If you’ve followed along with me for a while, you already know that the beaches along 30A in Florida are my favorites in the world. My family was already there for Easter and Memorial Day this year! Kent and I usually don’t like to vacation in the same spot over and over, but 30A is our exception, and we usually visit there a few time each year. So when my friend Jessica asked me to join her on a girls’ trip there last month, I was all in.
If you read this post about our trip to 30A for Easter, you’ll know I didn’t love the hotel we stayed at. :/ I’ve been wanting to check out The Pointe on 30a and I was so excited when Jessica told me that’s where we were staying! We always drive by it when we’re in town and it looks so pretty from the road. I’m happy to say that the property is just as gorgeous on the inside too! I stayed in one of their 3 bedroom units with a few other girls and it was amazing. Our room was huge and the decor was beautiful. The first few pics at the top of this post show their pool area and the rooftop deck. The pool is massive and it’s surrounded by the prettiest cabanas. The rooftop was gorgeous as well and it has an amazing view. It was the perfect spot to watch the sunset on our first night in Florida. The Pointe’s location is great because you can walk to the beach and the whole 30A area has soon much to do.
We did a beer tasting and tour at Grayton Beer Company one day, and rented electric bikes from Eventure the next day. I’ve got to say, the electric bikes were so. much. fun. We had a BLAST and I highly recommend them if you’re in the area. I don’t think I’ve laughed that hard in a long time.
My friend Jessica (who planned our whole trip) is actually a “local” and lives on 30A. It was so nice being there with her because she had the best restaurant recommendations all weekend. I feel like Kent and I have gotten into the habit of going to the same spots every time we’re in town, so it was so nice to discover some new places that we’d never tried before! My favorite breakfast spot she took us to was Grits and Grind. It was sooooo good and within walking distance to Rosemary Beach or Alys Beach. She took us to three new lunch spots I’d never tried and my favorite was Grayton Brewpub (get the Mac ‘n Cheese). Pescado was definitely the prettiest restaurant we visited. Jessica took us there for drinks and appetizers one afternoon and that’s where a lot of these photos were taken. The interior is absolutely stunning and their outside deck has an amazing view.
I was so heartbroken to see that many of the places we visited on our weekend getaway were damaged or destroyed during Hurricane Michael right after we left. If you’re looking for a way to help, I have an answer! My sweet friend Jessica (the one who lives on 30a) has the cutest t-shirt shop called 30babe and she’s been donating a portion of her shop’s proceeds towards hurricane relief this month! If you love 30A or are planning a trip there soon, her shirts are perfect! It’s such an easy way to make a difference, and get a cute top at the same time. #winwin
A huge thank you to Jessica for planning our weekend, and The Pointe on 30A for hosting us!
