Arts & Culture
With 26-miles of sugar white sand and turquoise water to behold, South Walton is the perfect destination for a beach vacation, a family reunion or a couples/friends getaway. What soothes the soul more than lying on the beach, listening to the waves lap in the distance and warm Gulf breezes dancing in your hair?
And while you could probably spend the entire day soaking up the sunshine, there’s so much more to explore in South Walton.
To truly immerse yourself into the South Walton culture, look no further than the local art galleries, live music venues or performing arts stages that dot our 16 unique beach neighborhoods. From Inlet Beach in the east to Miramar Beach in the west, there are dozens of art galleries beckoning to be explored; countless musicians pouring their passion into microphones; and Broadway-quality thespians acting out the perfect scene night in and night out.
Whatever you choose to do while you are here, let South Walton speak to you.
