Things to Know

A beach vacation doesn’t have to break the bank. From whipping up delicious bites to eat in the comfort of your gourmet kitchen to pedaling around town on a rented bike, there are plenty of fun ways to make the most of your vacation and save in the meantime. To ensure your 30A getaway stays on budget, here are a few of our favorite tips: 

Be Your Own Chef!

Our best advice for avoiding an expensive bill at the end of a meal? Cook at home! Many of our 30A homes offer gourmet kitchens with open layouts, making it the perfect space to gather and enjoy a home-cooked meal. 30A has great local seafood markets that offer the same quality as our restaurants. Take advantage of this and customize your menu to fit your family’s needs without the hefty price tag of eating out. 

Explore 30A by Bike!

30A is a hub for bicycling and it’s the best way to explore our corner of paradise! Pedaling along 30A is a fun, family activity and a cost-effective way to explore Florida’s Emerald Coast. Reserving a vacation home offers many benefits, and one of the benefits to reserving a vacation home with Royal Destinations is complimentary house bikes.

BYOB-C! (Bring Your Own Beach Chairs)

With a large party, the prices of beach chair rentals can add up quickly. Pre-purchase beach chairs in your city and bring them along for a more affordable way to relax on the beach. Pre-purchasing beach chairs allow you to get your money's worth as you can use them year after year! 

Vacation with Friends!

Rather than booking several hotel rooms, reserving a home that sleeps multiple families is a great option to save money on your 30A getaway. Plan a trip with friends and family and make memories that are sure to last a lifetime. Our portfolio of vacation homes ranges from 2 to 9 bedrooms that accommodate groups between 4 and 27 guests. You’ll be able to find the perfect 30A home that suits your group’s needs for a delightful beach vacation!  

Shop Local by Booking Direct! 

Third-party rental sites may offer an abundance of rentals to choose from, but they also have a hefty rental fee when it comes time to book. Book directly with Royal Destinations! As a local vacation rental company, we guarantee the best possible rate that allows guests to avoid those additional pesky fees.
