Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days Of Summer

With miles of pristine shoreline, 30A is every beach bum’s dream! Pack your shovels and nets and let the kids go shelling in the tide, or build sandcastle cities till the surf rolls in. Set up the cornhole boards and volleyball net for the tournament of the season. Or just grab your towel and your favorite beach read and settle in for a day of relaxation in the sun. When evening falls, wouldn’t it be nice to take your cocktails or dinner out on your private balcony or beach-front deck? You can book the luxurious Atwoods Cottage & Carriage House in Rosemary Beach and do just that! Enjoy all the amenities of home in this beautiful private water-front cottage this Memorial Day in 30A.
