Summertime Funtime on 30A!

Summer is officially here!  It's so nice to see our visitors who love this area as much as we do and continue their vacation traditions each year.  Of course, a trip to 30A would not be complete without a shopping spree at Ophelia, but there are other "must visit" shops and to-dos around town that we'd like to share.

First off,  check out some of our fav clothing boutiques.
Willow (Rosemary Beach) and Willow+Woods (Seaside) provide a quintessential upscale boutique clothing/jewelry shopping experience.  They carry Tory Burch, French Connection, Cynthia Vincent, Current/Elliott, Frye, Kincaid, Tucker and on and on.  Our friends Celia and Cindy have incredible taste and it shows in every aspect of their two shops.

For beach-inspired bohemian styles, visit Deja Vu in either Seaside or Pier Park.   You may see owner Stephanie in one of her own designs with cowboy boots and a cowboy hat!

Seaside also is the scene for Elliott Boutique, sister store to Village Boutique in Blue Mountain Beach.  Elliott is tres chic and so are the owners Linda and Meredith (mother and daughter).  You will find unique pieces that can take you from day to evening including Linda's own beautiful designs.  For info, call 850.231.1160.

If you decide to venture off of 30A, please visit Kiki Risa - Destin's premier upscale boutique.  You will find brands that include Nicole Miller, Leona, Trina Turk, Theory, Vince and many many more.

For some outdoor fun, rent or purchase a YOLO stand-up paddle board and explore our unique dune lakes.  The sport's popularity has skyrocketed in the past few years and we're so happy to call YOLO our hometown SUP.

Next, if your children are in tow (or even if they're not), you will win major brownie points by going to Duckies Shop of Fun in Seaside.  Owner Stacy has transformed the space into a beach-meets-city-chic toy shop that offers so much more than just toys.

While in Rosemary Beach, don't miss Fitz and Emme or Gigi's.  You will find lovely children's clothing, toys and gifts at Fitz & Emme.  Having two children of her own, Shawn knows exactly what we want, need and don't need!
At Gigi's, expect a hands-on fun-filled experience as you investigate every nook and cranny of the store.

Odds are good you'll need a few things from Publix at Watercolor during your stay.  While you're there, be sure to stop in Little Red at Watercolor Crossing.  Tara has brought "clothes and toys for girls and boys"to us with her expertly chosen high quality items.

And finally, for a spectacular dinner, try our newest hotspot Seagrove V at the corner of 30A and 395.  V offers inside and outside dining with a menu of fresh seafood and produce that's locally sourced.

Come see us at Ophelia first when you get to town but then we hope you'll try some of these favs!   And for more info on our area, don't hesitate to email us at either or   See you soon!  xo
