Independence Day and the beach go together like mom and apple pie (or some other appropriately patriotic metaphor). In addition to truly spectacular fireworks displays in virtually every beach community along Scenic Highway 30A, there's also an annual Fourth of July Parade that runs from Seagrove Beach to Seaside. It's a decidedly small town affair with decorated bicycles, golf carts,...
It started out as a pretty cool little idea about bringing world-class songwriting talents to South Walton during January (a slower month that visitors typically don't associate with a weekend trip the beach).

Every year, this Telluride...

But it's also special because of a tradition here known as ArtsQuest, an annual festival hosted by our Cultural Arts Alliance. Each year, more than 130 artists are hand-selected by a jury,...
