    Seaside Commercial District: Updates Summer 2020

    Not sure about coolers but yes, Rosemary, Alys, WaterSound, etc have a single beach service you must rent from. Just my opinion but one of these resorts is not a bad choice right now because they have some control over the amount of people on the beach. Especially Seaside and Alys Beach...

    Seaside Commercial District: Updates Summer 2020

    You should defer to your rental agency / property owner. They handle access to the street pavilions. Seaside (SCDC) does not handle rental units or control access to the non-commercial areas outside of town center.

    Seaside Commercial District: Updates Summer 2020

    Seaside does not own or manage rentals. Seaside Development Corporation (Robert & Daryl Davis) owns most of the town center and leases to merchants, who have an association. Ruskin Place has their own association as does most every street marked by a pavilion. There is also a Seaside Town...

    30A Beach Trolley - Hop On, Hop Off

    Buses from Defuniak Springs to SoWal and back as a priority might be a good argument. I believe that is in the works. However if we use your logic then the businesses should pay for it because they need the labor. The trolley serves tourists (and locals), and reduces congestion and pollution. Or...

    Signs in Blue Mountain Beach

    Eyesore for sure. But I bet the residents are exasperated with reckless drivers. I bet a few signs with the outline of kids playing would work better though. Even cute handmade ones. Nothing is as bad as the humongous realtor signs though. Totally ruining Scenic 3oa.

    Customary Use and Our 30A Legacy

    Sorry I was lumping you in with beachaffront owners. From other posts on this thread apparently every single one is at war with the county. Surely that's not simply propaganda. :dunno:

    Customary Use and Our 30A Legacy

    I have no trust that we will have any competent or willing leadership that could change the way we do business in SoWal, what we expect of our visitors. But if you're ina war with the county why would anyone want to listen to you? I believe to make effective change we have to raise expectations...

    Customary Use and Our 30A Legacy

    While I agree visitor behavior and quantity have crossed a point we would like, we can't turn back the clock. To pound this forum with such an idea is nonsense. And what you describe are extreme examples. The beach is quite often enjoyable at different places, times of day, times of year. I bet...

    This is the most depressing post I have seen on this forum in 16 years since it started. All I can say is what I have tried to teach my son. Being kind is often more important than being right.

    I am referring to the piling on persons by name. Two in particular. One of whom is not here to defend himself. Personal attacks. Against the rules. Attacking issues or even a fro8is totally different. The invasion is on this forum. Anyone can see it. And I don't think calling you a snowflake is...

    Customary Use and Our 30A Legacy

    The economy is an issue, locals care about it. So do second homeowners, rental owners, including most beachfront owners. I don't get from your post that anyone is trying to make the economy part of the legal debate. But rather a practical part. Every issue your opposition brings up doesn't have...

    Customary Use and Our 30A Legacy

    Don't allow yourself to be bullied. The bullies on this thread don't realize (or probably care) that they stand out like a sore thumb in the garden that is the SoWal forum. I've seen it before. They leave as victims when they realize that bullies can't exist here. Typical pattern for bullies on...

    Golf carts on our roads

    County Highway 30A, 283, 83, 393, etc. I believe golf carts are allowed on any highway or road in Walton County that is rated 35mph or below. Which is stupid because I've yet to see a golf cart top 15 mph.

    Golf carts on our roads

    What other places in America allow golf carts on public roads? I don't mean small towns or resort towns. I mean places with hundreds of miles of roads and highways like SoWal.

    June 2018 Bed Tax Numbers

    Misc State of the South Walton Real Estate Market

    Gotcha - I'm not a realtor just a bystander - things have been red hot for a few years and I don't see it slowing down. Inventory is down a bit but often in the summer people are focused on vacations and a lot of available inventory are booked rentals so not unusual to see a summer pause.

    Misc State of the South Walton Real Estate Market

    If you look at latest report there are some numbers that declined compared to same month last year. It will be interesting to see if it is a trend. Rare to see numbers go down in Summer. Saw a report yesterday about southern california market down a bit and they said that area is usually an...

    SWFD June Activity Report

    Not sure what happened. There may not be much known. Pretty insensitive of you to bring up conspiracy instead of honoring the man at this time. Do you think someone is trying to cover up the fact that people drown here? Like every where else in the world where there is water? It's common for...

    Testing the sand for Customary Use

    There will also be plenty of new development along 331 to I-10 and east/west along 98. The limiting factor for access to SoWal beaches is going to be parking.
