The Healthy Lifestyle of 30A

Maybe it's the fresh coastal air, the serene surroundings, or the friendly faces you encounter... whatever the case 30A makes you want to get outside and be active.

There are endless possibilities of things to do along 30A. Ride your own or rent a bike at a number of bike shops in the area including 30A Bike Rentals and Peddlers. 30A's 19-mile paved bike path (sometimes referred to as the "Timpoochee Trail") parallels the entire length of the scenic road and passes through all of its famous beach communities, from Dune Allen in the west to Seacrest and Alys Beach in the east. Enjoy the thrill of biking over rare coastal dune lakes and discovering a side of South Walton that's difficult to see from a car.

Bring your paddle board down to the beach or drop it in one of the coastal lakes. Enjoy a day out on a boat out and spend the day cruising, tubing, or fishing. Take an eco-tour of our area and learn its unique history. Andy Coleman of Backwater Tours is passionate about showing people the hidden, lush side of the panhandle by touring them around the Choctawhatchee River on his shallow draft 26-foot motorboat. River Run spring, a freshwater swimming hole, is one of the many secret spots he takes you on his tour.

After a day of riding bikes or out on the water nourish your body with a healthy and tasty meal from Raw & Juicy in Seaside. The shiny Airstream trailer serves up raw juices, real food smoothies, raw food snacks for the beach, one of the best breakfasts around, and many other selections that will leave you feeling simultaneously content, happy, and healthy. 

30A invites healthy and happy living for residents and vacationers alike. There's simply nothing like it allowing everyone to feel truly refreshed after a stay here, making it a great place to invest!
