If Seaside is the heart of Scenic Highway 30A, then Grayton Beach is her soul. In fact, in these parts, Grayton is where vacationing first began, with early travelers arriving by horse and buggy to these sugar-white shores.
Populated with historic cottages, twisting oak trees, quaint shops and galleries, and fun and quirky residents.
The community’s unofficial slogan is “Nice Dogs, Strange People”
Grayton Beach is also the only place in the region where you can take a 4-wheel drive vehicle directly out onto the sand (but only with a proper permit!).
The preferred Sunday hangout for many locals, kids love to splash-around in the warm waters of the Western Lake outfall, while watching dolphins skip across the emerald green Gulf. The weekly tradition is called Sunday Funday.
Grayton is home to some Grayt Coffee, and also, of course, South Walton’s famous Red Bar – home of a million fuzzy memories, as well as jazz and bluegrass bands that get the crowds dancing almost every night.
Was that a big celebrity that you just spotted back in the corner booth? Probably. But we don’t bother them here. Just like they rest of us, they come to 30A and South Walton to relax and create special memories with their families.
That’s what Grayton’s all about.
Even if you can’t be out there every day, be sure to join the thriving Grayton Facebook community at www.Grayton.com.
