By Deborah S. Nelson, Author/Publisher VRTG

The vintage charm of Highway 30A is a place to remember. Just the same, mainstream travel destinations are popular for a variety of reasons. Cities such as Orlando, New York City, and Los Angeles—even Paris attracts millions of tourists per year. Obviously, they offer a concise marquee of events and attractions. However, what makes a quaint area such as Highway 30A, a special spot? Moreover, why go to a lesser known region when theme parks such as Disneyland are still a family favorite?

Highway 30A

Welcome to Florida’s Scenic HWY 30A.

If this sounds intriguing, we suggest that you venture to the Florida Panhandle to find out why—however, not to Panama City or to Destin. Instead, shift gears to a charming country highway—a 20-mile stretch of road called Highway 30A dotted with charming localities. These are Santa Rosa Beach, Watercolor, Seaside, and Inlet Beach—just to name a few. They are all rightly proud of their white beaches, nature parks, and quaint shops. Highway 30A is most often associated with South Walton and Miramar Beach. Yet, 30A towns offer some unique vacation spots with their beach cottages and sleepy sandy roads.

Southern Beauty Prevails in Savannah, GA

Savannah Dream Vacations is Savannah, GeorgiaThrough the High’s and Lows Emerges Georgia’s Historical Savannah

By Deborah S. Nelson, Author/Publisher VRTG

Have you heard of the “Hostess City of the South?” Does a welcome call like that really exist? Indeed, it does. Characterized by its cobblestone streets, for starters, Savannah, Georgia exudes ancient charm and sprawling parks. Through blending its southern hospitality with Antebellum buildings, the city is very far from ordinary.

In fact, it is the oldest city in Georgia. Established in 1773 by General James Oglethorpe (and 120 passengers) who arrived on the ship Anne—they also colonized the area. Notably, the General named the state of Georgia in honor of the English King George II. At the same time, Savannah became America’s first planned city with 24 square blocks—22 which still stand today.

The Strength of Savannah’s Beauty

Over the years, this southern town endured some rough times via the American Civil War and fever outbreaks. Yet, just when all seemed lost, this southern hub was saved by its very beauty. As legend has it—when General Sherman presented Savannah as a gift to President Lincoln, he was so impressed by the city’s beauty, he changed his intent to destroy it.

And so, saved by its beauty, the prosperous “Savannah Renaissance” began. Of course, this vintage city then became the host to many notable historic spots. These include the Historic District, the Pirate’s House, and the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist—each worth a visit on its own. Notably, as Georgia’s fifth largest city, the city offers a rich menu of exciting cultural events and entertainment.

Savannah Dream Vacations in Savannah

As Savannah grew and began to honor its own beauty, many nice spots came to life. For example, Forsyth Park, River Street, the Wormsloe Historic, and Tybee Island stand out and attract many visitors year after year. Should you decide to visit, would you like to stay in a cozy vacation home that overlooks Forsyth Park? Indeed, imagine a stay in a nice vacation home in some of the top areas in Savannah.

This all becomes available thanks to Savannah Dream Vacations (SDV). With nearly a decade of expertise, SDV offers an idea better than hotels—your own condo or private home. Whether you plan to travel alone or with a group, SDV features a range of homes—all fully furnished and fully stocked. Employ SDV’s concierge services to prep your needs before you arrive.

Sea Blue Waters, Sea Turtles—South Walton, FL

Garrett Realty Services--South Walton, FLAncient and Eco-Friendly South Walton, FL

By Deborah S. Nelson, Author/Publisher VRTG

Have you ever wondered what made the glistening white sand beaches of South Walton, FL? Well, millions of years ago, as the Appalachian Mountains eroded, quartz particles trickled down into the nearby streams. Then, these particles made their way into the Gulf of Mexico. Consequently, by the power of water, the quartz pieces broke down into smooth, sugar-like bits. Thus, this process created the crystalline white sands that make the water as blue as the sky. Pretty interesting, right?

Cultural Influences in South Walton, FL

Sea Turtles in Fort Walton, FL>

Sea Turtles is a protected species in Fort Walton, FL

Then, over the years, the beach areas were touched by a variety of cultural influences. From English, Spanish, French, to Native American—each group sought to honor their own traditions. However, it was not these cultures who made South Walton so attractive but, it was nature itself. In fact, instead of stripping the land’s treasures, the locals chose to live in harmony with nature. Consequently, this led to the rise of one of Florida’s most sustainable and unspoiled destinations.

Now, almost half of South Walton’s 56,000 acres is made up of natural reserves. South Walton is home to 15 coastal dune lakes and Longleaf pine forestlands—both rare features worldwide. Because of the large scenic area, South Walton has become a hiking paradise. Indeed, these areas are home to many endangered species including the Red-Cockaded Woodpecker and the Gopher Tortoise. Keep in mind, the locals also consider sea turtles sacred animals. South Walton even holds a Turtle Watch Program to be sure baby sea turtles make it safely into the sea.

AKR vacation rental homes are situated between Marathon and Key West, Florida. However, the majority of them are focused on Summerland, Big Pine Keys, and Cudjoe. Obviously, this means your vacation is blessed with the famous Floridian sunny weather and pristine waters. In fact, many of AKR’s homes are on the water with open-ocean views while others are on canals. Moreover, your rental will be fully furnished with kitchen appliances, linens, and more. Some accommodations will also have fish cleaning stations and boat access. Plus, with Action Keys Realty you are near local festivals, restaurants, attractions, and nature.

Key West Means Key Lime Pie

The Florida Keys have always been a highly popular place to visit, but for multiple reasons. While the beaches and the weather are absolutely wonderful, certain activities are also worth a visit. Paddleboarding, beach volleyball, aquariums, and sunset sailing is definitely fun. On the other hand, Key West is actually quite historical. In fact, the Ernest Hemingway Home & Museum is in the center of Old Town Key West. Yet, strolling down Duval Street is an excellent way to embrace all the outdoor cafes, bars, art galleries, and trendy boutiques. Of course, before you leave, you really must try the Key Lime pie.
