Safe And Fun Destin/30-A Vacation To-Do-List

La Dolce Vita

During these times it’s important to be safe. While at the same time it’s also important to stay healthy and active as well. Therefore, we’ve compiled the Top 5 Things-To-Do in the 30-A area that offer safe and fun activities for you and your family.

1 Bike the Timpoochee Trail

You can bike the Timpoochee Trail from any point along the 18 miles stretch of scenic highway 30-A. It’s easy to get around and it’s for all ages. On the far western end, the bike path starts near Topsail Hill Preserve State Park known for serene beaches and tree-lined dune lakes. 

A couple miles eastward, you’ll find Gulf Place which has many cafes and restaurants ready to serve you. Here you can stop for raw oysters at Shunk Gulley, homemade pralines at Pecan Jack’s, or a refreshing craft beer at Growler Garage. 

As you make your way down 30-A, you’ll find each community has its own brand of charm. Check out local art in The Shops of Grayton and some of the best baked treats around at Black Bear Bread Company. 

No matter how you choose your adventure, a bike tour of 30-A is a must.

2 Kayak or Paddle Board The Gulf

When staying in South Walton, there’s nothing more safe and distancing than paddle boarding on the Gulf. This guarantees a whole new perspective of the Emerald Coast. Out in the open water it’s very common to see Manta Rays, Sea Turtles and Dolphins up close! 

Paddle out from Grayton Beach State Park and you can see more species of incredible marine life in the artificial reef situated off shore. You can’t beat paddle boarding as an incredible form of exercise for mind, body, and soul.

3 Rent a Pontoon Boat

Mere minutes off 30-A, renting a pontoon boat in SanDestin is a great way to explore the Choctawhatchee Bay.  Simply pack a cooler, towels, and toys for a day of fun out on the water.

4 Cruise 30-A in a Golf Cart

There’s something about taking a spin on a golf cart that makes everyone smile. Having one makes every trip around town fun.

Grab ice cream with the family at Blue Mountain Creamery if you are on the west end. Or if you are staying close enough by, take your rented golf cart down to Rosemary Beach for some of the best cuisine on 30-A.

 5 Relax on the Beach

Maybe you don’t need reminding, but the #1 must-do activity when vacationing on 30-A is to spend the whole day with your toes in the sand. Nothing recharges the soul as much as feeling that cooling sea breeze, dipping in our crystal clear waters and napping in those panhandle rays. 

Make your day easier and enjoyable by having a complete beach chair and umbrella waiting for your arrival. Our friendly staff will be waiting for you. All you need to do is show up!
