I never believed one of my Top 3 vacation spots would be in the U.S. I have become so adapt to traveling to exotic beaches all over the world like Thailand and Aruba, but honestly this Florida spot stole my heart!
We didn't really understand how all the different beaches lined up along 30A so we found a cute Airbnb at The Villages of Seacrest and rented bikes to explore the other towns! Rosemary Beach, which was walking distance from where we stayed was probably my favorite! The tall German-like architecture made you feel like you were somewhere in Europe, rather than in Florida! We spent way too much money at all the shoppes because literally every store had something unique to buy! We ate at La Crema Tapas & Chocolate one night ; make sure to get dessert there! We also had breakfast at The Summer Kitchen Cafe in Rosemary one morning! Make sure to wake up early if you want breakfast because most restaurants stop serving at 10:30am! This was something we had to learn the hard way!
If you have time, make sure to visit Aly's Beach (pronounced Alice) and stop by Fonville Press for a cup of coffee! We landed here upon arrival since we couldn't check into our Airbnb yet and all expectations and stress just melted away! Oh and don't forget to get the Sesame Crab and Avocado Salad from George's!!
Last stop was to Seaside! I'm so glad we made it here, even though a lot of locals tried to steer us away saying it was too touristy! We came here for the Farmer's Market on Saturday morning and shopped all day, went back to Seacrest to lay out at the beach and then we came back for a sunset dinner at Bud and Alley's! There were so many restaurants we wanted to try in Seaside, such as Great Southern since it came highly recommended, but we ran out of time so I will definitely be back soon!
