Hitting The Trail at Arnett's Gulfside Trailrides

When the SoWal crew went horsing around at Arnett’s Gulfside Trailrides, I purposely left my phone in the van. It was a wise decision. Horseback riding through the tall pines of Pt. Washington State Forest was more relaxing than a massage.

Roads Less Traveled In South Walton

South Walton is beautiful in ways that challenge the imagination. Word has gotten out about our sleepy collection of sophisticated-yet-casual communities whose prominent allure is the pristine white-sand beach and its complement – the glistening emerald-hued Gulf. While the shore whets travelers’ appetites, it’s what’s off the beach that may be most deserving of our attention.
