When was the last time you fell in love with a place? You know, that breathless, tingly-all-over feeling you get when you’ve found a location that speaks to you? For many, South Walton is that place,...
Nestled between the sugar-white sand dunes along South Walton's beach are some of the rarest and most spectacular natural features the area has to offer: coastal dune lakes. They're found in only a few places on earth: New Zealand, Australia, Madagascar and the U.S. – and even in the same location, one coastal dune lake can vary drastically from its neighbors.
There’s no better way to get “up close and personal” with South Walton than a bike ride along the Timpoochee Trail. The approximately 18.5-mile trail, named after an influential Euchee Indian Chief, winds past dune lakes and state parks and beach access points through several charming beach neighborhoods. It’s a perfect day trip for the family, an ideal way to get some exercise, and a whole lot of fun.
