We don’t have to tell you that summer is the best time of year to make a trip to the beach. There’s nothing better than the combination of warm sunny days and cool blue water. That’s what makes Santa Rosa Beach so beloved throughout the year but especially in summer. Here, you can rent a pontoon boat and take to the water yourself for a fishing trip or just a day of sightseeing. But depending on when you time your trip this summer, you might also be able to catch some exciting summer events happening along 30A:
Concerts in the Village in Destin
Summer is the perfect time of year for live music, and you can find it at the Mattie Kelly Cultural Arts Village in Destin. The concert series starts in May and runs every Thursday. June will feature acts like The Tams, Kara Grainger, and Petty Hearts, a Tom Petty tribute band. The concerts are outside in the open air and thus perfect for a picnic, though it should be kept in mind that there are no pets allowed.
Magical Thursdays at the VIllage of Baytowne Wharf
Every Thursday from late May through early August is Magical Thursdays. The famous pirate Captain Davy hosts two magic shows, at 7 and 8pm at the Village of Baytowne Wharf. In addition to tricks and illusions for magic lovers, you’ll find live music and beautiful sunny weather close to the beach. It’s the perfect summer event, because if you miss it one Thursday, you can just find it again the next.
Mainstage: Stories By the Sea in Seaside
Looking for a fun event for the kids? Every Tuesday and Thursday in Seaside, the REP Theatre puts on exciting improvised storytelling performances at the top of the Seaside Amphitheater, with the dramatic sea nearby as a backdrop. This event begins at 4pm, perfect for the kids and perfect for you if you had other events you wanted to check out later in the evening. It’s sponsored by the Seaside Merchants.

Fireworks, BBQ, and plenty of activities on the beach; it’s the perfect 4th of July celebration and perfect for a trp for the whole family.
