Things to do
When you take a vacation to Santa Rosa Beach the ideal activity is, naturally, the beach. You can do just about anything on the beach from lounging to renting kayaks and paddleboards to even setting up an evening bonfire. It’s your righteous backyard.
Seaside town is perfect for daytime if you want a break from the beach. Everything is located within walking distance whether you want to go for coffee, lunch or shopping. Go to Modica Market, get the to-go mimosas and walk around Seaside! Not into mimosas? Get a frose from B.F.F.
Get fresh seafood from Goatfeathers Seafood Market and cook at home. You can also bike down to the Seaside Farmers Market on Saturday or the Farmer's Market in Rosemary Beach on Sunday. Indulge in healthy eating and seaside vacationing in Santa Rosa Beach.

A note from Kayla
30A is a collection of small, unique, beautiful Florida beach towns nestled quietly between the much busier areas of Panama City and Destin along County Road 30A. Within this area, you’ll find the beach communities of Rosemary Beach, Seaside, Alys and Grayton.
