Travelers hoping to take time away from busy schedules and enjoy a place where beauty, tranquility, and fun can be found in equal measure will find all they’re looking for and more along Florida’s Highway 30A. This stretch of coast offers up captivating scenery combined with options for exploring and enjoying a collection of charming coastal communities. Whether you’re one for time on the beach, or a traveler that prefers to encounter historic and scenic landmarks along the way, 30A is brimming over with opportunities to do both. While it can be fun to visit this area with family and friends, 30A is also a destination that’s solo traveler friendly. When you’re crafting that independent itinerary, be sure to add these 30A activities to the list.
Take Time to Walk Through Seaside
There’s nothing quite like a stroll through Seaside to get you in a Florida state of mind. This picturesque coastal community along 30A is well worth an afternoon of simply wandering and browsing. Here, visitors will be able to immerse themselves in a space that comes complete with pristine oceanside pavilions, cobblestone pathways, small cottages, and storefronts as well as parks that seem picked out of a fairytale. The design of this small town is intentional and is categorized as New Urbanism. The plans were laid out at the hands of Robert and Daryl Davis in 1981 and to this day, continues to beckon to travelers looking to make the most of magazine-worthy views and amazing ambiance around every corner.
Enjoy time at Grayton Beach
Settled between Blue Mountain and Sea Grove is the well-loved destination known as Grayton Beach. A trip along 30A isn’t complete without time spent on the sand and if you have to choose just one to enjoy during your solo trip, this is it. Grayton Beach is adored for its timeless terrain and options to bike along the beach or explore the nearby cafes and boutiques. The beach is surrounded by Grayton Beach State Park meaning visitors can extend an afternoon beach visit into a day of hiking and exploring if the inspiration hits.
Book with Rolling Tide Charters
While admiring the waters along 30A is inspiring, there’s nothing quite like getting out on the waves and seeing what you can reel in. Consider booking an experience with Rolling Tide Charters while you’re in town. This company specializes in guided offshore and inshore fishing experience near South Walton.
