What is it about beach trips that just make them magical and where you don’t want to leave? I love going to the beach. And a beach that I had never been to until recently was Rosemary Beach. It’s located near Panama City Beach on highway 30A (the same highway where you can find Seaside).
I absolutely loved Rosemary Beach. It is developed like Seaside, but not quite as crowded. And the food is just to die for. I highly recommend visiting, if you have the chance. The water is crystal clear, the food (like I said) is fantastic, and the houses/condos are amazing. Oh, and did I mention that we had a tram to take us to and from the beach? That was so amazing.
Anyways, let me tell you how you plan your trip to Rosemary Beach.
Where to stay
It is so easy to plan your trip to Rosemary Beach. All you really need to do is secure your condo or house you want to rent. I suggest staying at Rosemary Beach, only because the houses are so cute! We stayed at the next beach over, Seacrest Beach, but Rosemary Beach was a short and sweet walk – about 5 minutes to get there.
What to do there
Once you have your house/condo secure, get there and just relax. You don’t need an agenda when you are at the beach. Go with the flow. You want to stay at the beach all day? That sounds great! Do that. You only want to stay at the beach for 2 hours? That sounds good too. Go shopping the rest of the day and just relax. Some people take going to the beach a bit too seriously, so relax and just go with the flow. There doesn’t need to be any sort of agenda or plan. I mean, you are at the beach! Why you would plan anything?
If you are staying at Rosemary Beach, you don’t need to go very far for great food. We ate at Cowgirl’s Kitchen for lunch one day. We also had dinner at Paradis. This place was so freaking good. I loved that we had our fancy dinner there, because it was truly wonderful.
The beaches are the white sandy beaches you hear about in Florida. They are gorgeous. But what sets the beaches along the Gulf apart are the crystal clear blue water. I have never seen anything like this ocean water except in the Gulf. And that makes it so special. I can’t wait to go back there because there is no place like it in the US.
The Gulf beaches kick the Atlantic Ocean beaches out of the park. Sorry to anyone who lives on the Atlantic Ocean side, but the Gulf beaches are so much better.
