With a neighborhood motto of “Nice Dogs, Friendly Folks”, Grayton Beach is about as laidback and organic as a beach town can get. From the narrow neighborhood streets lined with live oaks and the old-style wooden beach bungalows to the “hippie kitsch” feel of the iconic Red Bar, it’s easy to fit in and feel at home.
But this is more than just a cool beach town. Home to the vastly diverse coastal ecosystems of Grayton Beach State Park and Western Lake, Grayton Beach is a haven for fishermen, boaters and beachcombers alike.
