Bikeable Beach Neighborhoods, Part 2: Explore WaterSound, Seagrove, Seaside and WaterColor
In part 1, we showed you how easy it is to see the sights by bike in South Walton. Rent a bike and ride along with us for more fun in our next four beach neighborhoods!
Every worthwhile bike tour begins with the right fuel for the job. Begin in WaterSound at The Hub 30A with your pick of delicious lunch options. Red’s Chicken Shack will fill you up with mouthwatering crispy fried chicken sandwiches and biscuits to keep you pedaling all day. If you’re craving burgers instead, brighten your day with a Crave Burger with signature sauce and a side of fries.
Rent your bike from Salt Air 30A and let’s roll on down to Seagrove for some shopping and refreshments! First stop: 30A Art and Junk, to hunt for treasure in an amazing assortment of handmade local jewelry, including leather and pearl. But that’s not all – there’s also a huge array of funky folk art, humorous and quirky signs, clothing and gifts. You’ll find so much to like here.
After all that biking and shopping, you deserve a sweet treat. Make a pit stop at Pop Stop 30A for almost any frozen pop flavor you can think of, from pineapple jalapeño to peanut butter banana. Each popsicle is made with love and creativity, and the only problem you’ll have is that you probably can’t bring them home on your bike!
Once you’ve cooled down with a treat (or two), hop back in the saddle and head for Seaside, where you can grab some eats à la carte at Airstream Row – perhaps a donut at Five Daughters Bakery or an ice cream (what’s one more?) at Frost Bites. Then, pause to explore the Anne Hunter Galleries on Central Square, where you’ll find the works of socially committed artists and a business committed to reinvesting part of its profits in the community.
End the evening with a meal in WaterColor at Pizza By the Sea. Wonderful and creative pizzas from the “Cha Cha Chipotle” to the “Colby Special” are a great way to end a full day of biking around the beach while you relax inside or outside. And if you’re up for it, the beach is just a few minutes down the road by bike.
