From dog-friendly beachfront restaurants to scenic dog walking trails, 30A is as much a dream vacation destination for your dog as it is for you! Hit Morris Lake Trail for a nature-filled day of exercise and sightseeing, or explore the neighborhoods of Seaside with extra large sidewalks, and plenty of friendly hellos (which just so happens to be one of the best ways to spot an Emerald Coast local).
If you’re looking to be more adventurous, taking your dog out on the water can be tons of fun! Treat your pup to a paddleboard ride or a private boat cruise.
4. Pet-Friendly Lodging
