t's never too soon to begin planning your next beach trip. Even though I'm an expert (joking) (sorta) when it comes to Destin, the South Walton/30A area has grown so much since I have lived there that I enlisted some help. Chastity Adams is a resident of Santa Rosa Beach (aka South Walton) and along with her daughters, Reese (11) and Maggie (9) and her husband, Chad, the Adams family takes advantage of living the SoWal life more than anyone I know. Chastity just happens to be one of my best friends, so I asked her to write a guest post and guide to 30A for all of you who are ready to plan your next trip to the beach. Chastity is such an inspiration to me and a wonderful example of a mother, wife, and friend. She's beautiful from the inside, out and she's the "big sister" I didn't have. Chastity and her family moved to SRB about 6 years ago and it's so much fun to get to visit them when we are in the area. Without further adieu, here is Chastity:
Growing up, I always complained about how there was never anything to do at home. Almost immediately upon moving to Birmingham for college, I realized how privileged I was to have so much at my fingertips. There are always new things to do in Destin, but here are just some of my favorites.
For as small as Destin is, it surely accommodates a lot of restaurants! When we begin planning a trip home, one of the first things I do is plan the restaurants I want to go to. There truly is some amazing food in this town - and so much of it is locally owned!
Now that the summer is starting to wind down, I finally have a chance to sit down and write my little guide to Destin, Florida, also known as my hometown.
