HAVE YOU EVER BEEN TO INLET BEACH?

Share Button

It’s gorgeous, modern and very upscale, Inlet Beach has blossomed into one of the fastest growing areas at the eastern end of scenic 30A! I remember when I first discovered Inlet Beach, it was so small that if you blinked ~ you missed it! Just a handful of old traditional Florida cottages, you know, the ones that were painted sea foam green and made out of concrete blocks!

30avenue

Now most of those are gone, even the little pine cottage that used to stand where ‘30Avenue’ is now. The development was a slow one and in my opinion, they’re doing a spectacular job.

Inlet Beach is located between Rosemary Beach and Panama City Beach just east of Scenic Highway 30A and on the Gulf of Mexico. It has the largest public beach access in South Walton. One of the few places one can watch the sun rise and set all from your beach chair. Come explore Inlet Beach, you will be amazed.

The HUB 30A

Share Button

The HUB on 30A is a great night hotspot on the Eastern End of 30A. It is a great family place and it offers many activities year round. There are multiple food trucks and restaurants throughout the HUB. There is always music playing and it is a very family friendly place. They will play all of the major sporting events on their big screen and they offer live music on most nights.

Be ready to empty your wallet when you come because it can get very pricey. They offer adult beverages to the adults and they ID everyone. It is a wonderful place on 30A that everyone should visit when they vacation here. We love the HUB and we will see you there!

Rosemary Beach

rosemary beach, rosemary beach real estate

Rosemary Beach

is a town that is attractive to visitors and locals as a place to go for fine restaurants, shopping, beautiful architecture, green spaces for relaxing or throwing a ball with the kids, and an amazing beach. And, as an added bonus, all of these amenities may be enjoyed by walking or riding a bike.  The architecture reminds one of a bit of Europe with a dash of New Orleans or Savannah and is perfectly charming. The boardwalks that guide everyone about town and the neighborhoods are shaded by the canopy of the trees and form a sort of cooling tunnel for people to enjoy as they walk about. Here and there you might hear muffled laughter drifting from the homes as families enjoy each other. You might hear soft music or catch a whiff of something good being prepared for dinner. All of this helps to create a very safe and peaceful aura for the residents of Rosemary Beach.

The merchants play host to events every month in Rosemary Beach. Most events are free of charge and appeal to families. During the summer, everyone enjoys weekly outdoor movies, improv story telling, children’s theatre, block parties, and more. The Fourth of July is celebrated with a bike parade, a breakfast party, family field day and fireworks. People love the community and return every year to create memories at Rosemary Beach.

Wild Olives in Rosemary Beach

Wild Olives, a fantastic restaurant in Rosemary Beach

rosemary beach rosemary beach real estate

Rosemary Beach

has been open since 2006 and has made changes over the years to meet customer needs. The restaurant had humble beginnings and served as a convenient market, deli, and bakery which provided customers with breakfasts and lunches.

Rosemary Beach grew and the market expanded with longer hours to include dinner and indoor dining. The owners decided to place more emphasis on their lunch and dinner menus after an educational trip to the Napa Valley in California. The restaurant’s food became more sophisticated and upscale to appeal to the tastes of people who spend time in Rosemary Beach. The dining room has been remodeled and made to feel very comfortable and is called “Bistro 104”. It is still fun and casual while providing an atmosphere in which diners want to relax and spend some time.

Wild Olives has wine tastings every Friday night when the owners share their favorite wines, paired with the right food. A mere $20 will allow you to try 6 wines with appropriate tapas and relax in a great place. What a nice way to spend Friday Night!

Rosemary Beach

One of the gems on 30A is Rosemary Beach, with its unique architecture, calm gulf waters, silky sand beaches, spectacular dining and shopping. It is a great place to unwind, soak up some sun and reconnect with yourself.

Rosemary Beach’s architecture will capture your attention and pique your interest. The homes and commercial buildings are built in a Dutch and West Indies style. Colors are those found in the area’s natural surroundings in shades of rust, tan, green and brown. Homes sport Bermuda shutters, wide second floor porches and arched garage doors. Footpaths and boardwalks lead to large decks over the dunes and to the beach.

The town was established in 1995 and was named after the dune rosemary, which grows in abundance here. Rosemary Beach continues to grow, adding homes as well as new places to dine and shop in the town center. Some of the places in town center that are well known are La Crema, a wine and tapas bar, Restaurant Paradis, Summer Kitchen Cafe, Cowgirl Kitchen

, and Amavida Coffee. One of my favorite shops is Patchoulis which sells the most amazing bath products and perfumes and always invites me in with its lovely fragrance.

The town is a new urban community, so you are able to walk to town center, to the beach, or to a friend’s home. As you walk you’ll be captivated by the greenery and the plantings and the “secret” passageways that are everywhere. Rosemary Beach is perfect for family relaxation, swimming in the Gulf of Mexico,spending time at the pools, strolling, or resting on the balcony with a cool drink as you watch the world go by. You will love the idyllic lifestyle and the beauty that is Rosemary Beach!
