"Slices of 30A"

Our family has owned our beach cottage in Seagrove since May of 2002. We have traveled many miles going back and forth through the years, and we've created a lot of memories for family and friends here. When our kids finished college and all moved to different cities, it was finally time to move to the Beaches of South Walton full time. Having a Seagrove Beach home means lots of visits from your kids, so we knew we would still see them a lot.

Making the transition to beach living from Overland Park, Kansas has been very exciting. Everyone loves to talk about how beautiful and special Scenic 30A is - that’s understandable, because it is so true. It's also true that property purchased in one of 30A’s beach communities can be a very good decision

Open House: 29 Macy Lane

The Peach Creek neighborhood is located north east of Seagrove Beach, off US Highway 98 in the Point Washington area of the Beaches of South Walton. This wonderful neighborhood serves as an ideal place for year-round living. The ideal location of Peach Creek homes make for a highly desirable neighborhood offering short distances to schools, grocery stores and just five minutes away from 30A’s outstanding beaches.

Peach Creek was developed by D.R Horton Builders in late 2011. Traditional styled homes are both one and two stories with brick exteriors. Plans typically feature 9’ ceilings, open main living areas and double car garages. Home Owner assessments for the neighborhood are very modest.

south walton is growing

The Beaches of South Walton have been experiencing a lot of growth and change over the last couple of years. How does that change look?

We’ve put together some stats that are pretty amazing.

South Walton County by the Numbers

More and more people are discovering the 30A area as both a vacation destination and as a highly desirable place to live, work, play, and raise their families. Ten to fifteen years ago, it wasn’t uncommon for businesses to close during the “off season” (traditionally Labor Day to March 1); but now, due to a full line-up of nearly year-round concerts, major events, art fairs and festivals, the “shoulder seasons” are becoming more and more narrow. (Go to Waltonoutdoors and 30A.com for info on upcoming local events.)

eastern coastal dune lake, 30a florida

The lakes located along Scenic 30A’s 18-mile stretch of road are unique and special, not only to South Walton and Northwest Florida but they hold a very unique distinction. Classified as Coastal Dune Lakes because of their close proximity to our beautiful white dunes and the gulf, these local treasures are extremely rare and only exist in five other places world-wide. A beautiful, award-winning PBS documentary on the Coastal Dune Lakes was released earlier this year and has already been featured in several film festivals.

Seaside, FL Post OfficeSeaside, FL - On October 23rd, locals, town merchants and curious visitors gathered in front of one of Scenic 30A's most iconic spots to commemorate the thirtieth anniversary of the Seaside Post Office.

Built in 1985 during a time when Scenic 30A was much less developed; the post office was intended to serve as a landmark. It would become popular gathering place and a way to provide a "sense of place" for the fledgling new community.

Situated literally in the geographical center of Seaside, the post office was designed by the town's founder, Robert Davis.

The Seaside Post Office Today

Thirty years later the post office still serves its original purpose. It is also, no doubt, the most photographed building in Seaside and most likely the most
