Happy first day of spring!
Spring is a great reminder of how beautiful change can be, especially here on the coast. Colder weather fades into warm sunlit days. Blue lupine flowers decorating our protected dunes burst into bloom. The quietness of our quaint beach towns gives way to the hustle and bustle of larger beach-happy crowds. It is a wonderful time of year, and what better place to celebrate than on the Emerald Coast? Whether you are a local, visiting for spring break, or simply on vacation, you will love spending this time of year in this favorite Gulf Coast spot.
Of course, the beach should always be your first stop. Powder-white sand stretches for miles beneath your bare feet, while smooth emerald waves greet the shore. The opportunities for fun on these perfect beaches are endless. Relax in the sand with a good book, while soaking up some sun. Grab the kids, shovels, and buckets and get to work creating a sandcastle masterpiece. Explore the world beneath the clear waters armed with a snorkel and curious mind. After a day in town, take an evening stroll with your special someone, while enjoying a magical sunset. Gather your friends and family and spend a memorable evening laughing and telling stories around a beach bonfire. Sounds like a perfect way to start your spring, don’t you think?
Besides the beach, South Walton and the 30A area offer a variety of fun activities that appeal to locals and vacationers of all ages. If you are in town with the girls, hit up one of the many luxury spas and salons in the area. From massages to manicures, you will enjoy this much-needed relaxation time. Explore the many coastal shopping areas, from classy boutiques along 30A to Sandestin’s outlet mall. Find your new favorite restaurant and get your seafood fix while enjoying a spectacular view. Or, check out the event schedule to find the activities that you, your family, and friends will want to experience!
