Park
“43 min. away, salt marshes, sea oat covered crystal white sand dunes and blue-green waters make up this huge state park. Western Lake, the second largest coastal dune lake in the Florida Panhandle, is just one of the many coastal dune lakes that visitors see while driving down Scenic Highway 30A. This park also offers facilities for swimming, fishing, snorkeling, and camping.”

“This is our family staple!! We love going during happy hour and getting half priced appetizers. Especially the Volcano Shrimp paired with the Arugula Salad! They have an outdoor area that is great for letting the kids run around and play a little corn hole toss. Can not go wrong trying this place. There is something for everyone on the menu.”

“I love to sit outside on the street and people watch and just look at the beautiful brick streets and amazing architecture. This is one of my favorite restaurants for delicious fondue or espresso cookies and a glass of wine. The food is also amazing, you cannot go wrong here. Take a walk down to the beach to watch the sunset afterwards. It's just beautiful.”
