Running along a shining blue sea and through pine flatwoods, dodging past saltwater inlets and freshwater lakes, and going over coastal uplands and sand hills, Scenic 30-A exhibits beauty that may be like no other. The experience of the area’s landscape can be seen as unparalleled in its view, especially with the white, sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. Here are some reasons why 30-A is one of this year’s most popular New Year’s Eve destinations.
New Year’s Eve tends to be a slower time for tourists at Scenic 30-A, making it a good time for a visit. The beach becomes practically empty, the waits in line are drastically shortened, and the 30-A condo rentals have lower rates. There are also several festivities and concerts that you can attend around that area. That can mean getting a front row seat, closest to the action.
The celebration for New Year’s at Scenic 30-A begins on December 31st. 30-A and South Walton feature festival activities for kids which come free of charge, like making noisemakers. You can participate in activities for the entire family too, like the time capsule for New Year’s resolutions and wishes. There are also Seaside stilt walkers, jugglers, magicians, balloon sculptors, and face painters, all for the spirit of festivity.
At the exact stroke of midnight, the Seaside lights up with fireworks, the multi-colored, magnificent scene being visible even from a long distance away. With musical entertainment available, the party is only just getting started. Scenic 30-A’s weather is usually even and warm enough to maintain blooms and blossoms all year round. The New Year’s celebration won’t have to be done in bulky jackets or freezing temperatures. New Year’s in 30-A is like setting aside a slice of spring or fall while still keeping up the festival spirit and cheer as the weather dips slightly during the winter, but not too much.
Every one of the famous beaches in Scenic 30-A has been certified as Blue Wave Beaches. The certification comes from the Blue Wave program, which is the very first national environmental certification for beaches and was created to condition beaches to be safe, clean, and vibrant.
If the party is held indoors at all, opt for the area’s bars or have your own party in your vacation rental. With the gorgeous Gulf winds sweeping over the shimmering white sand, the beach works well, too.
