Five on Friday: 30A

Today, I thought I would dedicate my five on Friday to 30A - one of my favorite beach spots to eat, drink, relax, and soak up some sun.  Here are my favorite spots that are a must see on your trip to 30A and a few things you can't miss!

{one} The Red Bar - Grayton Beach
By far the hot spot on 30A for locals and tourists alike - The Red Bar is where it's at! The food is fresh, authentic and delicious! Hands down our favorite meal of the week. Be sure to get there early - there is always a wait - but if you go on Wednesday a fun jazz band will keep you entertained while you grab a drink in their neat bar. O, and to make it real local - cash or check only!

{two} The Fonville Press - Aly's Beach.
We had a nice morning on Wednesday working from The Fonville Press for the morning. Such an adorable spot in Aly's Beach - with outside covered spots that give you the perfect amount of breeze and sunshine. That morning they had a play for the kiddos that was a hit, and they offer other family oriented things throughout the week like yoga and movie night on the lawn.

{three} Beach Cruisers.
I didn't get a pic of us cruising the beach - but we took a nice long cruise down to the local cantina for some margaritas and chips one afternoon. The best part of 30A is the bike paths along the road - every house comes with beach cruisers... and if not, there are lots of local bike shops where you can rent by the week!

{four} Bud & Ally's - Seaside Beach.
The best place to catch a sunset - and the only eatery on the water side  - Bud & Ally's is the perfect spot for cocktails, dinner, or late night revelry. We enjoyed some awesome shrimp corndogs, pimento cheese, and bread-n-butter fried pickles. Perfect match to the local 30A beer. 
Staying for sunset? Guess the sunset time and win a free drink!

{five} Fresh Seafood.
We love going out and exploring while we are at the beach, but we also love staying in and cooking up some delicious seafood ourselves. Because we were coming from P'cola, we hit up Joe Pattie's on the way for some fresh shrimp, but there are a couple local markets on 30A. One we have stopped at before is Goatfeathers Seafood. The local Publix can't be beat - they have everything you could possibly need!

Hope you get to make a trip down to 30A soon - it's the perfect lil getaway for families and those looking for some quiet beach time. Excited to get back to Lex next week and let the springtime fun begin.... renovations, planting, moving, and lots of sunshine! ...but not before another fun weekend with the folks!
