The 30A Wine Festival at Alys Beach is a beloved event in South Walton, hosted by Alys Foundation, and benefiting Children's Volunteer Health Network, an outstanding local organization providing medical and dental services to local children.
One of the most beautiful new towns in the world, Alys Beach is located on Scenic Highway 30A in Florida’s panhandle, along what The New York Times said “may be the best beach in the continental U.S.” The resort town’s extraordinary architectural vision drew inspirations from both Bermuda and the family courtyard homes of Antigua, Guatemala. A walk through Alys Beach takes you from the white sands of the beach, through an active town center of shops, restaurants, and outdoor cafes, down streets of elegant courtyard homes, and all the way to a nature preserve of wildflowers and towering pine trees.
