Pet’s Welcome

As I started researching pet friendly activities, restaurants, and areas on 30A, I quickly realized that I should be researching places that are “not” pet friendly because there are more that “are” than “not”.  That’s great news for everyone travelling with your pet to 30A. For me, I like to start with bad news and then end with positive information. So, if you’re planning on bringing your fur babies with you on your next trip to 30A, keep this in mind…

All dogs are prohibited from public beaches of Walton County except as provided below:

1) Dogs assisting those who are sight and hearing impaired or service animals; or, 2) Dogs owned by Walton County real property owners or permanent residents who have obtained a permit and who maintain the animal on a leash.

I know, this is disappointing especially if you had visions of creating Reels, Tik Toks and videos of your doggo frolicking on the water’s edge, surfing or just being stinkin’ cute during your epic vacation to 30A.

Well, that’s it for the bad news. Now on to the good news. Your pooch is welcome at all state parks along 30A, while on a leash: Camp Helen, Grayton Beach State Park, Topsail State Hill Preserve Park, Eden Gardens State Park and Point Washington State Forest. There are miles of trails that you and your pet can enjoy while taking in the rare beauty of the coastal dune lakes and wildlife surrounding them.  But if you don’t want to go off the beaten path then you’re in luck, the Timpoochee Trail runs parallel to 30A and its 18 miles long. Grab your pup and leash and head out to grab your morning coffee and croissant.

Like I said, there are more restaurants than I could list that are considered pet friendly. From Inlet to Dune Allen, many restaurants allow dogs and their owners to enjoy a meal together in the outdoor dining areas. Some even have water bowls and treats available for your canine companions. I suggest you look up the restaurant you are planning on dinning at to make sure your fur baby is welcome. But here is a brief list:

Inlet

Rosemary

Seacrest

Alys Beach

Watersound

Seagrove Beach

Seaside and Watercolor

Grayton Beach

Blue Mountain Beach

Santa Rosa Beach/Gulf Place

The 30A Beach Girls know how stressful it can be to leave or board our fur babies when we go on vacation. We have many homes that welcome pets so check out our website for pet friendly and pets considered homes. When searching our properties just select the “Pet Friendly” and “Pets Considered” filters. https://30a-beachgirls.com/  We look forward to hosting you and your pets.

Beep, BEEP! Coming through!

Are you planning a beach vacation and looking for a unique way to explore the coast? Look no further than renting a Jeep or a Bronco for your next adventure.

At 30A Beach Girls, we offer beach Jeep and Bronco rentals for guests renting a beach home. Our rental vehicles are perfect for those looking to explore the beach and surrounding areas in style.

Not only are they practical, but they’re also fun to drive. Imagine cruising down the beach with the wind in your hair, or exploring hidden coves and beautiful beach towns. With a Jeep or a Bronco, the possibilities are endless.

Our Vehicles

All of our rental vehicles are well-maintained and regularly serviced to ensure a safe and reliable driving experience. We also offer a variety of rental options, including daily, weekly, and even monthly rentals.

Did someone say, “Happy Hour”?

I’ll Cheers to that…

Have you ever wondered where the tradition of raising your glass and saying “CHEERS”, “PROST” or “SALUD” comes from? Well curious minds at 30A Beach Girls wanted to know and now you will too.

According to some historians, this tradition goes back to medieval times when apparently poisoning your enemy was commonplace. One way to be sure that the person you were drinking with had no ill intentions, was to combine a portion of your drink. They did this by clinking their glasses together so vigorously that the contents of each sloshed together. If there was poison in either cup/glass, then both would be doomed. Thankfully times have changed. Nowadays, people bring their glasses together for many reasons, not just grand events. And if you are like me, there’s always a good reason to raise your glass and say “Cheers!” especially on a 30A vacation.

Here’s a list of some food and drinking establishments that you’ll definitely want to visit while you’re here and check out their Happy Hour Specials too!

As you may know or have discovered, there are no chain restaurants anywhere on 30A, except for a few Starbucks. A feature that I personally love and that makes this area even more exceptional as well as a great way to support our local entrepreneurs. But back to the picky eaters; thankfully most restaurants in our area provide kids menus, including some fine dining establishments. (If you want to get away for a romantic dinner, sans kiddos, let us know, we can recommend some babysitters too). For all the other meals, here’s our guide to kid friendly food favorites from Inlet Beach to Gulf Place…

Many have visited scenic 30A along the Emerald Coast and have enjoyed the beautiful sugar sand beaches, and clear gulf waters. This unique stretch of land from Rosemary Beach to Santa Rosa is only 24 miles long, but did you know there are 4 State parks along that 24-mile stretch? If you haven’t visited them, you are missing out. Each one is different and unique, but all have stunning landscapes and serene spots to take in the natural surroundings. From the coastal dune lakes and saltwater marshes to massive sand dunes and winding nature trails through scrub oak forests, these 4 State parks should be at the top of your “must see” list.

 

At the far East end of 30A in Inlet Beach, is Camp Helen State Park. Bordering the Gulf of Mexico and Lake Powell, one of the largest coastal dune lakes in Florida, Camp Helen offers many outdoor activities for the whole family to enjoy.

 

Just a short distance West on 30A, is Deer Lake State Park. This beautiful, 1,920-acre State Park borders the Gulf of Mexico and Deer Lake, one of the 15 coastal dune lakes in Walton County. Newly renovated, this state park has picnic areas, hiking trails and a long high boardwalk that stretches hundreds of yards over the dunes to access the beach.

 

As you go West on 30A, you’ll reach Grayton Beach State Park and my personal favorite. Home to the 100-acre Western Lake, another coastal dune lake, Grayton Beach State Park is idyllic. It also has massive dunes, hiking trails, canoeing, kayaking, boat ramp, and a beautiful beach. There’s camping and cabins to rent at the park.

 

Topsail State Park is at the far West end of 30A in Santa Rosa Beach and is more like a resort than a state park. It has campground, bungalows, swimming pool, tennis and shuffleboard courts and of course hiking trails, bike paths, and 3.2 miles of beaches. They even have a tram service that picks up throughout the park.

 

Each park holds events throughout the year and sowal.com is a great website for information about the parks and all of 30A. There’s so much to do and see within these 24 miles of land and we hope you plan to visit one or more of these beautiful state parks on your next trip to 30A. You won’t regret it.
