If you are planning a family trip to the 30A area in Florida, you may be searching for activities and other things to do with kids.
The Florida panhandle is home to the beautiful Emerald Coast, which features many quaint beach towns that serve as perfect vacation spots for families.
Highway 30A has become a really popular destination for those looking for super soft sand and amazingly clear water. Not only do the beaches provide family friendly play areas for kids; but, the towns along 30A also offer many activities for the whole family.
The area known as 30A runs right along the Florida coast from (just after) Destin all the way to Panama City Beach. As you travel this scenic road, you will drive through many adorably small communities full of character and activities.
Some of the towns you will pass through on 30A include:
- Santa Rosa Beach
- Blue Mountain Beach
- Grayton Beach
- Alys Beach
- Rosemary Beach
If you are looking for a place to stay in one of these popular 30A beach towns, you will notice that hotels and high rise condominiums are not as abundant as they are in neighboring Destin. Instead, you will find that most of your rental options include cottages, townhomes, and houses.
When searching for rentals in the Highway 30A region of Florida, my family and I like to use VRBO. This website allows you to search available rental properties while narrowing down your results by number of bedrooms/bathrooms, price, amenities, etc.
I particularly like to use VRBO to read in-depth reviews of a property before renting it. We have always been incredibly pleased with the condos and homes rented through VRBO. If you want to price out available rentals for your travel dates, you can check out the official website here:
