Seaside, Florida/ 30A/ Rosemary Beach Florida area is one of our family’s absolute favorite places to vacation. It is such a dreamy area, the water is turquoise, the sand is white, and there are such incredible family-friendly restaurants, shops, and activities!
This was honestly one of the most fun moments that we had on our trip to Seaside Florida! We booked this experience through a company called Light Me Up Beach Bonfires, we made s’mores, the kids played on the beach, and we soaked in the sunset as a family! A moment that I will forever cherish!
Such a fun activity as a family, especially with little ones! You can bring along buckets and tools, or book through a company like we did. The sand in Seaside Florida is powdery white and perfect for packing into sandcastles. We loved learning how to make them, it was a fun creative moment for our family! I was impressed with how they turned out. We booked through Beach Sand Sculptures SandCastle Lessons.
You can keep this simple and grab some sandwiches from a local spot, some chips and drinks and head to the beach! We had a special picnic, and it was one of the most magical experiences of our most recent visit! I booked this through a company called Fresco Picnic Company. They did the most beautiful job setting up a gorgeous picnic for our family.
They had a table setup with sweet place settings, florals, lights, a spread of food, beach balls and frisbees and everything you could ever want for a magical evening at the beach. My kids were honestly over the moon with this experience, and I could not recommend it more!
Now let’s talk about home rentals! Seaside has quite the market for gorgeous beach homes, and booking far in advance is a really good idea — because things book up fast! They have lots of homes with the Rosemary Beach Florida aesthetic.
We always book our Seaside Florida home rentals through a company called 360 Blue. They have the most dreamy houses!
For beach days, get there early! 8 or 9am is ideal, when not too many people are there, so you can pick your perfect spot! Consider bringing your own chairs, this can save money and be convenient!
If you can find a house with a pool I highly recommend, it’s a lot of fun for the kids once you’re done with your day at the beach!
Look into bike rentals and golf cart rentals! Depending on how far you are from town and the beach this can be super helpful!

There’s a lot to choose from in Seaside, and most is family friendly! I’ve seen lots of fun rosemary beach Florida bachelorette or Rosemary Beach Florida Wedding inspo too! There are even a few spots right on the beach with gorgeous views. Waits can be a bit long during busy season, so be sure to plan accordingly!
