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.

This byway is built on a strong existing history of tourism to the area, and has an enormous following on social media. It has the most comprehensive traveler information of any byway on their website. If you are looking for one of the most beloved beach spots in Florida – look no further!

Associated Resources

These are specific resources for this byway. See General Byway Resources (this will be a different section of the site) for connections to organizations affecting all byways in Florida. Highway 30A is the heart of a successful “30A” brand which is not associated with the Scenic Highway 30A byway organization. We point this out since “30A” is prominent on social media and app stores. The 30A brand sites and tours are a great resource for those traveling on 30A, but the official byway link is where you can find information about participating in and supporting the official byway organization.
