    OT: I need some advice from you Y'all Lifestylers.

    Headed to 30A next week, but haven't been down there in a while. We're in the Watercolor area so I guess I'm looking for stuff within driving distance.

    Bars? Restaurants? Kids stuff? Best place to buy stickers?

    Stickers? Drive to slow and they'll tag you with a sweet 30A decal on your rear window.

    Pro tip, pour dales on your rear window and it won't stick.

    There's also an AJ's right down the road from Red Bar.

    Cafe 30A was good last time I went.

    I knew I came to the right place. Thanks for the input S'pack.

    Said this before, but I still think someone should archive all the travel tips and life hack threads together in a board or something. The collective focused (and random) knowledge on here is always impressive.

    Second George's, Stinky's (especially for lunch), Trebeache, Cafe 30A. Don't forget the Donut Hole for breakfast. When you get tired of breakfast there, they have a good one at Stinky's. The Publix at Watercolor is the best one I have ever seen. Almost as good as a Whole Foods. Red Bar is fun and decent, but the food is just ok (still better than many). Back Porch is good for kids. They have an Acme Oyster now.

    Didn't I hear a year or so ago that they declared bankruptcy (not that particular location ... the chain)?

    Iíll never understand the love people have for Red Bar. If you like the idea of eating at Daveís Dark Horse while at the beach, then by all means go and pay beach prices (no offense Dave).
    Go to Georgeís and if you have kids, go to the Hub. Go to their website to see when theyíre playing games or movies. Try any of those places at Seaside. You canít go wrong. Thereís a Cajun place around Grayson also.

    Iím with you on this. The only time Ive attempt to go there it was a complete and total cluster. Shoulder to shoulder in the place and NOWHERE to park within a mile of the joint. Once we finally got in, they only take check or cash. Guess what we didnít have... never again.

    When we moved there in 1999 the Red Bar and Grayton were awesome you could walk right in anywhere , but with St Joe development bringing in Watercolor it totally hosed the place up. Stay closer over to Santa Rosa Beach and away from Seaside and WC. Local Catch, The View on 30A and Stinkys are all great choices. Louis Louis up on 98 is solid also. Seaside Watercolor and those spots are full of "y'all lifestylers" trying to out logo shirt each other.

    Couple of places that haven't been mentioned:

    Surfing Deer - Same owner as George's, a little fancier but worth it. Try the clothesline bacon.
    Cuvee 30A

    Couple of tips on Red Bar: 1. Parking is a cluster, but there's a free shuttle to Red Bar that runs from the 4 way stop on 30A. 2. Louie Louie is a sister restaurant, and there is large overlap in the menu.

    I used to live down there, and I personally would either catch my fish or go buy it at the markets, then cook it yourself. 80% of the restaurants are crap and buy their stuff from Sysco.

    Yeah there is another hole in the wall place with better food and way cheaper. It only takes cash and checks too.

    One of the owners of Stinkyís is a fellow State fan. He went to State from 96-98 before moving to New Orleans to go to culinary school.

    Yep. Also thinking of getting stickers made to rival 3☀️A. Of course ours would be 3🌧B.
