Workcation Destination: The Beaches of South Walton
Welcome to the era of the “workcation,” a growing trend that combines remote work and play at an idyllic destination. With added flexibility (due to COVID-19) and modern technology, business people now have the ability to freely combine work and travel. Typically, a workcation revolves around the beach. After all, a sandy paradise, such as 30A Florida, has a unique ability to relieve stress and foster creativity while simultaneously enjoying time away with the kids (and your significant other, of course).
Work and Play on 30A with the Family
30A Escapes, home to the area’s most desirable selection of South Walton rentals, has luxury beach properties that perfectly suit all family sizes, styles, and budgets. Combining work and play is nothing new here along Florida’s Emerald Coast. Business-people have been utilizing the sugary white sand beaches of South Walton as a remote work base-camp for many years. Our growing collection of 30A rentals all feature high-speed Wi-Fi, multi-functional work spaces, calming decor, and easy access to the water. Whether you work best poolside, on a Gulf view terrace, on a covered patio, or with your ass in the sand toes in the water, each vacation home provides ample inspiration. It’s easy to wholly unplug, recharge, and flourish when surrounded by so much sophistication and natural Florida beauty.
11 Family-Friendly Things to Do on 30A
With the whole family tagging along on your 30A workcation, remember to plan morning and afternoon activities for the kids. Some couples take “shifts” entertaining the kids. The pool area is always a calming space to brainstorm while the kiddos splash and soak up the sun. It’s critical to remain flexible, set clear expectations during “work hours,” provide opportunities for self-entertainment (such as reading, a supervised trip to the beach, or board games), and leave plenty of time for play on 30A!
Most adults like to arise with the sun and let the kids sleep in. By the time lunchtime rolls around, you’ll have nearly a whole day’s worth of work accomplished. It’s not about how many hours you work, it’s about how much work you get done. The traditional ways we approach work are forever changing. Work less, accomplish more and there’s no better place to achieve that than in SoWal.
Naturally, the kids will grow antsy after lunch, which is why it’s vital to remain flexible with your hours: early mornings, late nights, and two-hour intervals do help. Once it’s time for the whole family to explore South Walton together, don’t forget to try these 10 unique, family-friendly activities. Trust us: The kids will have lasting memories of their family-style 30A workcation!
