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.

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…

seagrove village market, seagrove beachOn Thursday, October 29 2015 after 66 years in business, the Seagrove Village Market Cafe closed its doors at their current location. Since 1949, the market has been a cornerstone landmark in Seagrove Beach, Florida.

Originally opened by local developer C. H. McGee back in 1949, the market initially served as a place for locals and visitors to get bare necessities while at the beach. At one point in the very early days, they had a gas pump and the only local pay phone. A small cafe was eventually added in the rear of the market. In 1999, the market was purchased by 30A locals, George & Ann Hartley who proceeded to develop the business into a popular eatery.
