Christmas Guide to 30A

When the only white Christmas you want to experience is one filled with the white sands of the Florida panhandle, our Tropical Escape 30A holiday hideaways are the only properties you want to consider! Offering comfort, luxury, and a festive cheer that will help bring out your own holiday spirit, every morning will be magical and every night will be filled with the deepest of sleeps. And because we wouldn’t want you to come all this way and miss out on all the fun you can have during your winter escape to the sunshine state, we have created this Florida holiday guide, filling it with tips and hints that will ensure that this Christmas on 30A will be the happiest ever!

Add Extra Charm

Although there may already be some holiday touches provided in your holiday hideaway, there’s always room for a little more and stopping by Lola’s on 30A, 3788 W County Highway 30A in Santa Rosa Beach, and picking up a few Christmas décor items guaranteed to add to the charm of your Florida Noel! Also offering a beautiful selection of gifts and home interior items, it is a great place to get some last minute Christmas shopping done.

30A Farmers’ Market in the Rosemary Beach Community

Speaking of shopping, the Farmers’ Market in the Rosemary Beach community is always a great place to experience local produce, handmade items, and baked goods that just make life sweeter and at Christmas, their wares begin to appear seasonal! Maybe this will be the year you buy homemade Christmas cookies or a crocheted sweater for your favorite bull terrier back home; it doesn’t matter what you buy as much as it matters how much you enjoy your Sunday morning meanderings at the Farmers’ Market!

Christmas on 30A Dinner

Every meal you enjoy during your stay on 30A is an opportunity to gather together with your family, and Cuvee 30A is one of the mainstay restaurants for a glorious holiday dinner on the panhandle. Offering a sophisticated menu and delicious wines (as well as a full bar) an elegant Christmas meal will be yours. Local grocery stores often provide a ready-made meal that you can just heat up in our fully equipped kitchens and enjoy in comfort in style at our family-style dinner tables. And, of course, for those who like to cook, high-end appliances will make it fun to prepare your family’s favorite meals!

The Halls Are Decked

Even if you only pick up a tabletop tree and a few colorful ornaments to add charm to your holiday hideaway, you can still enjoy the lights of the season in whichever community you are staying. Most communities, Seaside, Inlet Beach, and Rosemary Beach, are designed to be walkable, so put on your walking shoes and spend a nice night exploring the neighborhood you have chosen to make your own. The stunning Post Office in Seaside never fails to charm, adding lighted boughs of evergreens intertwined with red ribbon as well as a beautiful wreath that hangs on the columned porch that leads inside the structure but trust us; the entire community is destined to make your holiday shine bright!

The Nutcracker, Mattie Kelly Arts Center in Niceville

A performance of the Nutcracker is always a holiday tradition, one that doesn’t have to be skipped during your Florida Christmas. Performed by the Northwest Florida Ballet Company every year at the Mattie Kelly Arts Center in Niceville, it’s a short and scenic drive from your Tropical Escape 30A sanctuary to front row seats of this holiday classic. With ticket prices ranging from $20 to $45, depending on how close to the action you and your family want to be, this is an inexpensive and lovely addition to your things to do in Florida during Christmas!

At Home with Tropical Escape 30A

Our seaside condos and homes become charming Christmas cottages when your family is residing within their walls. Watch Christmas movies on state-of-the-art televisions as you sip mojitos instead of eggnog and relax with the sounds of the sea in the background. As we mentioned earlier, our fully equipped kitchens provide luxurious spaces in which you can prepare a Christmas feast and sing your favorite carols as you pull another batch of cookies from the ovens. At night, your kids won’t have to be tricked into falling asleep as our plush and soft beds will make it impossible not to drift off into a sleep filled with happy holiday dreams. Parents can sip wine as they finish wrapping presents and installing batteries, before drifting off to sleep themselves. And when Christmas day dawns bright and clear, after a breakfast of Christmas cookies and coffee and all the presents have been opened you can celebrate a white Christmas on the white sand beaches found just outside your holiday home away from home. Reserve your favorite today!
