If you’re anything like us, your brain thrives on coffee. Lucky for you, Amavida is one of the best coffee roasters around 30A with numerous locations, one of those being in Rosemary Beach on North Barrett Square. Consider adding a chocolate croissant to compliment your coffee and sit at the bistro tables outside for the ultimate people-watching spot. You may be lucky enough to catch a children’s play performance in the green space across the street!

At the beach, we firmly believe that biking is a way of life. It’s the best way to explore every nook and cranny that 30A has to offer. Get lost in Rosemary Beach’s winding boardwalks, secret garden, and hidden hideaways. There are so many spots that are impossible to see from a car!

Hungry? Biking can do that to you! Park your bike outside of Southside Slice, a new pizza establishment serving up hot pies, with fresh, high-quality ingredients and gluten-free options, too! Try their chicken pesto pizza, and don’t forget to order their canned wine if you’re over 21. After all, you just worked off some major calories.
