For Little Ones

30A is a hub for adventure for small children! To learn about life under the sea, head to 30A Sea-Life Discoveries where you can choose expeditions to snorkel with turtles, kayak on a dune lake while looking for sea life, and go on a nocturnal scavenger hunt!

In the summertime, Rosemary Beach hosts sand art workshops on Fridays allowing little ones to use their imagination. For even more hands-on artistic activities, head to Rock Paper Scissors 30A — an art studio that features walk-in art projects available for you and your little ones.

Rosemary Beach is also home to a weekly magic show “Anything Could Happen.” Be delighted as you watch the husband-wife duo perform illusions, escapes, and amazing tricks including fire and water!

Looking for a souvenir for your little one? Duckies Shop of Fun in Seaside is a charming store filled with toys, clothes, and gifts for small children. We recommend buying a net for hunting crabs on the beach once the sun goes down!

For Teens 

Children playing on a 30A beach

For kids that are a bit older, 30A is a hub for outdoor fun and exploration! Cross an item off your bucket list by taking surfing lessons with Austin Magee’s Surf School! You can choose between private lessons, group lessons, and even a mini session to understand the basics. If you are already a pro, rent a surfboard and other water sports rentals and head out on the water for yourself.

The best way to explore 30A? On a bicycle! The Timpoochee Trail goes through Blue Mountain Beach, Walton Dunes, and Seaside while also winding through three state parks. Explore more of 30A’s unique natural environment by paddling on one of the dune lakes lining 30A.

For fans of live music, teens will be able to find free summer concerts in Rosemary Beach, Seaside, and Alys Beach. You can also find unique opportunities like tie-dying shirts at the Alys Beach Amphitheater!

30A Family Fun

Finally, there are plenty of activities to get the whole family involved in your 30A beach vacation! Take your beach day skills to the next level with a sandcastle lesson, indulge in smores from your beach bonfire, or enjoy a movie night in Seaside’s Central Square every Friday during the summer.
