There are few things as magical as 30A at Christmas time. No matter what community you are in you feel as if you have stepped into a Hallmark movie. It is magical. It brings families together to look at all of the trees along the stretch of road – even ours! The Seaside post office is always an iconic sight at Christmas, the garland strung as you drive into Alys beach takes your breath away and my favorite – the elegant decor around Rosemary Beach.
This year my girl and I got to see some of the most beautiful homes in all of Northwest Florida decorated for Christmas at the Rosemary Beach Tour of Homes Christmas edition. It was such a treat!
We also went as a family to the first year of the Seaside Holiday Market – ice skating, pictures with Santa, local vendors – you name it!
This is many locals favorite time of the year to be at the beach. All of the beaches and normally heavy trafficked areas are like ghost towns. Even though it is cold – which no Floridian is all about – it is magical.
I wanted to show you a few of our favorite areas at Christmastime since many of you only get to see it during the Summer.
