WOW!!! We just picked up a copy of Southern Living‘s April 2012 issue, which has a full-page feature article about and our (suddenly-even-more-)famous 30A stickers!

You’ve probably seen them — round, blue 30A stickers — adorning cars on highways all over the South…. more than a quarter of a million are now strewn throughout the planet and spotted in places as far afield as Afghanistan, Uruguay and Iceland.” ~Southern Living

With a devout following of 15.7 million reader worldwide, we couldn’t be more honored and humbled by this incredible exposure. Sincere thanks to our friends at Southern Living (and especially to the author, Alex Crevar!), who are always so generous with their support of Gulf Coast residents and businesses. Be sure to pick up a copy when the April issue hits stands, and look for the 30A sticker!

We’d also like to thank for sponsoring our 30A stickers, with 100% of all local donation box revenue going to support Walton County’s Alaqua Animal Refuge. If you’d like to buy a 30A Sticker online, they’re only $3.95 for a pack of 5 (free shipping).

Here are a couple of other quotes from the Southern Living article:

What started as a way for a family to welcome friends has become an important Gulf Coast tourism tool, racking up some 150,000 unique viewers per week, a Facebook roll call of more than 75,000 fans and Android and iPhone apps” ~Southern Living has exploded.” ~Southern Living

Wow. Just wow. Thanks again, guys. We really appreciate your support and kind words, and we hope to see you back here on 30A again very soon.

Finally, we’d also like to give a shout-out to The Local Voice up in Oxford, Mississippi for this hilarious Onion-style 30A spoof. Thanks for the LOL, Smithers! =)
