Dads are heroes. They’re the ones who teach you little things like how to ride a bike or tie your shoelaces. They make time for all the birthdays, talent shows, sports events, and graduations. Without dads, the world wouldn’t be as awesome as it is. Spend this Father’s Day in Rosemary Beach, how about a surprise holiday getaway to show your dad how much he means to you? Our rentals in Rosemary Beach are an ideal vacation destination with incredible attractions. Here are a couple of highlights.
Father’s Day Rentals in Rosemary Beach
Bring out your dad’s inner golfer on the immaculate green courses in Rosemary Beach. South Walton and its environs feature well-manicured golf courses that offer a world-class golfing experience. The beautiful Florida backdrop and the year-round sunshine make for a fun day to land a couple of birdies and bogeys.
Two renowned golf courses near Rosemary Beach are Santa Rosa Golf and Beach Club and Origins Golf Club. Both courses are a mere 10-minute drive from Rosemary Beach and offer something unique. If your dad is a seasoned golfer, Santa Rosa Golf and Beach Club features an 18-hole course and offers a tougher challenge. Origins Golf Club features a 6-hole, 9-hole, and 10-hole course and is a better fit for beginners and junior golfers.
The Awe-Inspiring State Park
For nature-loving dads, Rosemary Beach lies just ten miles from the iconic Eden Gardens State Park. Stretching out for some 163 acres, Eden Gardens State Park features a picturesque two-story mansion built back in 1897. The distinguished home is the main highlight, and a guided tour offers a look at its rich history, including its renovation and handing over to the Florida Park Service.
Aside from the mansion, Eden Gardens State Park offers impeccable ornamental gardens such as the Secret Garden, Butterfly Garden, and Heritage Rose Garden. A stroll through the serene garden provides a period of tranquility and meditation, particularly at the reflection pond with its water lilies and koi fish. If your dad is up for it, you can both hop on board a boat and explore the Choctawhatchee Bay or the Intracoastal Waterway for a relaxing paddling session.
An Iconic Drive Up the 30A
Along the Floridian coastline lies the spectacular highway 30-A, a 20-mile stretch of road from south Walton towards the Emerald Coast Parkway. The archetypal highway has various attractions, from lovely antique stores to incredible art galleries. Along the way, he’ll encounter the Choctawhatchee River and see a variety of bird and plant species, including the famous bald eagle, egrets, and some tupelos. He may even catch a glimpse of some turtles or alligators.
You both can take a car, but a bicycle would be more fun. Tag along with your dad on the smooth Timpoochee Trail and enjoy a scenic bike ride. If he’s worried about the terrain being too bumpy, don’t worry. Most of 30A is relatively flat, with only a few elevated sections that require extra peddle power.
Rosemary Beach is a fisher’s haven with several fishing spots he can access along the Gulf Coast. From Destin and Panama Beach, charter boats can easily take you and your old man out for deep-sea fishing. Not far from Rosemary Beach, several fishing charter companies offer fishing expeditions.
If your dad prefers staying closer to the shore, he can cast his lines from the comfort of the beach and catch a few fish for lunch. For a more secluded fishing excursion, head up the 30A to the bay areas, including Choctawhatchee Bay. There are several docks and fishing boats where you and your dad can fish without too much distraction.
Whether it’s breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner, Rosemary Beach has tons of delightful restaurants ready to serve exemplary culinary delights. A fan-favorite is Cowgirl Kitchen which offers a vast menu with everything from breakfast burritos and juicy briskets to taco salads. For a filling breakfast experience, your dad can try The Summer Kitchen Cafe and sample tasty pancakes, omelets, French Toast, or their famous breakfast roll-ups and wash it all down with a blueberry or green smoothie.
If your dad loves his pizza, Ticheli’s Italian Pizza is just the place to go. Thanks to imported Italian flour and freshly-made Italian pizza sauce, Ticheli’s delivers some of the best pizzas near Rosemary Beach. The restaurant bakes all its pizzas in its wood oven, conferring a unique incredible flavor. The menu features 17 pizzas he can choose from, with both vegan and non-vegan options and additional toppings to boot.
