With stark white tents, flowing fine wine, fresh Gulf seafood, beautiful ladies strolling around in hats, and plenty of live music, it’s no wonder that the The Sandestin Wine Festival is sometimes called the “Kentucky Derby of Wine Festivals.”
Now in its 27th year, the Sandestin Wine Festival is the original and most established wine festival on the Gulf Coast, and features one-of-a-kind seminars, wine dinners, grand wine tastings and culinary experiences. It’s a magnificent tradition featuring more than 700 wines.
“We are excited to report that ticket sales for the Sandestin Wine Festival are well ahead of any festival in previous years,” said special events manager Lanier Motes.
Over 40 percent of South Walton’s land is protected, and the majority of that acreage is part of the Point Washington State Forest system. A popular access point is the Eastern Lake Trail System, located along S. County Road 395. This particular trail system offers 3.5, 5 and 10-mile loops, ideal for both hikers and bicyclists. Pets are also allowed, if on a leash.
The 15,400-acre forest is home to ten natural communities, including sandhill, cypress swamps, basin swamps, wet flatwoods and wet prairie.
This is the highest quality beach chair that you can find anywhere, and it’s one of the last beach chairs that you’ll ever need to buy.
We know this to be true because not only is this folding beach chair made in the U.S.A., it’s made right here in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida by lifelong local Brad McDowell.
“It’s cool that all the guys who work for us are local and have been working the beach for years as well,” said Brad. “It’s beach guys making beach chairs.”
Having worked in the beach service industry his entire life, Brad set out to create the ultimate line of beach loungers. Today, his chairs are purchased and used by many world-class resorts for their beach rental services (which means these things are super-durable). Brad personally selects the finest white oak that’s timbered in the southeast (usually from south Georgia), and then his South Walton team constructs every single chair by hand, from the beautifully crafted oak frame to the rust-proof brass hinges and rivets, to the vibrant fade-resistant Sunbrella® fabric with our embroidered 30A logo on the back. Coated with marine varnish, this classic beach lounger is designed to withstand the salt air, sunlight and harsh elements of the beach and will last for many, many years.
