Are you going to 30A in Florida for the first time ever? If so, there are tons of must-do activities that you need to experience as a solo traveler, with your friends, or with your loved ones! There are dozens of must-see things and events for you to attend and do during your first — and hopefully not last! — visit 30A in the Sunshine State of Florida!
Go Biking on One of the Many Trails
There are tons of outdoor activities for you to do during your time on 30A. If you are into physical fitness, burning off those vacation calories, or simply enjoying the fresh outside air, then going on a nice long bike ride is the best way to see the coastline and spend some quality time with your loved ones. Turn off the screens and head outside to begin pedaling your way around the entire Floridian coastline to see the bright blue water, white sand beaches, and gorgeous sunsets.
We recommend going to one of the numerous bike rental facilities, like the 30A electric Bike, to cruise your way around the long 30A bike path and see Seacrest, Dune Allen, and dozens of beaches along the way. You can even bike a full 40 miles out and back if you start at one end of the trail!
Have Some Fresh Seafood
One of the main reasons why people flock to Florida all year round is to have fresh seafood paired with light and bright cocktails. If you are in the mood for a nice appetizer to have at your table, we recommend getting some fresh mussels or oysters and pairing them with a nice mojito or daiquiri. For something more filling, you can have some fried calamari with a frozen daiquiri or margarita at your table. There are literally endless options for restaurants when it comes to fresh seafood that comes right out of the water and onto your plate!
Spend Some Time in Nature
Florida is no stranger to nature. Not only can you hop in the wait to meet wildlife, come face to face with underwater creatures, and see some of the best sunrises in the entire world, but you can lead to one of the numerous parks in the 30A area to see some plants, animals, and birds ta are sure to knock your socks off. We recommend heading to Cerulean Park to see the incredible monarch butterflies, local plants, and bubbling water fountains to make you really feel like you are one with nature.
Head to Bud and Alley’s
Bud and Alley’s is a famous gem among tourists and locals alike who want to go out for the night, see a colorful sunset, and have a few cocktails with their friends. Head to Bud and Alley’s to listen to the famous ‘bell ring’, watch a bright red sunset, and take a few photos of the coastline with you and your best friend or family member.
Paddle Onto the Dune Lake
Head to the coast to head out on the water in your mode of choice. We recommend getting a stand-up paddleboard to build your core, burn some calories, and have fun with your friends on the very calm and on one of several Coastal Dune Lakes along 30A, Florida. This is one of the best spots for beginners to learn o to stand up paddle board, try paddleboard yoga, or see a sunrise as they get in some wholesome exercise during the early mornings.
Take a Few Photos of Jumping Dolphins
If you are lucky, during your time on 30A, you will be able to see dolphins in their natural habitat! Instead of going to an aquarium or a zoo, where you can see animals caged and controlled, you can head out on the Gulf of Mexico or on The By to see dolphins jumping, smiling, laughing, and playing with the boats that come nearby!
Grab Some Local Produce for Dinner
If you rent a cottage or condo from our reputable property management company and you would like to cook a wholesome and organic dinner, we recommend going to one of the nearby farmer’s markets to purchase some fresh produce. Grab a few fresh vegetables and fruits from the farmer’s markets in Seaside or Niceville to make a light and bright lunch or dinner for you and your guests.
Bring Out Your Inner Tony Hawk!
Last but not least, head to one of the nearby skateparks to bring out your inner Tony Hawk and try to ollie, drop in, or just skate in a straight line without falling! Head to Point Washington State Forest to have some fun with the local teenagers and test your athletic skills.
