Watercolor is a breath of fresh air and perfect for that romantic weekend get a way or the perfect family vacation. No matter what you have planned Watercolor will provide it for you.

Just the name conjures up beautiful watercolor paintings by famous artists, and that is exactly what you will see when you arrive. It is beautiful in design with a gorgeous private beach and paths around the resort for your walking pleasure. What a wonderful way to admire Mother Nature at its best and still be able to breathe in the wonderful aromas of the ocean or the flowers that surround the property.

The St. Joe company is the creator of this beautiful resort and as a result, it has been listed as one of the “World’s Best Hotels for Families,” also coming in at #2 in the United States according to readers of Travel + Leisure magazine. It is a peaceful quaint resort but still boasts all the modern comforts to their guests. Guests have appreciated the personal attention they have received from their top notch staff. Once you arrive you are treated to a vacation that you will always remember and return year after year as so many of their guests do.

The resort has activities for adults and children alike. They offer water activities, excellent golf courses for the avid golfer, and incredible shopping is incredible: something for everyone! The Inn also has a beautiful relaxing and rejuvenating spa. The resort truly provides something for everyone, young and old, and will keep your days and evenings full and occupied. The greatest amenity though is provided by Mother Nature herself, with the stunning waters of the Emerald Coast only a few steps away from town.

The resort’s signature restaurant Fish out of Water is also a must-visit while staying in Watercolor.
