With miles of beautiful sandy beaches right on the Gulf of Mexico, there is no shortage of outdoor activities and ways to enjoy the beautiful Florida sunshine this spring.

Take a Majestic Horseback Ride

One great thing about the South Walton area is that there are so many different ways to explore the surrounding areas, including hiking, biking, and more. We want to present an idea that’s a little different: horseback riding tours. There is simply no more memorable way to explore the vast wildlife around South Walton than by horseback, and companies like Arnett’s Gulfside Trail Rides are here to make sure you get the most out of your ride!

Experience an Outdoor Concert

The South Walton area of Florida experiences some of the most beautiful weather in all of the United States come spring time, and locals certainly know how to take advantage of it! If you’re looking to enjoy the cool nighttime weather and just sit back and relax outdoors, we highly recommend checking out one of the many outdoor concerts that go on weekly in the area. For example, throughout March, you can check out the Wednesday Night Concert Series at the Baytowne Wharf Events Plaza, where you can sit back and relax while enjoying some of the best local and regional talent around! There are a number of different concerts in the area all throughout the spring, so you’ll be sure to find something for every taste!

Explore the Timpoochee Trail

The South Walton area is more than just its great beaches, and we invite you to explore the natural beauty that resonates from the surrounding areas. How? There’s no better way than by taking a walk or a ride on the Timpoochee Trail. The Timpoochee Trail is an incredible 18-mile paved route that connects many of the beach neighborhoods and will take you across bridges, by beautiful sparkling lakes, throughout sand dunes and more! Whether you’re looking to take a nice morning stroll or ready to break a sweat by biking all 18 miles, the Timpoochee Trail is one of the best outdoor activities the area has to offer.
