RVers Guide to Scenic Highway 30A, Florida


While RVing around the United States, you may have noticed the ever popular 30A decal and wondered, “Where on Earth is this magical place?” The round, blue sticker is nostalgic for millions of travelers (yes, millions), and has become a staple in representing one of America’s most beautiful coastal drives in Florida – Highway 30A. This coastal road stretches 28 miles along the Gulf of the Florida panhandle and is riddled with stunning white beaches, emerald waters and small local towns, each unique with their own personality.

From Grayton Beach, the funky-hippie grove that is home to coolest local store The Zoo Gallery and the famous eatery Red Bar (which will be back Memorial Day 2020) to Seaside where The Truman Show was filmed, there are 12 quaint towns that make up scenic 30A. This popular destination offers RVers three amazing campgrounds and endless adventure activities. Not to mention, arguably the best fresh seafood in the entire state. Check out La Mesa RVs Guide to 30A and plan your trip to the Sunshine State today.

    Can I just say what a relief to find somebody who genuinely knows what they are talking about over the internet.
    You definitely understand how to bring an issue
    to light and make it important. More people ought to look at this and understand this side of the story.
    I was surprised you are not more popular given that you certainly have
    the gift.
