Enjoying all the daytime fun the cozy beach towns along 30A have to offer is just part of your 30A experience. Relax and unwind in the evening with a drink. Depending on the locale you choose, you’ll be able to add live entertainment, delicious food, or both to your evening relaxation. Some are part of 30A bars and family-friendly restaurants, so the kids can join for a family meal while the adults kick back with a drink in their hand. Just make sure to designate a driver, take one of the free shuttles that run the length of the historic route, or contact your favorite ride-sharing company to make sure everyone gets safely back to your rental provided by 30A Beach Properties.
