If you’ve ever driven down Scenic 30A through Seaside, then chances are you've seen one or more of the Seaside pavilions on the Gulf.
They are beautiful and enticing. They may be the most photographed architecture in South Walton, and they are also quite significant to SoWal’s history and architectural story. The nine pavilions help make our community stand out from other beach destinations, and each structure is unique in appearance and designed by a different architect.
At SoWal.com, we are committed to helping locals and visitors stay safe while enjoying our beautiful beaches. The beach is such a wonderful place to relax. At the beach, life is beautiful and we slip into a state of mind where we feel comfortable, carefree, and secure. That's what a vacation is all about!
However, the gulf waters can be dangerous and it's important to always put safety first. For detailed information about Beach Safety go here >
It’s time to start planning summer activities for the kids in SoWal, and the South Walton Fire District has the perfect opportunity for them to learn better beach safety, develop a skill set for the future and develop new friendships.
