Although the Summer Solstice is not until June 20th, locals and visitors alike will agree that the summer (unofficially) kicks off this Memorial Day Weekend along 30A!
With 11 distinct beach communities along Scenic Highway 30A (including Inlet Beach) you’re sure to stumble upon just the right Memorial Day event for your crew.
If you have the entire family to entertain this holiday weekend, an outdoor concert might be the perfect way to enjoy the picturesque Emerald Coast while kicking off the summer season. Several beach communities along the 18-mile stretch of Gulf Coast offer a series of free outdoor summer concerts starting Memorial Day Weekend, including Saturday evening at 7 pm in Seaside, WaterColor Concert Sunday night from 7-9 pm, and Monday from 7:30-9:00 pm in Rosemary Beach.
For the Kids
When the sun gets too high and the kids have had their share of sun, sand, and surf, 30A offers an endless variety of kid favored and parent approved activities throughout the summer season! We’ve discovered a local website dedicated to informing those that live along or visit 30A with children about the best ways to play on 30A! Check out 30A Kids Club for summer fun filled activities that will most likely be enjoyed by kids of all ages.
The After Party
We won’t assume that a 3 day holiday weekend would be quite complete without a night of live music, decadent food, and indulgent libations. A local Grayton favorite, The Red Bar, always offers up a great time. Dine alfresco in WaterColor. Catch a gorgeous gulf sunset at Bud & Alley’s in Seaside, or hit The Hub, centrally located along 30A in WaterSound.
The Emerald Coast is home to picture perfect beaches, exceptional events, and incredible living. 30A Local Properties wishes you a safe and exciting Memorial Day Weekend and look forward to the best 30A summer yet!
