Planning a family vacation can be tricky when trying to find a destination that is fun for the kids and the parents. There is many destinations that are kid friendly but often are crowded and touristy. If you are looking for somewhere that’s perfect for all ages that doesn’t make you to feel like you need a vacation after your vacation, than the beaches along 30A is the perfect spot. Watercolor, Seaside, Seagrove & Rosemary are just a few of the quaint towns that are along the emerald coast. I grew up on these beaches and still look forward to visiting them today. Not only are they beautiful but they are family friendly, clean and safe. Many people either walk or bike around which can be fun for the whole family. There are many activities you can enjoy together as a family.
1. The Seaside Amphitheater
This is the perfect place to bring the kids after a day in the sun. It’s in the center of Seaside and is surrounded by adorable shops and restaurants that both you and your kids are sure to love. They have concerts and play movies at amphitheater where you and your family can lay down a blanket and enjoy together. Even when there isn’t anything going on, many kids will play games together in the large area of grass.
2. YOLO Boarding at the Boat House in Watercolor
The boat house in Watercolor offers YOLO boarding on the lake. This is a perfect spot to bike to with your family and a fun activity for everyone. They offer them on the YOLO boards on the beach too if you’d rather spend your time on the white sandy beaches.
3. The Food Trucks
They offer many amazing restaurants along with these adorable food trucks that line the road behind the amphitheater. Not only is the food delicious, but they offer healthy options and a variety of different cuisines. From a food truck solely dedicated to grilled cheeses, to a juice bar, BBQ and many other genres. This is a great place to eat for lunch for a casual dinner after a long day at the beach. Not to mention there’s a few ice cream shops located on the other side of the amphitheater. There is picnic tables all around for you and the kids to sit and enjoy your meal. You will not be disappointed!
4. Kids Camps
If you want to enjoy a relaxing day on the beach, walk around the shops or have some alone time, there are many different day camps for the kids to enjoy. They have a schedule of the different ones being offered at the time of your stay. You can download the app for easy access to schedules and events. There are many options to choose from!
5. Relaxing on the beach
Obviously this one is a no brainer. The ocean is crystal clear, and even if you’re just hanging on the beach you and your kids will have an amazing time. The water will make you feel like you are on a tropical island. And who doesn’t like relaxing on the beach?
