Since its Southern Walton County, we refer to it as SO WAL, or Santa Rosa Beach as that’s what the postal code is for most of the area. You can also fly into VPS (Ft Walton Beach airport) to get here, its a little further out but sometimes the prices are better than the Panama City Airport
Have any of you been on 30A in Florida?
I actually had a friend text me to tell me it is ‘on’ 30A instead of ‘in’ 30A! I think both work because there are a million little ‘beaches’ along 30A, so there is really no other way to categorize the area as a whole. I know some people call it ‘Seaside’, but isn’t that also the name of a beach along 30A? Help a sister out guys, what do you call that entire area? Just 30A? That is what I am going with for now!
I had the pleasure of visiting 30A this past weekend and when I originally got invited I had NO IDEA what 30A was?! Panhandle Florida? There are towns there? Yes, I am naive like that sometimes. Troy, my fiancé, gets so frustrated with me because I am so bad at geography. If you are as bad as me, here is a map showing you exactly what I mean by 30A in Florida:
This map will help you follow along on this post, because we visited so many different places during our stay!
I definitely know what 30A is now, and had one of the best trips in my LIFE! Who is visiting 30A soon? Who wants to visit? This post is for you guys!

The beach house we stayed at Thursday-Sunday was huge. It had two bunk beds, and two rooms with a king bed, and another room with two twins and a queen! Plenty of room for you and all your guests! Oh, and did I mention it was right on the beach?!
Live Well 30A had our fridge completely stocked with groceries when we got there! I mean EVERYTHING we needed for the weekend! What a relief! We literally never had to worry about ANYTHING! I have never seen/experienced anything like it!

Live Well 30A can pick you and your friends/family up from the airport. It is quick and easy and they come in a car big enough to hold all of you AND your luggage. They were there as soon as we landed (even though we were 30 min early) because they tracked our flights! Definitely a hassle free way of getting to and from the airport (airports and traveling is stressful enough, am I right?!)
They can also take you to and from anything you have planned during your stay! We used them to get everywhere. They were always there at least 10 minutes early, but let us know we could take our time. They were always right around the corner when we were ready to be picked up! Make sure to use code LIVEWELLMILLER for 10% off your car service.
They drove us to The Hub 30A in Water Sound on Thursday night. I would definitely recommend it! It has a great atmosphere, including live music, and tonssss of food/drink options! It also has massive TV screens everywhere (so definitely go if you come during football season!) We had a mix of BBQ and Mexican and left very stuff and very happy!
Live Well 30A Gear
Live Well 30A also has a store online HERE and at The Hub right next to the jumbo screen! You can get tee shirts, hats (definitely grabbed a hat), and other goodies while you are there!

Live Well 30A also has catering services that can come out to your house. Definitely beats having to cook and clean during your vacation.
Thanks to Live Well 30A, on Friday morning Chef Holbrook from Signature Catering came to the house and made us brunch. He was so entertaining and the drinks and food were exquisite! They cleaned up everything when we were done so we could get changed and down to the beach quickly! Use code LIVEWELLMILLER to get 10% off your catering services.

Live Well 30A is KNOWN for their amazing service and their beach rentals. You can rent chairs, paddle boards, kayaks, bikes, golf carts, and so much more!
On Friday we rented beach chairs and paddle boards. Their team brought everything out and then came and took everything back for us at the end of the day! It was so nice not having to go pick stuff up and drop it back off. Plus, we could barely carry the paddle boards as it was! They are so dang heavy! Remember to use the code LIVEWELLMILLER to get your 10% off of all of your beach rentals.
Friday was a beach day, and if you saw my Instagram Stories then you know how burnt I got :/. Silly me!

On Friday night, our Live Well 30A shuttle picked us up in a party bus (heck yes) and took us to 45 Central in Seaside. It was delicious! They have small plates (tapas) and sushi. They also have excellent wine and the chef was nice enough to pair a wine tasting with each dish!

On Saturday our Live Well 30A car service took us to lunch at Chiringo in Grayton Beach. This was definitely one of our favorite places! It was so colorful and they had a pet adoption going on out in front! Puppies and mimosas=count me in!
Chiringo is known for their fresh ingredients, but mainly all of their fresh juices. They use their fresh juices in all of their cocktails and I wanted every single one on the menu! Their food was also excellent. I had the fish of the day.
Live Well FAMOUS Bonfire & Fish Broil

For dinner, Live Well 30A set up one of their famous bonfires and did a shrimp boil. You can order just the bonfire, just the shrimp broil, or both!
It was so nice sitting by the fire on the beach since it gets a little chilly there at night. Live Well 30A also had someone there the entire time tending the fire! We never had to get up unless we wanted another drink.
The shrimp broil was the best dinner I had the entire weekend. The shrimp was so fresh and they served it with sausage, potatoes, mac n cheese, and a few other things. Then they had key lime pie for dessert. I was in heaven!
They have tons of different options for you to choose from if you are not a shrimp person. They can also bring stuff to make s’mores!
This is definitely a Live Well 30A service that you should NOT skip! It is something they are known for and something they have perfected! Get 10% off your bonfire/catering with code LIVEWELLMILLER!
