Slow Down to Enjoy the Scenery
WaterColor, and in fact all of 30A, is perfectly designed to explore from the seat of a bicycle. All WaterColor rentals are within an easy bike ride to the beach, not more than two miles away. Additionally, the neighboring town of Seaside is also well-designed for cycling and pedestrian comfort, so you never need to get in the car. For those who want to explore further afield along 30A, the Timpoochee Trail is an 18-mile coastal pathway stretching all the way from Dune Allen to Inlet Beach. Grab your sunscreen, water bottle, and camera, and hit the trail! All along the way, you’ll find one beautiful dune lake after another, gorgeous white sandy beaches, and plenty of beach-front restaurants and food trucks for refueling.
One of WaterColor’s great draws is Western Lake, the biggest of the dune lakes in this unique coastal ecosystem. A simple kayak or paddleboard rental will enable you to spend the day exploring its shores, which adjoin Point Washington State Forest most of the way around. Point Washington is another fun spot for nature enthusiasts, who can take advantage of the 10 miles of hiking and mountain biking trails through this fascinating mixed forest habitat.
More to Discover and Explore
Inevitably, your welcoming, cozy and luxurious Watercolor vacation rental will tempt you to stay inside and enjoy all of the comforts that await. While you’ve definitely earned time to kick back and relax indoors, a trip to Watercolor is made that much better when you make it a priority to get out and explore in Florida-inspired style. With so much to see and do, you’ll find that a single trip to Watercolor and visits to the surrounding communities often isn’t enough. Don’t be surprised when a first visit turns into a recurring annual event. When you’re looking to make the most of every moment, here are a few places you’ll definitely want to add to your Florida-bound itinerary.
Visit Santa Rosa Beach
A trip to Watercolor is all about the vistas and when you’re passionate about the beach and looking for that unsurpassed view too, make your way to Santa Rosa Beach at least once during your stay. Known for its stunning emerald waters and sugar-white stretches of sand, Santa Rosa Beach is a popular place to spend the day, yet large enough that there’s plenty of space for everyone to enjoy the scenery and sun! As an added benefit, this beach keeps visitors close to hiking and biking trails, fine dining options as well as shopping stops that are sure to inspire. Bring your beach chair and umbrella and get ready to settle in for a sensational day of working on a tan when you head to Santa Rosa Beach during your visit.
Lace Up and Head Over to Point Washington State Forest
Watercolor and the surrounding communities beckon visitors to simply sit back and take in the beautiful sights, but for those that love to lace up their boots and hit the trails, there’s no place quite like Point Washington State Forest. This sprawling area of protected land is as pristine as it is intriguing and the vast maze of looping trails proves irresistible to those that love to get out and explore nature. Boardwalks are installed throughout the forest for those that take a more leisurely approach to hiking while there are also plenty of trails perfect for mountain bikes and Jeeps when adrenaline-pumping fun is more your style. From bird watching to wildlife spotting, Point Washington State Forest is a must. The towering pines make this place picturesque for those that have a passion for photography. If you aren’t sure where to begin when it comes to the many trails to choose from, Eastern Lake Trail Look comes highly recommended for its moderate challenge and exciting scenery.
Fun in Town
Where the beautiful beaches, dune lakes, and forest lands give way to the town itself, there’s plenty more to do and explore. WaterColor has numerous great restaurants, with outdoor dining where you can enjoy the fine weather, as well as adorable shops to browse. Enjoy a great meal at Fish Out Of Water restaurant, a centerpiece WaterColor restaurant with a fabulous view of the Gulf. Nearby Seaside is also a hub for the arts, with the town’s outdoor amphitheater providing regular entertainment, and the REP Theatre offering the finest professional plays on the Florida Coast. Imagine riding your bike to a show, then pedaling home again under the stars! It’s a vacation dream.
