SoWal Style - Exotic Courtyard Home in Alys Beach
April 7, 2018 by SoWal Staff
Most people who visit Alys Beach cluster around the vibrant amphitheater with its lush lawn, fun splash fountain, and dining and shopping at the Alys Shoppe and the ever-popular and ever-delicious George's Restaurant. There are also evening concerts, bike rentals, donuts and a myriad of activities swirling.
Another favorite activity is strolling down the middle of town, ambling along the magical pedestrian walkway lined with stunning Alys architecture from the Gulf of Mexico to picturesque Lake Marilyn on the north side.
But the real center of Alys Beach for many is the newly-expanded Fonville Press, the re-imagined children's playground, and the sales center on Scenic 30A. Just up the street from Fonville is a new row of homes that encapsulate everything wonderful about Alys Beach and the South Walton lifestyle.
