Highway 30A Beach Beauties

The beautiful homes found on 30A inspired me put this blog post together.  Being from the south and having lived in the panhandle area for three plus years this highway of upscale communities is packed with sites and activities for your family to enjoy.   If you are not familiar with the area and are visiting Eglin AFB or Tyndal AFB, this is definitely a must for a road trip.  The shops and restaurants are extraordinary and the water is a beautiful crystal blue.  You will not be disappointed, Alys Beach first stop, beware of  eye candy overload.

Alys Beach is a new urban community that has joined Bermudan architecture with the gracious private courtyard living. The homes posted below are mostly rentals, click the picture for details.  There are a few available for purchase in the 1-8 million plus price range,  a girl can always dream! via  www.tutudivine.com via www.alysbeach.com via  www.alysbeach.com/amenities/caliza-pool via  www.alysbeach.com/rental-properties/25-moongate-court via www.alysbeach.com/rental-properties/223-north-somerset-street via www.pinterest.com via www.alysbeach.com/rental-properties/251-north-somerset-street via www.alysbeach.com/rental-properties/30-north-charles via www.alysbeach.com/rental-properties/75-governors-court via www.alysbeach.com/rental-properties/251-north-somerset-street via  www.alysbeach.com/rental-properties/38-whitby via  www.alysbeach.com/rental-properties/30-north-charles via  www.alysbeach.com/rental-properties/49-governors-court via  www.alysbeach.com/rental-properties/30-north-charles via  www.alysbeach.com/rental-properties/100-north-charles via  www.vrbo.com/482496 via  www.alysbeach.com/rental-properties/84-nonesuch-way via www.alysbeach.com via  www.alysbeach.com/alys-beach-availabe-homes/c6-140-charles-street via  www.alysbeach.com/alys-beach-availabe-homes/f3-22-whitby-court via  www.alysbeach.com/alys-beach-availabe-homes/a1-16-seven-wells-court via  www.alysbeach.com/alys-beach-availabe-homes/f3-22-whitby-court via  www.alysbeach.com/alys-beach-availabe-homes/c6-140-charles-street Hope you have enjoyed taking a look at Alys Beach, if you are ever in the area stop by and take a stroll.  Next stop, the lovely Seaside community.  Thank-you for reading my blog, please share and pass along with your friends.  Have a great week!
