Rosemary BeachCharming Architecture & Upscale Dining
Cobblestone streets and winding paths invite exploration of this popular neighborhood.
Architecturally beautiful and lively, Rosemary Beach, this neo-traditional beach community mixes New Urbanism – the design style that places everything within a short walk of town center – and West Indies style with pristine beaches, a bustling town square, and award-winning restaurants. Rosemary Beach was named one of “America’s Most Romantic Small Towns” by CNN, which comes as no surprise to anyone who’s wandered its winding paths and cobblestone streets, or dined al fresco in its welcoming patios and courtyards.
Brick sidewalks line the neighborhood’s Main Street and town square, enticing guests to delve into the locally owned shops and boutiques where fashions and fun mix and mingle. From fine dining at Edward's to indulgent desserts at La Crema, there are no shortage of opportunities for foodies to enjoy world-class dining. Families flock to the casual and pleasing cuisine of Cowgirl Kitchen, Wild Olives and The Summer Kitchen Café, where favorite meals become an important mainstay of vacation tradition.
The expansive greens of Rosemary Beach welcome groups of family and friends, and are adorned with public art as well as host to a weekly farmer’s market. Exploring deeper along the winding streets of Rosemary Beach will reveal a treasure trove of inspired architecture, as well as a scattered and delightful collection of sculptures from artists around the world.
As the sun goes down residents of Rosemary Beach like to unwind with breathtaking views and cold cocktails, often at scenic rooftop restaurants such as Pescado Seafood Grill & Rooftop Bar and Havana Beach Bar & Grill, which both offer breathtaking views of the Gulf of Mexico. So whether it’s date night or just Tuesday night, a South Walton sunset is the perfect way to end your day with a beautiful splash of color.
