music. And because breakfast doesn’t always have to be eggs and bacon, the Donut Hut at 4042 E County Highway 30A, Santa Rosa Beach is the sweetest way to start your vacation days during your stay in Florida!

Time to Play

Of course, the beach is the perfect family activity, offering something different for every person who visits, but the Gulf isn’t the only water game in town; Shipwreck Island Water Park at 12201 Hutchinson Blvd. in Panama City Beach is one of our favorite places to spend a day with the family! Featuring many play areas that include slides, rides, and of course, pools, a stop here may end up being the highlight of your trip!

When it’s time to visit the beach, sand castle lessons offered by Beach Sand Sculptures will help you create magical structures out of sand as you bond with your family in ways you never dreamed possible. Coming to you at your favorite beach and costing $220 for groups of 1-5 people, it only takes one class to discover what fabulous structures you are capable of creating!

Dreams Come True During a 30A Vacation

You may be hoping this family vacation will draw you closer together; staying in our fantastic Paradise Properties’ homes will offer moments you will never forget! Grill the catch of the day on the back patio, watch movies together on the big screen televisions in the living areas, or simply sit on the deck listening to the music of the waves crashing against the sugar white sands of our beautiful home town. These are just a few of the magical memories you can make when you stay in one of our vacation rentals. Reserve one of our weekly rentals and begin your 30A vacation today!
