Tourist season is among us, friends! Oftentimes when you meet a person or family that is visiting 30A, they will tell you that they are frequent visitors and their 30A summer vacation has become a standing tradition. That’s pretty special when you stop to really think about it – out of all of the places that a given family could spend a vacation, they choose to keep coming back to 30A. They fall so in love with the community on their first visit that they can’t help but keep coming back for more. So, what makes 30A so lovable?

The 30A locals are pretty famous for their hospitality, wouldn’t you say? Wherever you go on 30A, you are always greeted by a friendly face and a smile and that goes a long way in most people’s books. The locals along 30A really go the extra mile to make visitors of the community welcome and it’s obviously making a lasting impression.

The All-Inclusive Vibe

30A is basically like a long stretch of individual all-inclusive resort communities and that is one of the biggest things that draws tourists in. People love the idea of coming on a vacation where all they need is a good pair of walking shoes and a bicycle and they have everything they need right at their fingertips. There are farmer’s markets on every corner, beautiful beaches within walking distance and family friendly events happening everywhere you turn – no car required! No wonder they keep coming back.

The Beautiful Beaches

There is no denying it – South Walton and 30A is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world and that is reason enough for some people to come back time and again. Experiencing a perfect beach day on 30A is indeed love at first sight. The emerald green waters and pristine white sand is enough to have tourists planning their next vacation before they even hit the road back father-656734_1920 (1)home.

Oh, the food. The food on 30A is enough to cast a love spell on the tourists (and the locals, for that matter). In fact, I’ve fallen madly in love with almost every restaurant I’ve visited along 30A, so there is no doubt that there are some foodies out there that book their 30A summer vacation each year with one thing in mind – the food!
