SoWal Lists

SoWal Staff and insiders have a blast compiling SoWal Lists. We love to share places and things we love about South Walton. We don't pretend that our lists are complete. They're always up for debate and always changing. SoWal Lists are not voted on formally - just our picks for the best South Walton has to offer - and we're always looking for new places to check out.
