10th Annual Digital Graffiti Festival at Alys Beach May 19-21

Once again our favorite brilliant-white beach town Alys Beach opens its doors, courtyards, and pedestrian paths to innovative artists who transform the entire SoWal resort town into a living work of art during Digital Graffiti, May 19-21, 2017.

The juried festival explores ways in which art, design and technology interact with the distinctive architecture of Alys Beach to create new forms of expression. 

State Parks & Forests in South Walton, Florida

The State Parks and State Forest Lands in South Walton are spectacular. Protected lands make up about 40% of the land south of the bay.

We are so blessed to have such treasure all around us. The lakes, bayous, creeks, forests, dunes and beaches in our parks make SoWal a very special place. Incredible landscapes with coastal dune lakes, lake outfalls kissing the Gulf, flowering dune magnolias, soaring pelicans, dancing dolphins, flower-covered dunes - the wonders of coastal nature are everywhere you turn.

Stinky's Pompano Tourney & All Day Happy Hour Starting 7 AM

It’s always fun to watch the Pompano action heat up on SoWal Beaches at this time of year.

Experienced local anglers can be seen on the beach, or on a sandbar perched on “pompano ladders” sight-fishing for the perfect cast. Adding to the excitement each Spring are salty anglers and newcomers joining together in the spirit of camaraderie and competition for Stinky’s annual Pompano Tournament. This year's 7th annual edition runs from April 1st through May 15.
