Scenic Highway 30A
Scenic Highway 30A is a 24 mile corridor that hugs the Gulf of Mexico coastline in Northwest Florida’s Walton County. Along this breathtaking drive you will see sugar-white sand beaches and rare coastal dune lakes. Scenic Highway 30A is a tourist attraction of major proportions.
It is an exciting and eclectic mix of hot Caribbean colors and soft pastels, with architecture to match each community’s charm, whether it be Old Florida’s traditional 2-3 story homes, the cottages of Seaside with white picket fences, or New Urbanism. Miles of greenway trails connect state parks, preserves and residential areas along this byway.
Florida Scenic Highways are often referred to as “byways.” One of the main requirements of scenic byway designation is that it show one or more of six key intrinsic qualities: Historic, Archaeological, Scenic, Cultural, Natural, and Recreational.
