Kids at Seaside FL

Kids of all ages love the beach. Hey, swimming, sandcastles, skim-boarding, wake boarding, snorkeling, surfingfishing, shell collecting… what’s not to love? But let’s admit it, eventually sand fatigue sets in, and sun-weary kids and parents alike look for alternative family-friendly activities to enjoy.

Fortunately, South Walton is home to numerous state parks, playgrounds, kids camps, shops and kid-friendly festivals and events.

There’s Camp WaterColor for guests of WaterColor Inn & Resort, and Camp RYNO for kids who aren’t tired of the surf (even if their parents are). Rosemary Beach always has something fun going on (including Camp Rosemary), and if you’re lucky, you might even chance upon one of their Random Acts of Rosemary, when the Merchants of Rosemary Beach show up unexpectedly with a water slide, moon jump or some other random silly fun for the young ones.

South Walton offers an abundance of kid-friendly activities…

The Seaside REP‘s always hosting plays, puppet shows and story hours for kids, while Fired Up‘s pottery studio is a fantastic escape from the heat (or rain). Spend a few hours making your creation, and then return the next day and be wow-ed by your own artistic talent!

Scenic Highway 30A‘s 19-mile bike path is also perfect for families wanting to explore South Walton’s rare coastal dune lakes.

Baytowne Wharf in Sandestin is a wonderland for adventurous kids, with towering rock walls to climb, expansive zip lines to cross, water activities, magic shows and more.

For information about daily kids’ activities, check out 30A’s events calendar. We even have free 30A iPhone and 30A Android apps for families who are always on the go! Finally, the helpful 30A Facebook page has over 100,000 fans, and tons of useful info for kids of all ages.
