History of Santa Rosa Beach
Santa Rosa Beach sits in the beautiful Panhandle area in Northwest Florida, also called the "Emerald Coast", just fifteen miles from Destin. Santa Rosa Beach is one of south Walton County's oldest beachfront towns on Scenic Highway 30A and runs north past Highway 98. The town was named after Santa Rosa Plantation, which sat north from Highway 98 near Hogtown Bayou and flourished during the 1800s. Now, Santa Rosa Beach, with its sugar-white sand beaches, is one of the most beautiful coastlines in the country. When you arrive in the area of south Walton County and start seeing upscale Gulf-front condominiums and high-end shops, you will know that you have reached Santa Rosa Beach. The intersection of Highways 393 and 30A includes shops, restaurants, a coffee shop, and park just off the road. The beach line itself is a mile in length and is comprised of new gulf-front beach homes and many small townhome and condominium complexes. Santa Rosa Beach includes many other small beachside communities, such as historic Point Washington, but Santa Rosa is the largest seaside community in the surrounding area. Unique boutiques, galleries, shops, and restaurants are interspersed within the area, and Silver Sands Factory Store, one of the largest outlet malls in the country, is only ten miles from Santa Rosa Beach.
Nearby you can find historic Point Washington, home of the Wesley House, located in the Eden State Gardens, which was constructed in the late nineteenth century and contains one of the world's largest collections of authentic antiques of the Louis XIV era. The state preserve of Topsail Hill is probably one of Florida's most pristine sites; since the Europeans settled the area nearly five hundred years ago, its dunes, beach, lake, and swamp of cypresses has remained almost completely untouched. You can find several entrance points into the State Forest of Point Washington, fifteen thousand acres with over ten miles of hiking trails, in Santa Rosa Beach. The 2007 Seabreeze Festival of Jazz was hosted at the two-acre amphitheater at Gulf Place. Santa Rosa's Golf and Beach Club sits between the areas top attractions: the sugar-white sand beach and lush woodland. It boasts eighteen difficult holes that snake through and around the white sand, blue ponds, and green vegetation of the area. Many other golf courses lie within minutes of the town, leading Golf Digest to name the area as one of the "Best Areas For Golfing." Santa Rosa Beach also offers three regulation-size tennis courts, as well as swimming, scuba diving, fishing, kayaking, canoeing, boating, bicycling, and birdwatching. The number of recreational opportunities is limitless.
Santa Rosa Beach's restaurants are not to be missed. They offer an amazing variety, ambience, and price; whether you're looking for casual, family-style, local fresh seafood, or internationally-renowned cuisine, you can find it all here. Seven local restaurants were named as one of the "Top 400 Florida Restaurants" by Florida Trend Magazine.
Other nearby beachfront communities include Seaside, Watercolor, Grayton Beach, Sandestin, Destin, and Rosemary Beach. The eighteen-mile coastline encompassing these cities of the Emerald Coast of Florida provide the state's most beautiful scenery. Santa Rosa Beach is located conveniently in the middle of them all, with fewer crowds than the more well-known destinations.
