The 30A Road Most Traveled

There are only a few roads in the world that are so unusual or beautiful that they have become vacation destinations in their own right. 30-A joins the ranks of the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH), the Amalfi Coast Road, and France’s Corniche... it runs through pine forests along the most beautiful white sand beaches in the world offering breathtaking views of rolling dunes edged by Caribbean blue Gulf waters. It crosses freshwater coastal lakes, saltwater inlets, wetlands and marshes - passing by centuries-old live oaks draped with ferns and moss, bonsai size scrub oaks and magnolias with fragrant white blooms. Rosemary grows wild along the roadside as do the golden sea oat grasses.

Highway 30-A is only 18 ½ miles long, but along the way you pass four state parks, 11 rare coastal dune lakes and 11 totally unique tiny beach towns. Dune Allen Beach, Santa Rosa Beach, WaterColor, Seaside, Seagrove Beach, WaterSound Beach, Seacrest Beach, Alys Beach, Rosemary Beach, Inlet Beach and Carillon Beach (just off 30-A, on US98).

Why not buy in this majestic place?
