South Walton

  • Quiet beach towns dot the 26-mile stretch of powder-white sands in South Walton. This quaint setting boasts eclectic shops, artists' colonies, Gulf-to-table cuisine and spectacular sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico.

    The quiet communities make our Santa Rosa & South Walton Beach rentals a truly peaceful vacation experience. While you won't find trendy nightclubs here, you will find unique restaurants and galleries, hot blues and jazz acts, and even a dueling piano bar within proximity of our Beaches of South Walton rentals. For more shopping, dining and entertainment options, a quick drive down Scenic Highway 30A will take you straight to the action in Panama City Beach, Destin and Fort Walton Beach.

    5 Things to Do

    South Walton Beaches Wine and Food Festival
    One of the Top 10 Wine Auctions in the nation, this charity event draws a dazzling roster of celebrity winemakers, distillers, chefs, brew masters and entertainers to South Walton to wine, dine, educate and entertain guests as part of this four-day celebration of wine and food throughout the Town Center of Grand Boulevard. Sip and savor more than 800 wines poured by knowledgeable wine industry insiders. Be sure to stop by the Rose All Day tent, sponsored by ResortQuest, for the on-trend drink of the season (and some really neat swag).

    Bud & Alley’s Waterfront Restaurant
    Voted Best Rooftop Bar and Restaurant by Coastal Living magazine, South Walton’s first restaurant is an iconic landmark that has been a trusted tradition since 1986. A pioneer of the farm- and sea-to-table movement in Northwest Florida, Bud & Alley’s commitment to fresh ingredients is why it is a top Florida restaurant. Guess the exact time of sunset at the chime of the bell that signals another perfect day in Seaside and win a free cocktail.

    Scenic Highway 30-A
    Spanning 24 miles through 16 distinctive beach towns, Scenic Highway 30-A brings travelers through our white-sand beaches and rare coastal dune lakes, almost all of it with accompanying trails. If your rental comes with bike rentals included, this is a great way to explore the area. If not, check out one of the local bike vendors, or go high-tech with a motorized pedal bike tour with Eventure.

    The Zoo Gallery
    An eclectic collection of original art curated from across the country, hand-crafted pottery, funky furniture, jewelry, accessories and apparel make The Zoo Gallery a favorite among locals and vacationers. One of the first retailers in Northwest Florida, this family owned and operated business is big on gracious customer service. Bonus, it’s just down the street from one of our coastal dune lakes where you can drop your paddle board in and, depending on the status of the lake, paddle right out to the Gulf.

    The Artists of 30-A
    Grayton Beach is home to the first-ever art festival in South Walton. So, it’s no surprise that the colorful cottages clustered in the Shops of Grayton on County Road 283 have become a haven for artists. This quaint alcove is home to an array of award-winning local painters, jewelry makers, glass makers and photographers. And with tasty eateries like Hurricane Oyster Bar & Grill and Black Bear Bread Co., you can indulge in delicious food and sweet treats, too. Each month the First Friday Art Walk is a great time to browse the galleries and studios, meet the artists, an enjoy refreshments and live music.
