This gorgeous 18.5 mile stretch of two lane highway is located in Northwest Florida in the Panhandle of Florida's Gulf Coast along the "Beaches of South Walton". This area is comfortably tucked between Destin and Panama City and is also referred to as the Emerald Coast.
Scenic County Highway 30-A is spotted with many eclectic communities. The atmosphere here is upscale yet casual. Exclusive yet inviting.
