As the weather turns from hot to warm and the time spent at the beach is cut down by at least an hour due to the shortening of the days, you may not realize that fall is practically the best time to plan a visit to the Rosemary Beach community! The crowds lessen with the kids being back in school, but the weather is still so nice that a day at the beach will be refreshing and relaxing. This guide to our favorite fall activities in the Rosemary Beach community will ensure that every minute you spend with us will be the best minutes of your life.
30A Farmers Market in Rosemary Beach, 28 N Barrett Square
One of the best ways to get to know the place you are visiting is by exploring the local farmers’ market, and our 30A Farmers Market is the perfect example.

It also features arts, crafts, baked good, and other items that will make beautiful gifts for family and friends that weren’t lucky enough to get to come along with you on this trip of the lifetime! Open on Sundays from 9 AM until 1 PM, the 30A Farmers Market is the perfect fall adventure.

Oh how far we have come from the early days of travel. While once we only had the choice of two double beds, two queen beds, or one king in the cramped and sterile hotel rooms we crammed our entire families into, now we have choices. We can choose between condos, cottages, and townhomes. We can choose the carefree beach life or sophisticated city living. And when you pick the Rosemary Beach community for your Florida vacation rentals, you are choosing luxury, comfort, style, and convenience! This guide to the property options available to you in the Rosemary Beach community may make your decisions harder at first, but so much more worth it in the end!
Now the location of your property in the Rosemary Beach community is actually a simple choice: Do you want something closer to the shops and restaurants, or do you prefer being right at the beach, letting the sounds of the surf lull you into a deep and uninterrupted sleep every night?
Cozy Condo or Cottage?
This choice thing is wonderful, especially because there are no wrong choices in the Rosemary Beach community, and again this choice is simple. Smaller families or couples often decide that a beachfront condo with a balcony is their best option, while larger traveling groups will go for the cottage that is spacious and offers room to spread out. A property on the beach, however, offers the ultimate in luxuries and can make your vacation dreams come true, so this third option is often quite a popular one.
Forget about room service and a free newspaper shoved under your door every morning; you are a discerning traveler, and you want to be pampered and spoiled during your Florida getaway! You want large kitchens with the latest in upscale appliances, and if your property comes with an outdoor kitchen as well, all the better! Theater rooms with large screens and comfy recliners offer the perfect way to fill a few rainy hours, and game rooms with pool tables and game consoles make your teen almost crack a smile. Swimming pools and hot tubs, outdoor fireplaces, and of course the balcony with million-dollar views will make you happy while soft beds, plush sofas, and air conditioning will ensure that you are rested too!
The Best Choice You Will Make
Choosing the Rosemary Beach community for your vacation accommodations is the best choice you will make this year. Reserve your favorite property today!

Every property we offer is different, and depending on your choice, you may find a private pool or hot tub in the backyard or may have access to both in the community amenities. Living areas with comfy couches and smart TVs are where you and your guests will take unplanned naps, watch the big game, or catch up on the reading you never have the time to do during real life. When your eyes grow heavy and the velvety sky turns a rich purple, sliding between the silky soft sheets is one of life’s greatest luxuries as you fall into a deep and dreamless sleep with a smile permanently cemented to your face! The last 12 months may have been rough, but better times are ahead, starting with your stay in the Rosemary Beach community!
Sand Castles, Barbecues, and Laughter

Pescado Seafood Grill & Rooftop Bar, 74 Town Hall Road #4B, has it all, including a wine list that will make a true oenophile weep tears of sheer joy. And if not all your party enjoys the sweet taste of fresh seafood, never fear, as their Prime Filet Mignon served with garlic mash potatoes, tri-colored carrots, and mushroom ragout is tear worthy as well!
A Little Ice to Go with Your Visit

The Search for the Perfect Hot Cocoa
Even in Florida, the need for the perfect cup of hot cocoa is something we used to spend hours seeking out, and then we discovered La Crema Tapas & Chocolate and life has been perfect ever since! Ok, we may be exaggerating somewhat, but once you make your way through their chocolate menu and land on their exquisite sipping chocolates, we think it will change the way you look at hot chocolate adventures forever. Thick, rich, and creamy, they offer four different infusions to help create the beverage you will never stop dreaming about, including mocha, peppermint, hazelnut, and for all of you spice lovers out there, the unique hot chili infusion! Try them all and be sure to report back to us which is your new favorite!

Winter in the Rosemary Beach community may not be like the winters you are used to at home. Instead of below freezing temperatures, the mercury rises above the mid-60s, and instead of white snow covering the ground, it is white sand beaches you will find whenever you step outside your winter escape! The one thing that never changes, however, is the desire for a hot winter meal on a cold (or in this case, cool) winter’s eve! This guide to the best places to get a hot winter meal in the Rosemary Beach community will ensure you get the dish you crave the most!

Saddle up for your favorite southwestern dish at the Cowgirl Kitchen right here in Rosemary Beach! Open for dining in and taking out, this charming spot offers everything from pizza and sandwiches to tacos that will make you glad you didn’t wait until Tuesday to visit. Its location is close enough to your vacation home away from home you might just find yourself a regular! Although we love everything on the menu, we crave their drunken tacos, created with blackened shrimp, cilantro-lime crema, chipotle salsa, and queso fresca. The heat of the blackening spices and the chipotle salsa will warm you from the inside out, and their chocolate chip cookies offer the perfect sweet taste to end your winter meal!

As the old year winds to an end and the new year peeks shyly from around the corner, we often have mixed feelings about both! We are happy to leave all the bad that may have occurred throughout the last 12 months behind (especially THIS year) but we are reluctant to say farewell to the good. The new year offers a blank slate, but who can say for certain whether that is a bad or good thing? In any case, sometimes the best way to shed our fears and feel the promise of a new year is by trying something new—for example, spending New Year’s Eve in the idyllic Rosemary Beach community in one of our luxurious seasonal sanctuaries! This guide to everything wonderful about the new year in Florida will help to make this celebration one you will never forget.

Be sure to make your reservation early for this exciting event to end 2020!
When you look back over the last year, what was the one thing that remained strong, supportive, and never changing?

Not all New Year’s Eve celebrations have to involve glitz and glamour; sometimes the best moments are the quiet ones spent at home with those you love. Our cozy and comfortable luxury properties in the Rosemary Beach community are the perfect spaces in which to show your family how much they mean to you, as you create your favorite dishes in our fully equipped kitchens, watch the ball drop on state of the art televisions, and share a champagne toast and a kiss as the clock strikes midnight. 2021 is guaranteed to be the best year yet when spent with Rosemary Beach.

Once the children go to bed, sipping another cup of Irish while wrapping some last-minute gifts offers some one-on-one time with your traveling partner. And in the morning, when the carnage of Christmas wrapping paper is strewn all over the cozy living areas, the delighted squeals of excitement have muted to quiet whispers of fun as everyone explores their gifts in more detail, happy families can sit back, relax, and pat themselves on the backs.
