Seaside Villages and Towns
Replete with spectacular ocean views and old-fashioned charm, the villages and towns along the 30A are ideal for a scenic stroll and a little exploration in paradise. The village of Seaside is particularly well-known for its colorful, quaint, and care-free ambiance, which was featured in the immensely popular movie, “The Truman Show.” You can even take a picture outside of Truman’s house! Similarly, Rosemary Beach has elegant pathways and boardwalks which are lit with quaint, vintage gas lamps at night—truly a romantic setting!
Some of the most photographed beaches in the world are located along the Scenic 30A, as well as the rare beauties that are coastal dune lakes. Classic beach cottages sporadically adorn these pristine beaches, adding to the air of simplicity and timelessness that is imbued within the area—particularly in Inlet Beach. Meanwhile, Lake Powell provides ample photo opportunities with its vibrant natural colors, and Miramar Beach is a great place to go if you want to experience a bustling atmosphere that is a change of pace from the other beaches and towns along the 30A.
Other Sights to See and Things to Do
Along the nearly thirty-mile scenic stretch that comprises the 30A, there are ample activities and attractions to partake in during Florida day trips, including exquisite culinary spots, premier shopping, invigorating golfing, and tranquil fishing. Our recommendation: prepare a picnic lunch in your very own beach rental, then spend the day wandering where the wind takes you along the 30A!
