South Walton provides Steve and Holly Charnes with the perfect getaway from work and the distractions of home – without having to travel very far. They can spend their morning leisurely cruising on bikes or doing a little fishing against a beautiful backdrop. By the afternoon, they’re enjoying a peaceful stroll with their bare feet in the turquoise water.
They love how much these 16 beach neighborhoods differ both in their architecture and their activities, while still somehow complementing each other so well. Upscale yet casual refinement meets untouched natural beauty. Areas of lively activity blend with retreats for quiet seclusion. South Walton is a place of balance for them.
Check out their experience!
The sense of genuine connectivity throughout South Walton helps strengthen your feeling of personal togetherness with someone special. There’s just something familiar and welcoming about this destination, whether you’re quietly kayaking on a coastal dune lake or surrounded by all the action in the heart of Seaside.
You can enjoy a romantic drink while watching the sunset from a festive rooftop bar. And though fresh Gulf seafood is always incredible, it’s also fun to play “spin the globe” when it comes to choosing from a wide array of international cuisine.
Everything is so accessible once you’re here, either by foot or by bike. Getting away from it all has a way of making you feel that much closer – hand-in-hand, toes in the sand.
