‘Tis the season for towns and neighborhoods coming aglow with twinkling holiday lights. In South Walton, our beach communities pull out all the stops to dazzle spectators during the holiday season.
Check out our round-up of where to see the best holiday lights:
Rosemary Beach (pictured above)
In the Rosemary Beach community, Christmas lights are draped in the oaks all along North and South Barrett square, giving the town a soft, magical glow. The highlight of the community’s holiday decorations is a 25-foot Norwegian Spruce set against the backdrop of Town Hall.
For the holidays, The Village of Baytowne Wharf really puts on a show — literally. All through the month of December, enjoy a fun, family-friendly light show over the lagoon set to some of the most beloved holiday tunes.
The show plays every Friday and Saturday night leading up to Christmas at 6 and 7 p.m. On Wednesdays, during holiday concerts at the plaza, the show will go off at 7 p.m.
A towering, 30-foot Christmas tree at the Alys Beach amphitheater is the centerpiece of this town’s holiday decorations.
Don’t miss the sight of garlands hanging from each iconic buttery and crossing over Scenic Highway 30A. It’s the perfect spot for a before-sundown photo opp.
Wreaths are also hang throughout the property and decorated trees are located at the Alys Beach Sales Center and Fonville Press.
Twelve beautiful trees have been decorated by area non-profits and will be on display through Christmas.
A 24-foot tree stands tall at the Seaside amphitheater and the entire town is lit up with twinkling holiday lights making this a perfect spot for a stroll to get into the holiday spirit.
