Have you ever wondered what those blue and yellow 30A stickers were all about? Well last week we went down to northwest Florida to check it out. 30A is a scenic highway running through Fort Walton Beach which is just to the west of Panama City. Other than the drive through the wasteland of a state, Alabama, it is fantastic. We stayed at Seacrest Beach which is in between Rosemary and Alys beach. The sand and ocean are out of this world and great for little kids. If you are an urban planning geek, it’s also fun to see where the architecture and planning firm DPZ & Co. made their mark in New Urbanism with the Seaside Beach project 35 years ago. It was fun walking and riding through the different areas from Rosemary Beach to their latest project on 30A, Alys Beach and see how things have changed over time. Here we are riding our cruiser bikes after dinner: and a few pictures from my morning walk through Alys Beach .
