Finish the sentence: You're So SoWal If...


Each and every year in SoWal we have a bigly fun time reading entries and picking winners from our annual "You're So SoWal" contest.

Or email to

Each year is unique with lots of South Walton beach lovers sending in entries by email, comment form, forum, and social media. Heck, we even got one taped to our windshield ... Thanks to all who enter! We want to hear from you - whether you are a first timer or if you are a veteran and enter each and every year.

What does it mean to be so in love with South Walton Beaches? What's unique about South Walton? What's quirky? What's beautiful? What's funny? How about that traffic?!? Why is that sign on the beach!? Where's my next Margarita at?!

Last year's contest got a flood of responses, with hundreds of entries from locals and visitors. The SoWal Staff and some discerning local judges helped us narrow down the best entries.
