Check Out the Sandestin Gumbo Festival

On February 20th festival guests can enjoy live musical performances and throughout the festival, everyone is invited to enjoy cook off’s between some of the area’s best chefs! This flavorful and fun event is one that inevitably brings visitors back to the Emerald Coast time and again.

Explore the 30A Bike Trail

If you’re the type of President’s Day traveler that looks for every reason to spend as much time as possible in the great outdoors, be sure to rent a bike and set aside time to explore the 30A Bike Trail while you’re in town. This scenic route spans 19 miles of land and connects many of the 30A coastal communities that are worth checking out on their own as well. Take the trail at your own pace thanks to its paved surface that makes it easy to maneuver for visitors of all ages and cycling skill levels.
