A bustling cobblestone town center perched at the edge of Choctawhatchee Bay, The Village of Baytowne Wharf is the thumping heart of the larger Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort that encompasses it. With dozens of quaint shops, excellent restaurants, nightclubs and plenty of attractions for kids (and kids at heart), Baytowne Wharf is a fun event-filled destination any time of day, night or year.
Professional and amateur anglers alike have been coming to South Walton’s sugar-white shores for over a century, because they truly offer some of the best sport fishing in the world.
Although the bustling harbors in Destin and Panama City Beach are better known for deep-sea fishing excursions (mainly because their harbors have direct access to the Gulf), that certainly doesn’t mean that you need to drive to either place to satiate your fishing fix.
Some people love the beach. Some people love golf. Some people love both… and those are the people who come to South Walton, round after round, to indulge in the best of both worlds.
In fact, South Walton’s home to some of Florida’s top-rated golf courses.
The very first “Grayton Beach Fine Arts Festival” was held in 1989, and because of the event’s ever-increasing popularity, the Cultural Arts Alliance (CAA) was founded to help organize and promote this unique artistic celebration throughout South Walton.
Today, over 20 years later, that event is known as ArtsQuest, and this non-profit organization of artists and art lovers not only organizes other amazing annual events (such as 30A Songwriters Festival and Flutterby Children’s Art Festival), but it also provides grants and scholarships to aspiring and established talents in our community.
Founded in 2001, South Walton’s Seaside Repertory Theatre (often referred to as “The REP”) isn’t your typical small town community outfit.
This is Northwest Florida’s premier professional theatre company, with seasonal shows produced and performed by professional actors from around the U.S. who are eager to refine and share their craft.
