Grayton Beach

A perfect afternoon is in store when you browse through the colorful Shops of Grayton. Here you’ll find a great selection of art, apparel, gifts, and more. They are open Monday - Friday from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. If you enjoy a charming small-town feel, you’ll also want to check out Uptown Grayton. Airy boutiques, coffee shops, and specialty stores line the streets of this upscale shopping center. Grab a cup of coffee at one of the nearby cafes, and then shop to your heart’s content! They are open from 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. every day of the week.

Many of our luxurious properties are centrally located to shopping, dining, and entertainment on Grayton Beach. When you choose to stay in Copperline, you’ll be within walking distance of it all. Sea Prize is also near the main attractions. With room for 18, it’s the perfect destination for your next family gathering!


If you have never been to Seaside, a visit to this idyllic beach town is a must. The Merchants of Seaside feature a variety of shops, restaurants, open-air markets, and entertainment. If you are searching for the best-kept-secret, stop by Ruskin Place. This quiet park is surrounded by art galleries, boutiques, and winding oak trees. You can also find original fine art paintings, jewelry, apparel, and more. And don’t forget to stop by Sundog Books for some great reads to take to the beach!

When searching for accommodations on Seaside, no place compares to Bobby D’s. This 3-bedroom retreat is nestled in the heart of it all. You’ll be steps away from all of the best shopping, dining, and things to do on Seaside!

Santa Rosa Beach

The Gulf Place Town Center has everything you need to make your South Walton vacation a memorable one. From boutiques and gourmet markets to pet shops and cafes, you’ll find it all here. Make sure to visit YOLO Board and Bike for paddleboard rentals, bikes, gear, and more. Then, head over to Retail Therapy. These stores feature more than 100 vendors and 60 local artists, and the prices range from affordable to high-end. You can check it out from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day of the week.

With spectacular views from every floor, Ebb&Flow is the perfect lodging choice for your stay on Santa Rosa Beach. Another one of our favorites is Sea La Vie. This luxurious vacation home has just been completely renovated and is a short walk from Gulf Place.

Rosemary Beach

For a shopping experience like no other, you must visit the Merchants of Rosemary Beach. As you stroll along the town’s cobblestone streets, you’ll pass specialty shops, florists, spas, toy stores and so much more. All of the shops are within easy walking distance to one another. There is truly something for everyone! Afterward, you can enjoy a casual lunch or an upscale dinner in town.

No matter what you are looking for, you are sure to find it at the WaterColor Merchants. The WaterColor shops feature children’s apparel, sports gear, and an assortment of clothing stores. And if you have an appreciation for art, you’ll definitely want to visit the Blue Giraffe.
