Regatta Bay, an Upscale Destin Community

Allyssa Smith Share

Regatta Bay is nestled in what can be described as a sanctuary. Within the gated community of Regatta Bay exists many architectural gems and one of the finest championship golf courses in the country.

Watercolor, Florida’s Prized Possession

Allyssa Smith Share

Watercolor, without a doubt, is the single most impressive development I have ever laid my eyes on. I live along highway 30A, where many spectacular communities are nestled.
