The folks at Alys Beach have once again given SoWal one of the best parties of the year with outlandish costumes, DJ Stevo, professional entertainers, and superb lightshow on a perfect night at the amazing Caliza Pool.
Sea oats sway in the breeze as the scent of salty water drifts though the air. Tinkling glass wind chimes compete with the strumming of an acoustic guitar for listeners' ears. And stretching across a parking lot are an array of diverse colors and textures offered by over 100 exhibiting artists.
October is the ideal time to visit SoWal, but this fall there’s a new reason to visit the beach. Rosemary Beach Uncorked is bringing together eight restaurants in a SoWal-sponsored event that will present their signature dishes paired with boutique wines on Oct. 23 from from 1 to 5 p.m.
On October 9th, a night of hauntingly-good family fun is planned for visitors who dare to visit Camp Helen State Park.
The Friends of Camp Helen are once again hosting tours that include ghost stories and spooky tales intertwined with the history of the park as recollected by residents and visitors.
The Ghost Walk and History Tour is on Oct. 9 from 5 to 8:30 p.m.
The Seaside Yolo celebration was chock full of SUP-inspired activities designed to treat both participants and spectators.
This year's event was expanded to include both a recreation class three-mile race and an elite class seven-mile race as the headlining events on September 18th.
Tom and Jeff believe you only live once. What could be more satisfying than sharing that philosophy with millions? But they don't just tell it, they prove it.
When Jeff Archer and Tom Losee created YOLO Board in 2006, they shared a goal to introduce stand up paddle boarding (SUP) to South Walton.
(Sharks?!? see video below)
A major part of their strategy was to create events that were new and exciting.
Last show is July 31!
37 Plays in 97 minutes: A comedy roller coaster worth every cent!
How can 37 Shakespeare plays be condensed to one fluid, comical performance with only three actors? Great Question! But every Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the Seaside Repertory Theatre, that is exactly what is happening
There are tourists and then there are tourists - no matter where you travel. In Firenze or Milano, the shoes are usually a dead giveaway. The natives are wearing soft leather loafers. The Americans are often decidedly less stylish.
In Seaside, the tell-tale signs are often times even more revealing. Anyone in a bathing suit and flip flops is here to have fun.
The men in black and women decked out head to toe in an equally monochromatic manner of dress are likely on a mission, or more specifically, an architectural pilgrimage.
There will be a lot of hand holding on the beaches Saturday, but what we really need is a group hug.
Hundreds of SoWal residents and tourists, as well as thousands of concerned citizens worldwide will gather along the beaches to send a message, "no to offshore oil drilling, yes to clean energy".
SoWal.com is proud to be a sponsor of such a unique and wonderful event. This year's version (#3) was the best yet.
The folks at Alys Beach have gotten a firm grip on what it takes to put on such a complicated show of digital art projected onto the white walls of buildings all over town.
